Description: West Lafayette: Purdue University Press, 2012. 24cm., pbk., 280pp. illus. Summary: Text and Image in Modern European Culture — a collected volume edited by Natasha Grigorian, Thomas Baldwin, and Margaret Rigaud-Drayton contains articles which are transnational and interdisciplinary in scope. Employing a range of innovative comparative approaches to reassess and undermine traditional boundaries between art forms and national cultures, the articles shed new light on the relations between literature and the visual arts in Europe after 1850. Following tenets of comparative cultural studies, work presented in the volume explores (international) creative dialogues between writers and visual artists, ekphrasis in literature, literature and design (fashion, architecture), hybrid texts (visual poetry, surrealist pocket museums, poetic photo-texts), and text and image relations under the impact of modern technologies (avant-garde experiments, digital poetry). The discussion encompasses pivotal fin-de-siècle, modernist, and postmodernist works and movements in Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia, and Spain. A selected bibliography of work published in the field is also included. The volume will appeal to scholars of (comparative) cultural studies, comparative literature, literature, art history, and visual studies, as well as to a wider academic public and general readers, and it would serve well as a textbook in senior undergraduate and graduate seminars.
