Henry Mead recently published a chapter entitled ‘Dora Marsden and Anarchist Modernisms’ in Women, Periodicals and Print Culture in Britain, 1890s-1920s: The Modernist Period, ed. Faith Binckes and Carey Snyder (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2019), pp. 226-241. The chapter contains a discussion of Max Stirner’s radical individualist theory of history plus details on Emma Goldman’s and Benjamin Tucker’s anarchisms. It identifies Marsden’s quarrel with Tucker as signalling a divergence, continuing through the interwar period, between an anarchist ‘early modernism’ and a conservative ‘high modernism’.
