Distinguished and highly original, the irrepressible controversialist Wyndham Lewis (1882–1957) is known for his sharp wit and sardonic insight. Though Lewis was a prolific British author, Paleface: The Philosophy of the Melting Pot, ringing perhaps a bit too true and nearly prophetic, remains one of his lesser known works, serving as a lively and provocative exposition of racial problems.


Originally published in 1929, Paleface examines the presence and role of “race-consciousness” in contemporary literature and poetry, providing brilliant commentary on the works of Sherwood Anderson, D. H. Lawrence, Ernest Hemingway, and others. In the work, Lewis contextualizes Western man’s curious modern tendency for self-destruction, particularly in light of the First World War, and considers the “melting pot” model that America aspires to and the resulting amalgamation of the “Palefaces.”


Antelope Hill Publishing is proud to bring Paleface: The Philosophy of the Melting Pot by Wyndham Lewis back into print, just as relevant today as when it was first penned, complete with a foreword by John Chapman.
