Wyndham Lewis

Wyndham Lewis<br>photo by [[George Charles Beresford]], 1913 Percy Wyndham Lewis (18 November 1882 – 7 March 1957) was an English writer, painter and critic (he dropped the name "Percy", which he disliked). He was a co-founder of the Vorticist movement in art, and edited the literary magazine of the Vorticists, ''BLAST''. His novels include his pre-World War I-era novel ''Tarr'' (set in Paris), and ''The Human Age'', a trilogy comprising ''The Childermass'' (1928), ''Monstre Gai'' and ''Malign Fiesta'' (both 1955), set in the afterworld. A fourth volume of ''The Human Age'', ''The Trial of Man,'' was begun by Lewis but left in a fragmentary state at the time of his death. He also wrote two autobiographical volumes, ''Blasting and Bombardiering'' (1937) and ''Rude Assignment: A Narrative of my Career Up-to-Date'' (1950).
