This book addresses the function and status of the visual and verbal image as it relates to social, political, and ideological issues. The authors first articulate some of the lost connections between image and ideology, then locate their argument within the modernist/postmodernist debates. The book addresses the multiple, trans-disciplinary problems arising from the ways cultures, authors, and texts mobilize particular images in order to confront, conceal, work through, or resolve contradictory ideological conditions.

Susan Bazargan is Associate Professor of English at Eastern Illinois University. They are both editors of Works and Days: Essays in the Socio-Historical Dimensions of Literature and the Arts.

Review:

“This book addresses a serious and ‘hot’ issue in culture studies. While it has been said that postmodern culture is ‘dominated by images,’ not much has been said about image and ideology, whereas much has been said about language and ideology. The topic of visual art and visuality in writing is obviously important. These essays fill this gap in the current published scholarship.” ― David Shumway, Carnegie Mellon University
