              Michael Baxandall, Vision and the Work of Words

              Michael Baxandall, Vision and the Work of Words (Hardback, Festschrift)

              By Mack, Peter; Williams, Robert; Series edited by Woodfield, Professor Richard

              'The most important art historian of his generation' is how some scholars have described the late Michael Baxandall (1933-2007), Professor of the Classical Tradition at the Warburg Institute, University of London, and of the History of Art at the University of California, Berkele...y. Baxandall's work had a transformative effect on the study of European Renaissance and eighteenth-century art, and contributed to a complex transition in the aims and methods of art history in general during the 1970s, '80s and '90s. While influential, he was also an especially subtle and independent thinker - occasionally a controversial one - and many of the implications of his work have yet to be fully understood and assimilated. This collection of 10 essays endeavors to assess the nature of Baxandall's achievement, and in particular to address the issue of the challenges it offers to the practice of art history today. This volume provides the most comprehensive assessment of Baxandall's work to date, while drawing upon the archive of Baxandall papers recently deposited at the Cambridge University Library and the Warburg Institute.

              Seduction can be a useful tool for giving pleasure and to secure love, money and power. In the wrong hands, especially those of a young woman who has not yet learned to use the power of seductions with purpose, this gift can cause a great amount of pain and heartache.Ayana Cherry... soon learns that her new home in a quiet wealthy suburb of Indianapolis has just as many opportunities for sexual intrigue and deception as the raw streets of Los Angeles. She never imagined that she would be exposed to a secret world of strippers and pimps, and the lies, infidelity, and voyeuristic lust of the family and otherwise respectable neighbors she'd at first believed were simple squares living the good life. Realizing her natural powers of seduction in this place of sexual decorum could cost her more than she can handle.

              Rhetoric's Questions, Reading and Interpretation
                

              Rhetoric's Questions, Reading and Interpretation (Hardback, 1st ed. 2017)

              This book aims to help readers interpret, and reflect on, their reading more effectively. It presents doctrines of ancient and renaissance rhetoric (an education in how to write well) as questions or categories for interpreting one's reading. The first chapter presents the questi...ons. Later chapters use rhetorical theory to bring out the implications of, and suggest possible answers to, the questions: about occasion and audience (chapter 2), structure and disposition (3), narrative (4), argument (5), further elements of content, such as descriptions, comparisons, proverbs and moral axioms, dialogue, and examples (6), and style (7). Chapter eight describes ways of gathering material, formulating arguments and writing about the texts one reads. The conclusion considers the wider implications of taking a rhetorical approach to reading. The investigation of rhetoric's questions is interspersed with analyses of texts by Chaucer, Sidney, Shakespeare, Fielding and Rushdie, using the questions. The text is intended for university students of literature, especially English literature, and rhetoric, and their teachers.
