About this product
- DescriptionThe American critic William V. Spas, a pioneer of postmodern theory and co-founder of one of its principal organs, the journal boundary 2, is, in the words of A William V. Spas Reader coeditor Daniel T. O'Hara, everything that current post-modern theory is accused of t being: polemical, engaged, prophetic, passionate. Informed by his experience as a prisoner of war in Dresden, Spas saw dire con-sequences for life in modernist aesthetic experiments, and he thereafter imbued his work with a constructive aspect ever in the name of more life. A William V. Spas Reader collects Spas's most important critical essays, providing both an introduction to his prophetic, visionary work and a provocation to the practice of humanistic criticism.
