Convinced that all aspects of modern culture have been affected by
avant-garde art, Poggioli explores the relationship between the
avant-garde and civilization. Historical parallels and modern examples
from all the arts are used to show how the avant-garde is both symptom
and cause of many major extra-aesthetic trends of our time, and that the
contemporary avant-garde is the sole and authentic one.
