Speaking of Beauty - First edition

[EAN: 9780300098938], Gebraucht, guter Zustand, [PU: Yale University Press, New Haven, Conn + London], ARTS AMERICAN ART AND LITERATURE ENGLISH IRISH SCOTTISH WELSH GREAT BRITAIN HISTORY CRITICISM LITERARY THEORY ETC AESTHETICS, Art|Criticism, Art|General, Literary Criticism|American|General, Literary Criticism|European|English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Literary Criticism|General, Literary Criticism|Semiotics & Theory, Philosophy|Aesthetics, Jacket, Marfree, acidfree F/Fine 1stEd; not marked-in, clearance or discard. Usually mails within 12 hours. ; 8.5 x 5.8 x 0.8 inches; 209 pages; From Publishers Weekly: How we talk about beauty-"how they, you, and I talk about it, and why we say the things we say"-is the theme of this densely packed meditation, aimed at those who delight in, say, anyone's daring to call a poem "gorgeous. " Donoghue assumes a reader as well read as he, a flattering assumption from a distinguished New York University professor and prolific critic (Adam's Curse; The Practice of Reading; etc. ) . His tone, lucid and jargon-free, reminds rather than instructs. It helps to have been there (or close by) when Donoghue speaks of Plotinus' Ennead or points out that "In The Rape of the Lock what was once a Christian cross has become a piece of jewelry on Belinda's bosom; you can find it beautiful if you are indifferent-as Pope is not-to its Christian purport. " While sporadically curmudgeonly in his dismissal of feminist and post-colonial theory, cultural studies and all other studies of "gender, race and sexual disposition, " Donoghue is an incisive, insightful analyst, particularly of Hawthorne, James, Fitzgerald and Ruskin. There's room in Speaking of Beauty for remarks on Turner's paintings, the Elgin marbles and landscape architecture. The book is unapologetically rife with quotations, snippets that conjure fuller texts from Poe to Eliot, and from Wordsworth to Wallace Stevens; a slender appendix assembles some literary passages about beauty. All this and more (Kant and I. A. Richards most significantly) is tied together in the service of a spiritual quest, rooted in his conviction that "the relation between commerce and beauty settled down into domestic comfort so easily that modern artists. Yielded up the beautiful to the common culture and resorted to the sublime and.to the grotesque. " Donoghue attempts nothing less than the dispossession of beauty in this slim but capacious volume. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information , Inc. Product Description: Writing about his newest book, Denis Donoghue says, "I do not offer to say why Jennifer Lopez and Brad Pitt are beautiful, or what cultural axioms are at work in the common agreement that they are. Instead I think of beauty as a value-like its companions, the true and the good-and I ponder the ‘words of tribute' that are devoted to it. " Here one of the foremost living critics of the English language, Denis Donoghue, examines instances of beauty and the language that beauty inspires. An appreciative and wide-ranging reader, Donoghue discusses Kant, Schiller, Keats, Hawthorne, Dickinson, Ruskin, Henry James, Proust, Yeats, Housman, Woolf, T. S. Eliot, and many more. He considers some of the main theories of beauty and their terms of reference and appreciation. And he examines the relation of beauty to form: form as found in landscape, persons, poems, paintings, and musical phrases; and form as in the difficult question of beauty and its wild neighbor, the sublime. Writing with his customary elegance and lucidity, Donoghue tells us that beauty is a topic that has once again become interesting and even fashionable, and in this book he shows how it can be discussed with intelligence and decency.
