'Quantum Poetics offers a better context in which to make sense of Modernism's obsessive need to isolate elementary literary units: 'classicism', for example, might explain the temperament that produced the vortex, but reference to science explains the force and motion of the vortex itself. Best of all, Albright gives us a new way to understand how Modernism's various characteristic ambivalences resolve themselves.' Journal of English and Germanic Philology
