Marianne Moore : the poet's advance by Laurence Stapleton( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a full-scale interpretation of Marianne Moore's poetry and prose, starting with her early experiments and exploring the range and variety of her artistic achievement. It portrays the self-discipline and the fidelity to experience that were the source of her originality. Laurence Stapleton's study of unpublished manuscripts, including notebooks, drafts of poems, and correspondence, supports her account of Marianne Moore's progress in the mastery of form. Her methods of work in the early satires, in the more openly constructed poems of the 1930s, and in the major ones of World War II, emerge in the context of her life as a professional writer. The spontaneity and inventiveness of her later books resulted from her La Fontaine translation and her response to music, to painting, and to the changing American scene. Constantly in view are Marianne Moore's literary relationships with Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, Wallace Stevens, and William Carlos Williams, as well as her appeal to a large circle of readers that made her become "New York's laureate." The insight that may be gained from this book should bring a better understanding of her accomplishment and of her place in American literature. Originally published in 1978. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Constitutional bricolage by Gerald Garvey( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uniquely blending anthropological and exchange theory, Professor Garvey offers a new interpretation of American constitutional development. His thesis: judicial reliance on a limited stock of received forms has inhibited the development of new concepts that could adequately reflect fundamental changes in society. Professor Garvey reviews the history of the Supreme Court in light of the ""bricolage"" theory. The Court, by interpreting the Constitution to effect laissez-faire and Social Darwinism, helped bring about a society ostensibly patterned on the buyer-seller model, marked by free exchan

Ocean flowers : impressions from nature by N.Y.) Drawing Center (New York( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book focuses on natural-history imagery in the mid-nineteenth century, with particular emphasis on the botanical drawings and photograms by the artist Anna Atkins (1799-1871) and her Victorian contemporaries." "In addition to providing a feast for the eyes, the book illuminates shifts in the way the natural world was represented. In the mid-1800s, the advent of photography provided new possibilities, generating as much creative fervor as digital media have in recent years. In addition to handmade drawings, hand-colored prints, nature prints (direct imprints from plants), and natural illustrations (real specimens mounted on the page), artists began making photogenic drawings (as William Henry Fox Talbot first dubbed his early photographs) to record botanical specimens. A kind of "drawing with light," this new art form complemented, rather than superseded, the other forms of graphic media. Far from rendering conventional approaches obsolete, it encouraged experimentation with all kinds of media." "Ocean Flowers demonstrates how this concept of "fluidity" in crossing the traditional borders between media is paralleled in the contemporary art world. Replete with two hundred color illustrations, the book accompanies an exhibition of the same name organized by The Drawing Center in New York in association with the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, Connecticut. More than just an exhibition catalogue, it includes essays by the coeditors, as well as by the artist Craigie Horsfield and scholars Edward Eigen, Elaine Scarry, and Kathryn A. Tuma."--Jacket

Gillian Wearing and Claude Cahun : behind the mask, another mask by Sarah Howgate( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This beautifully illustrated book draws together for the first time the work of French artist and writer Claude Cahun (1894-1954) and British contemporary artist Gillian Wearing (b. 1963) Although they were born almost a century apart, their work shares similar themes - gender, identity, masquerade, and performance. In 2015, Sarah Howgate traveled with Wearing to the island of Jersey, in the English Channel, where Cahun lived and worked until her death, and where her archive is housed, In examining Cahun's photographs, Wearing was struck by the remarkable parallels with her own explorations of the self-image through photography. Cahun was a contemporary of André Breton and Man Ray, but her work was rarely exhibited during her lifetime. Wearing, who has exhibited extensively and is a recipient of Britain's prestigious Turner Prize, was no stranger to Cahun's work when she made the trip to Jersey -- her 2012 self-portrait, 'Me as Cahun holding a mask of my face', is a reconstruction of Cahun's iconic 'Self-portrait' made in 1927. In this book, Howgate examines the work of both artists, investigating how their cultural, historical, political, and personal contexts have affected their interpretations of similar themes."

Cézanne portraits by John Elderfield( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major new study of the portraiture of one of the most important artists of the nineteenth century. Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) may be best known for his landscapes, but he also painted some 160 portraits throughout his exceptional career. This major work establishes portraiture as an essential practice for Cezanne, from his earliest self-portraits in the 1860s; to his famous depictions of figures including his wife Hortense Fiquet, the writer Emile Zola, and the art dealer Ambrose Vollard; and concluding with a poignant series of portraits of his gardener Vallier, made shortly before Cezanne's death. Featured essays by leading experts explore the special pictorial and thematic characteristics of Cezanne's portraits. The authors address the artist's creation of complementary pairs and multiple versions of the same subject, as well as the role of self-portraiture for Cezanne. They investigate the chronological evolution of his portrait work, with an examination of the changes that occurred within his artistic style and method, and in his understanding of resemblance and identity. They also consider the extent to which particular sitters influenced the characteristics and development of Cezanne's practice

The Friend : I by Samuel Taylor Coleridge( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published originally in 1809-1810, The Friend was revised in 1812, by public demand. In 1818, a three-volume rifacimento appeared in which Coleridge attempted to dispel obscurity, tie up loose threads of reasoning, and provide more mature apercus. Now, in the Collected Works, The Friend has been re-edited to return to Coleridge's 1818 text. His emendations, cuts, and marginal comments noted in six copies of the work, as well as manuscript additions and deletions, have been included as footnotes. The editor's footnotes also elucidate sources and themes and provide translations of the many Latin and Greek passages. The entire periodical Friend is given as an appendix, with the 1812 revisions. Originally published in 1969. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions.
