Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

A political critique of postmodernism and an analysis of the modern urban cynic. Bewes charts the development of a culture of cynicism in forms such as an obsession with finality and integrity, a widespread retreat into introspection and inertia, and a neurotic attachment to metaphysical truth.

Timothy Bewes holds a doctorate in English Literature from the University of Sussex and has taught both at Sussex and the University of North London.
