Read’s involvement in the Leeds Arts Club when he started University there in 1912 led him to an aestheticized Nietzschean individualism. 8 It was here that Read first encountered Marx’s Capital, Kropotkin’s Fields, Factories and Workshops and pamphlets on anarchism, as well as works by Bakunin. Reading Edward Carpenter’s Non-Governmental Society also had a decisive impact on Read at this time. 9 He ended the war with the beginnings of a more socially developed formulation of individualism. The war brought Read to an intense awareness of brotherhood and solidarity, which penetrated his Nietzschean notion of the significance of the individual.
This was the crucial underpinning for the political significance Read attributed to the spontaneous forms and harmonies of art. He stated it in these terms: ‘The most general law in nature is equity – the principle of balance and symmetry which guides the growth of forms along lines of the greatest structural efficiency. ’5 He also drew from the anarchist tradition a Proudhonian emphasis on the division and decentralization of political power and its dissolution in local and direct forms of social administration.
