Synopsis

Perspectives on Contemporary Literature Literature and the Other Arts by David Hershberg

Today's music, painting, and film share with literature in the development of a new aesthetic, even as these other arts influence (and are influenced by) literary themes and structures. And at the same time the music and art of the past continue to re-echo in twentieth-century letters. The thirteen essays gathered here open a fine and varied view of the ways in which contemporary literature interacts with the other arts. Surrealism in French painting and literature, collage theory and the cutups of William Burroughs, texts of Butor as shaped by works of Duchamp-this volume offers a rich harvest of perceptive studies on these and other aspects of a fascinating topic.
