About this product
- DescriptionThis book considers the interplay between art and literature by comparing representation techniques in passages from Les Miserables with artistic techniques in selected drawings by Victor Hugo. In both his artistic and literary production, Hugo uses a composite representational strategy that blends verbal and visual elements - attempting to break free of textual and pictorial media constraints. His dual interest in text and image foreshadows contemporary expressive production, which w dominates communication.
