On Ugliness - Umberto Eco - engels

Artikelnummer: 00003304
Beschikbaarheid: Op voorraad

(Engels) With his characteristic wit and erudition, Umberto Eco draws on examples in art and literature from ancient times to the present day. The striking images and anthological quotations in On Ugliness lead us on an extraordinary journey through the passions, terrors and nightmares of almost three thousand years, where acts of rejection go hand in hand with touching instances of empathy, and an aversion to deformity is accompanied by seductive violations of all classical canons. Abundantly illustrated with demons, madmen, vile enemies and disquieting presences, with horrid abysses and deformities that verge on the sublime, with freaks and the living dead, On Ugliness is conceived for a fast and diverse readership, and is an invaluable companion volume to On Beauty.
