The World of the Image
Trudy Smoke · Alan Robbins

LONGMAN TOPICS are brief, thought-provoking readers on a single complex, compelling, topic. Featuring about 30 full-length reading selections, these volumes are generally half the size and half the cost of standard composition readers.


Everywhere we look in today’s world, images are pervasive; we are immersed in a world of images–and we are relying more and more on images to understand ourselves and our world. The World of the Image, by Alan Robbins and Trudy Smoke, explores our reliance on images and the tools of analysis and description that we have to understand what we see.


Features
  • Ch. 1, The Act of Seeing, explores the mysteries of vision itself and will provide students with new respect for the delicate process of seeing and insight into how we make sense of a visual world.
  • Ch. 2, Mirroring Ourselves, explores notions of beauty, health, body decoration, and identity.
  • Ch. 3, The Visual Surround, looks at the impact of images on us as citizens and consumers.
  • Ch. 4, Images and Their Uses, provides insight into the wide range of uses to which images have been put throughout history, from cave paintings to dream-based art.
  • Ch. 5, Pictures That Prod, shows how images can change our behavior.
  • Ch. 6, The Image As Reality, addresses the slippery distinction between images and reality.
  • All chapters provide opening quotations, introductions, biographical data about each writer, and writing and discussion prompts that both precede (Getting Started) and close each reading.
  • Making Connections sections end each chapter and encourage students to find links among the readings.
