The essays in this collection, which were written by European and North American specialists, position intermediality as a praxis of interpretative analysis in order to show how intermediality challenges our notion of art. The writers examine the various intermedial relations between the arts, which may take the form of reference to another form of art, a combination of two or more forms of art or a generic transformation from one form of art to another. In such cases an intermedial approach helps us to grasp the changing relation between the arts, which affects our reception of experience. Intermediality has profoundly changed our understanding of interdisciplinary relations, formerly examined in the field of interart studies. By introducing a medial aspect, intermediality has succeeded in making a leap from past practices of artistic interrelatedness to our contemporary medial age, in which literature along with other arts may be understood as a medium. This ambitious undertaking has contributed to the liberation of literature and other arts from an isolated position in the established scholarly landscape with its clear-cut borderlines between disciplines. The essays of this collection are a valuable contribution to this on-going discussion about the relations between the arts. The variety of essays published in this collection makes it an excellent introduction to academics and university students in such disciplines as literature, music, theatre, art history and media studies. Due to its clarity - which does not sacrifice philosophical depth concerning the role of intermedial studies for several forms of art - this book is also of interest to those academics and students who are currently working at advanced level art schools.

"With a Finnish editor, French and German co-editors, Scandinavian and Franco-Canadian contributors, and an English publishing house, Intermedial Arts bears witness to the by now international character of intermediality studies, which "first spread in research published in Germany".Upholding the much deplored literary bias of that research, the volume provides a fair sample of work on the "relations between literature and the visual arts (and to some extent also music)" [...] Its strengths lie in analyses of the well-studied configurations of text and image in ekphrastic writing or works that combine verbal and visual representations." - Guido Isekenmeier, Anglia 2013, 131 (2-3): 443-447
