ABSTRACT
This essay demonstrates that T. E. Hulme's distinction between 'romanticism' and 'classicism' was introduced in The Commentator as part of an attempt to provide the Conservative Party with an efficient propaganda strategy. The antithesis, which Hulme proposed together with Edward Storer, was intended to demarcate an absolute ideological and philosophical difference between the Conservative and the Liberal or Labour positions; at the same time, Hulme and Storer also hoped to unify Conservative political principles under the catchword 'classicism'. Acknowledging the context in which this antithesis originated highlights the way in which the language of modernism is imbricated with political propaganda.
