The art and aesthetics of boxing by David H. T Scott( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What separates the chaos of fighting from the coherent ritual of boxing? According to author David Scott, it is a collection of aesthetic constructions, including the shape of the ring, the predictable rhythm of timed rounds, the uniformity of the boxers' glamorous attire, and the stylization of the combatants' posture and punches. InThe Art and Aesthetics of Boxing, Scott explores the ways in which these and other aesthetic elements of the sport have evolved over time. Scott comprehensively addresses the rich dialogue between boxing and the arts, suggesting that boxing not only possesses intrinsic aesthetic qualities but also has inspired painters, graphic designers, surrealist poets, and modern writers to identify, expand, and respond to the aesthetic properties of the sport. Divided into three parts, the book moves from a consideration of the evolution and intrinsic aesthetics of boxing to the responses to the sport by cubist and futurist painters and sculptors, installation artists, poster designers, photographers, and, finally, surrealist poets and modernist writers. nbsp; With distinctive illustrations and photographs in nine short chapters, Scott creates a visual as well as a textual narrative that supplements and concretely demonstrates the deep, dynamic relationship between the art of boxing and the world of art and literature."--Jacket
Cultural icons by Keyan G Tomaselli( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2020 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Eiffel Tower - once a proud symbol of industrial development, now an alluring come-on to a romantic vacation in Paris. Nelson Mandela - originally a grassroots hero of the liberation from apartheid, recently featured in the magazine article "The Power of Brand Mandela." This book explores these and other contemporary cultural icons that, over time, have been endowed with a complex and powerful layering of meanings. The authors analyze the way in which such icons, whether objects or persons, living or mythical, are constructed and disseminated. They also critically investigate the implications, in semiotic and cultural terms, of the accretion of meaning and popular recognition attached to them, their moral and aesthetic ambiguity, and their enduring appeal to a fascinated public. This slim and provocative volume is ideal for courses in the many disciplines addressing cultural studies, popular culture, and semiotics."--Jacket

Dynamo island : the cultural history and geography of a utopia by David H. T Scott( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dynamo Island is an account of a contemporary ideal world set in an Ireland-sized island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. It expresses the possibility of a modern society living in harmonious ecological balance with its environment. The ethos of the place is built around the notion of the human being as a dynamo managing and self-regulating energy in a way that draws on without harming the natural world. One of the island’s main features is that there are no cars, only bicycles along with a comprehensive public tram and electric train network
Sonnets by Stéphane Mallarmé( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stéphane Mallarmé (1842-1898) was without question the poet's poet of the European Nineteenth Century. He is best known for his L'après-midi d'une faun (A Faun's Afternoon) that was set to music by Claude Debussy and subsequently choreographed for ballet, and danced by Vaslav Nijinky. The blend of sense and sonority throughout his work, particularly noticeable in his sonnets is by turns sparkling, baffling or spectacular. Canadian poet, Marshal Hryciuk has over the last 40 years brought a symbolist approach to his work in haiku, concerte and long-poem poetries and translation." -- rear cover

Cultures of Boxing by David Gordon Scott( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prés. de l'éd.: Bringing together boxing writers from different cultural and disciplinary perspectives, this book offers a vital and original contribution to the understanding of this enduringly fascinating and controversial sport. This collected volume investigates what is at stake in boxing in the modern world by exploring different aspects of boxing culture and problematic concepts attached to the sport such as masculinity and violence. This approach implies input from different academic and creative disciplines including aesthetics, cultural studies, creative writing, anthropology, history, literature and sociology. The points of view of participants in boxing as a sport, amateur and professional, will also be incorporated. In this way, themes as different as what it feels like to receive a punch on the nose or the role of fist-fighting in traditional Russian folk customs will be explored
