Summary: "Excellent study of image of women in 19th century art and general cultural attitudes during that period."--James Doan, Nova University"An excellent book for an undergraduate seminar--sparks lively interest and discussion."--Edward Dickinson, University of California, Berkeley"Brilliant analysis, brilliant command of language."--Pauley M. Stein, California State University"[An] excellent book!"--John Murray, New York Institute of Technology"Dijkstra''s straightforward discussion of misogyny in nineteenth-century art is long overdue. His thematic groupings of subject matter cut across lines of academic versus avant-garde, which is very instructive for students to see."--F. Connelly, University of Missouri"A provocative and absorbing book."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times"This pioneering, witty, devastating survey breaks new ground in tracing men''s hatred toward women and how this fear and loathing has shaped our culture."--Publishers Weekly"[Dijkstra is] more than equal to the task of analyzing the cultural war waged on women at the turn of the century.[Readers] will not be able to forget [his] message, so applicable to the end of our century--that ideological dualisms, whether about sex or race, are also deadly."--Alessandra Comini, The New York Times Book Review"A stupendous work--deeply serious, wildly delightful, abounding in new learning and insights."--Rudolph Binion, Journal of Psychohistory"A ground-breaking, important book.Will clearly be important to art historians and feminist critics of the late nineteenth century."--Susan Gubar, The Washington Times Magazine"[A] witty and rewarding study of the ''iconography of misogyny'' in late nineteenth-century culture."--Elaine Showalter, The New Republic"A wonderfully compelling, original and lucid revelation of the labyrinth of modern sexuality and culture."--Catharine R.

He translates critical jargon into informal nuggets we can remember and use."--Sally Mitchell, The Philadelphia Inquirer"Utterly fascinating.In this profusely illustrated volume, Dijkstra.documents a virulent misogyny that infected the arts in turn-of-the-century Europe and America."--Michael S. Kimmel, Psychology Today"Thoroughly engrossing.A monumental, and monumentally persuasive, study that cannot be ignored."--Mary Rose Sullivan, San Diego Magazine"Dijkstra is exhilarating when he gets down to description and denunciation.[His book] is great fun to read."--Los Angeles Times"Exhaustively documented.A monumental labor of profound significance.

Item Description: Oxford University Press, New York, 1988. Paperbound small 4to (about 10 inches tall) 453 pages. Bibliography, sources and credits, index. Description: Well illustrated in black and white. Following is taken from the author's preface: ''This is a book filled with the dangerous fantasies of the Beautiful People of a century ago. It contains a few scenes of exemplary virtue and many more of lurid sin. Much of it deals with magnificent dreams of intellectual achievement doomed to wither before the tempting presence of woman, who throughout these pages, is to be found dragging man into a grim trough of perversion. In short, this book is about what and how, during the second half of the nineteenth century, men came to think about women -- and why.'' Originally published in hardcover in 1986. BINDING/CONDITION: an oversize paperback; Good condition. ISBN: 0-19-505652-3. Bookseller Inventory # 060723

Item Description: Knopf, 1996. hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st Edition. New York. 1996. Knopf. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 480 pages. hardcover. Cover: Edward Steichen. 0394569458. keywords: Literature Culture Gender Literary Criticism. inventory # 22932. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Beginning with ‘vamp’ Theda Bara's 1915 silent-film debut in A Fool There Was, Dijkstra (Idols of Perversity), writing with passionate feminist scholarship, decodes images of women as predators, destroyers and vultures who deplete civilized males of their creative energies. He unmasks predatory females in Hemingway, H.L. Mencken, Elinor Glyn's bestselling 1907 potboiler Three Weeks, and unravels the sexist assumptions of sociologist Emile Durkheim, sexologist Havelock Ellis and philosopher of love Remy de Gourmont. Shuttling between high and popular culture, Dijkstra argues that antifeminine, racist and imperialist attitudes merge in Conrad's Heart of Darkness, Fitzgerald's The Beautiful and the Damned, in Kipling, Edgar Rice Burroughs, H. Rider Haggard, in Jung's psychology of unchanging archetypes, in the social Darwinist teachings of Herbert Spencer and William Graham Sumner. Finally, he traces a trajectory of fantasies involving men attaining supermale status from Nietzsche to Ezra Pound and Hitler. His conviction that sexist imagery, codified around 1900, still dominates the popular imagination informs this brilliant, often startling study. Bookseller Inventory # 22932

Item Description: Oxford University Press, New York and Oxford, 1986. Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. xi, 453 pp., illus., biblio., index; 27 cm. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Age toning. "In the years around 1900, an unprecendented attack on women erupted in virtually every aspect of culture: literary, artistic, scientific, and philosophic. Many of the anti-feminine platitudes that today still constrain women's potential were first formulated during this period, as intellectuals of every stripe throughout Europe and America banded together to picture women as static and unindividuated beings whose sole function was sexual and reproductive . Reproducing hundreds of pictures from the period and including in-depth discussions of such key works as Dracula and Venus in Furs, this fascinating book not only exposes the crucial links between misogyny then and now but connects it to the racism and anti-semitism that led to catastrophic genocidal delusions in the first half of the twentieth century. Crossing the conventional boundaries of art history, sociology, the history of scientific theory, and literary analysis, Dijkstra unveils a startling view of women--a war whose battles are still being fought. / Bram Dijkstra is Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of California, San Diego, and author of The Hieroglyphics of a New Speech, A Recognizable Image, and other works on literature and the visual arts." - Publisher.
