“Outside I am a freer”    — Wyndham Lewis

Believing the artist should be an explosive force, Wyndham Lewis sent shock waves through England’s literary establishment in 1914-1915 by publishing his revolutionary BLAST. But Lewis returned from World War 1 to a different literary scene, his former colleagues either dispersed or killed. His own iconoclastic energies remained unflagging and nine years after the War singlehandedly published The Enemy, three issues of a tabloid-format rebel magazine.

In Volume 3 Wyndham Lewis produces his polemic ‘The Diabolical Principle,’ skewering 'transition,' house organ of the Paris-based English avant-garde, as a latter-day manifestation of late nineteenth century symbolism.

“A man of understanding is to benefit by his enemies...
He that knoweth he has an enemy will look
circumspectly about him to all matters, ordering his
life and behavior in better sort.”
— from Plutarch’s Moralia
