SLOW ART
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Slow Art is the perfect antidote for ourimage-saturated age. Exploring the work of a rangeof contemporary artists who use a meditative process, Slow Art argues for a counterpoint to thedisposability of contemporary culture. The authorasks why we, as artists, make art and what it mightdo for all of us artists and viewers. Cancontemporary art reach beyond the need forentertainment and the shallow currency of fashionablesocial and political issues or are we faced withthe seemingly endless variety of what has becomestandardised as International Biennale art: consumed,digested and discarded as readily as last year swardrobe?Slow Art argues for a new art based on the hand andthe body, unafraid of history and willing to talkabout what it means to be human. Drawing on objectrelations theory and examining the evidence of thework produced by a range of Australian and International artists, the author looksat the words of artists in notebooks, diaries andinterviews. Slow art also examines the work of Vermeer, Sanchez Cotan and Francisco Zurbaran as exemplars of a meditative mode of painting.

Chaucer's Neoplatonism
214,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Although centrally focused on varieties of friendship and love in Troilus and Criseyde, the discussion in Chaucer's Neoplatonism includes the dream visions as well as aspects of The Canterbury Tales. It lays out Chaucer's Boethian-inspired, cognitive approach, drawn mainly from Book V of the Consolatio, to whatever subject he treats. Far from courting skepticism, Chaucer gathers many variants of such matters as love, friendship, and community within a meditative mode that assess better and worse instances. He does so to illuminate a fuller sense of the forms that respectively underlie particular manifestations of love, joy, friendship or community. That process is both cognitive and aesthetic in that beauty and truth appear more fully as one assess both better and worse instances of an idea or of an experience. Chapters on the dream visions establish Chaucer's reasonable belief in the truth-value of fictions, however grounded on exaggerated and mixed tidings of truth and falsehood. Chapters on Troilus and Criseyde examine relationships between the main characters given the place of noble friendship within an initially promising but then tragic love story. The drama of those relationships become Chaucer's major claim to fame before the tales of Canterbury, where, for meditative purposes, he gathers various gestures toward community among the dramatically interacting pilgrims, while also exploring the dynamics of reconciliation.

Henry, Himself
19,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Praise for Henry, Himself: A New York Times Editors' Choice 'Beautifully spare and poignant . . . a novel that charms not through its plot, but through its subtle revelations of character and the human condition.'   —The New York Times Book Review  'O’Nan has returned to the mode that marks his best work, capturing America’s shaky middle class with dignity . . . Tracking Henry’s subtle interplay with [his wife] Emily, and the unspoken mysteries that concern him, O’Nan reveals a rich inner life.' —Minneapolis Star Tribune 'O'Nan, with some of his most gorgeous writing, [provides] Henry instances of unexpected grace . . . This novel is a lovely tribute to the enduring mystery of an ordinary life.'  —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 'As usual, this profoundly unpretentious writer employs lucid, no-frills prose to cogently convey complicated emotions and fraught family interactions. The novel makes no claims for Henry or his kin as exceptional people but instead celebrates the fullness and uniqueness of each ordinary human being. Astute and tender, rich in lovely images and revealing details—another wonderful piece of work from the immensely gifted O'Nan.' —Kirkus (starred review) 'Charming, meditative, gently funny, and stealthily poignant portrait [of Henry] . . . O'Nan elevates the routines and chores of quiet domesticity to a nearly spiritual level in his lingering attention to details . . . Like Richard Russo and Anne Tyler, O'Nan discerningly celebrates the glory of the ordinary in this pitch-perfect tale of the hidden everyday valor of a humble and good man.' —Booklist 'Engaging and immersive . . . One of O’Nan’s gifts is his ability to craft his characters with such uncanny attention to detail that the reader comes to care for them as the author does . . . [A] poignant, everyman story.'  —Book Page Praise for Emily, Alone: 'O'Nan's best novel yet . . . It's heartbreaking stuff—I will confess I found myself sobbing at certain, often unexpected points . . . and yet the novel's brilliance lies just as much with O'Nan's innate comic timing.'— The New York Times Book Review 'Emily is as authentic a character as any who ever walked the pages of a novel . . . filled with joy and rue . . . an ordinary life made, by its quiet rendering, extraordinary.' —The Boston Globe Praise for Wish You Were Here: 'O'Nan's finest and deepest novel to date . . . the action rises and ebbs with the rhythms of daily life . . . O'Nan draws [his characters] with sympathy and subtlety, especially the women.' — The New York Times Book Review 'Stark and brilliantly mesmerizing . . . You read on less to find out what happens to the Maxwells than to become better acquainted with the characters, whom O'Nan makes fascinating and familiar.  Here are 'our real lives.''  —Los Angeles Times

Ordinary Oblivion and the Self Unmoored
40,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Rapp begins with a question posed by the poet Theodore Roethke: GCGBPShould we say that the self, once perceived, becomes a soul?GC Through her examination of PlatoGCOs Phaedrus and her insights about the place of forgetting in a life, Rapp answers RoethkeGCOs query with a resounding Yes. In so doing, Rapp reimagines the Phaedrus, interprets anew PlatoGCOs relevance to contemporary life, and offers an innovative account of forgetting as a fertile fragility constitutive of humanity.Drawing upon poetry and comparisons with other ancient Greek and Daoist texts, Rapp brings to light overlooked features of the Phaedrus, disrupts longstanding interpretations of Plato as the facile champion of memory, and offers new lines of sight onto (and from) his corpus. Her attention to the Phaedrus and her meditative apprehension of the permeable character of human life leave our understanding of both Plato and forgetting inescapably altered. Unsettle everything you think you know about Plato, suspend the twentieth-century entreaty to GNever forget,G and behold here a new mode of critical reflection in which textual study and humanistic inquiry commingle to expansive effect.
