Wyndham Lewis established The Arthur Press in 1926 specifically for the purpose of publishing The Enemy, outlining in the initial volume's Editorial his intention to use the work as a 'serious unpartisan criticism' of society, and commencing with his essay 'The Revolutionary Simpleton' in which he savages a perceived romanticism in the works of Joyce, Pound, Stein, even Charlie Chaplin. The third volume indicates that a fourth issue was planned, but it was sadly never to see the light of day.
