About this product
- DescriptionMoving deftly among literary and visual arts, as well as the modern critical can, Christopher Prendergast's book explores the meaning and value of representation as both a philosophical challenge (What does it mean to create an image that stands for something absent?) and a political issue (Who has the right to represent whom?). The Triangle of Representation raises a range of theoretical, historical, and aesthetic questions, and offers subtle readings of such cultural critics as Raymond Williams, Paul de Man, Edward Said, Walter Benjamin, and H l ne Cixous, in addition to penetrating investigations of visual artists like Gros, Ingres, and Matisse and significant insights into Proust and the onus of translating him. Above all, Prendergast's work is a striking display of how a firm grounding in theory is essential for the exploration of art and literature.
- Author BiographyChristopher Prendergast is professor of French literature at Cambridge University and a fellow of the British Academy. His six previous books include The Order of Mimesis and Writing the City: Paris and the Nineteenth Century.
