About this product
- DescriptionCombining classic theory with current discourse surrounding art history's infamous S word, this collection contains some of today's most highly esteemed critics', artists' and poets' approaches to the sticky subject of the contemporary Sublime. The companion anthology to Uncontrollable Beauty , this volume pushes the polemic on beauty even further, speculating where the beautiful and the sublime will be situated in a post-modern, new-techlogy atmosphere. The collection includes essays by such creators and critics as Harold Bloom, Dave Hickey, Barbara Maria Stafford, Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe, Carter Ratcliff, Wendy Steiner, Thomas McEvilley and Anthony Hayden-Guest, many of which were composed expressly for this anthology.
