Om boka

Mute Speech counts among Jacques Ranciere's most intensive and compelling studies of the origins and consequences of modern literature. Taking German Romantic philosophy as a point of departure and setting his sights on Flaubert, Mallarme and Proust, Ranciere draws his readers through the many contradictions that give rise to the aesthetic turn of our age. Elegantly translated by James Swenson, Mute Speech invites us to think afresh the philosophical, aesthetic and political dilemmas that ground the modern canon. -- Tom Conley, Lowell Professor of Romance Languages and Visual & Environmental Studies, Harvard University
