9780521815055: Manet, Flaubert, and the Emergence of Modernism: Blurring Genre Boundaries (Cambridge Studies in New Art History and Criticism)

This study combines art history and literary criticism in a joint study of the canonical "fathers" of modernism. Arden Reed argues that modernism is a matter of genre blending, hybridization and movements between text and image. Focusing on key works, Reed reveals how Manet and Flaubert actively mix and contaminate their work- Flaubert with images, Manet with narration. Reed extends the argument to the twentieth century, claiming we cannot understand twentieth century modernism while remaining locked within single disciplines.

Focusing on key works, Reed shows how Manet and Flaubert actively mix and contaminate their work: Flaubert with images, Manet with narration. Reed extends the argument to the twentieth century, claiming we cannot understand twentieth century modernism so long as we remain locked within single disciplines.

Review:


"...this book is a superbly executed 'thick description' of Manet's controversial salon painting Jeune dame en 1866, a work presented with palpable affection by Reed as key to the aesthetic debates of late nineteenth-century France."
L'Esprit Createurs

"This volume is beautiful in its appearance and interesting in its creation of a dialogue between Manet's and Flaubert's dialogic techniques. Through the analysis and comparison of a Manet painting and two Flaubert stories, Reed revises Greenberg's theory of modernism, which claims that painting and literature aim each to expel the other. Rather, Reed argues that Manet and Flaubert allow text and image to converse in their works...Reed's study is admirablyi nformed by prvious work on Flaubert and Manet, by theory, and by works' historical and cultural contexts." - Dorothy Kelly, Boston University

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. 260 x 182 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Manet, Flaubert and the Emergence of Modernism weaves together art history and literary criticism in a joint study of the canonical fathers of modernism. In this work, Arden Reed contests the Greenbergian view that equates modernism with purity of formal means. Modernism, he argues, is a matter of genre bending, hybridization, as well as movements between text and image. Focusing on key works by Manet and Flaubert, Reed articulates a novel understanding of the cultural imagination of early modernism. He shows how Manet and Flaubert actively mix and contaminate their work: Flaubert with images, Manet with narration. Moreover, Reed extends the argument to the twentieth century, claiming we cannot understand twentieth century modernism so long as we remain locked within single disciplines.
