The homemade world Hugh Kenner describes exists alongside the world of Pound, Joyce, and Eliot. While they were laying the international foundations of literary modernism, another modernism far more specifically American was being born in the work of William Faulkner, Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore, Ernest Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Kenner deals in turn with each of the six, with the American conditions that shaped them, and with the peculiarly homemade strengths that led to their achievement. A Homemade World is a book to stimulate thought, argument, and an altogether fresh consideration of twentieth-century writing.
