📝The Work of Art in the Age of Its Technological Reproducibility and Other Writings on Media Book Synopsis : Benjaminâe(tm)s famous âeoeWork of Artâe essay sets out his boldest thoughtsâe"on media and on culture in generalâe"in their most realized form, while retaining an edge that gets under the skin of everyone who reads it. In this essay the visual arts of the machine age morph into literature and theory and then back again to images, gestures, and thought. This essay, however, is only the beginning of a vast collection of writings that the editors have assembled to demonstrate what was revolutionary about Benjaminâe(tm)s explorations on media. Long before Marshall McLuhan, Benjamin saw that the way a bullet rips into its victim is exactly the way a movie or pop song lodges in the soul. This book contains the second, and most daring, of the four versions of the âeoeWork of Artâe essayâe"the one that addresses the utopian developments of the modern media. The collection tracks Benjaminâe(tm)s observations on the media as they are revealed in essays on the production and reception of art; on film, radio, and photography; and on the modern transformations of literature and painting. The volume contains some of Benjaminâe(tm)s best-known work alongside fascinating, little-known essaysâe"some appearing for the first time in English. In the context of his passionate engagement with questions of aesthetics, the scope of Benjaminâe(tm)s media theory can be fully appreciated.

📒The Work Of Art ✍ Gérard Genette
📝The Work of Art Book Synopsis : What art is—its very nature—is the subject of this book by one of the most distinguished continental theorists writing today. Informed by the aesthetics of Nelson Goodman and referring to a wide range of cultures, contexts, and media, The Work of Art seeks to discover, explain, and define how art exists and how it works. To this end, Gérard Genette explores the distinction between a work of art's immanence—its physical presence—and transcendence—the experience it induces. That experience may go far beyond the object itself.Genette situates art within the broad realm of human practices, extending from the fine arts of music, painting, sculpture, and literature to humbler but no less fertile fields such as haute couture and the culinary arts. His discussion touches on a rich array of examples and is bolstered by an extensive knowledge of the technology involved in producing and disseminating a work of art, regardless of whether that dissemination is by performance, reproduction, printing, or recording. Moving beyond examples, Genette proposes schemata for thinking about the different manifestations of a work of art. He also addresses the question of the artwork's duration and mutability.

📒Introduction To The Work Of Donald Meltzer ✍ Silvia Fano Cassese
📝Introduction to the Work of Donald Meltzer Book Synopsis : Introduction to the Work of Donald Meltzer is a critical survey of Donald Meltzer's central themes which simultaneously focuses on the most important concepts of his work. This detailed volume should not only spark the reader's interest in these fascinating, yet complex, themes but also encourage readers to deepen their knowledge of them. 'I have tried to point out an aspect which, in my view, is fundamental in Meltzer's theory: that is, the possibility of communicating those typical aspects of his analytical work which go beyond the well-established and reassuring technique. Meltzer's interest constantly turns to that area which is difficult to describe in words and perhaps cannot be expressed in conventional language: the emotional area of non-verbal communication, of reverie and unconscious thinking.'- From the Preface

📝The Work of Joe Webb Book Synopsis : During the 1920s and 1930s, builder Joe Webb constructed nearly three dozen log homes in the tiny Appalachian town of Highlands, North Carolina. The cabins were built without the aid of power tools--or architectural plans--and all of these exquisite structures are located within a five-mile radius. In The Work of Joe Webb, photographer Reuben Cox captures the atmosphere and ambience of these idiosyncratic and important historic buildings. Using a large-format field camera, Cox has documented all of Webb's extant cabins. Beautifully presented in tritone, his images explore the lush, rhododendron-filled settings of Webb's constructions as well as the rich grain of their chestnut and pine posts and beams. Cox, a Highlands native, also includes an essay that places the work within a regional and historical context. Yet this is less an analytical taxonomy of Webb's cabins than an expansive meditation in which Cox employs his own art to understand another man's life work and the extraordinary qualities of that which is handmade and unique.

📒Specters Of Marx ✍ Jacques Derrida
