Synopsis: Examining the relationship between German poetry, philosophy, and visual media around 1900, Carsten Strathausen argues that the poetic works of Rainer Maria Rilke, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, and Stephan George focused on the visible gestalt of language as a means of competing aesthetically with the increasing popularity and "reality effect" of photography and film.

Poetry around 1900 self-reflectively celebrated its own words as both transparent signs and material objects, Strathausen says. In Aestheticism, this means that language harbors the potential to literally present the things it signifies. Rather than simply describing or picturing the physical experience of looking, as critics have commonly maintained, modernist poetry claims to enable a more profound kind of perception that grants intuitive insights into the very texture of the natural world.

Book Description: " The Look of Things provides a vivid, lucid account of the intellectual-historical contexts of visual aesthetics as embodied in the poem and in poetic prose, from Stefan George's Teppich des Lebens to Rainer Maria Rilke's poetry and Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge. Strathausen's analysis demonstrates the emergence of pre-cinematic modes of perception in literary language and brings the reader into the eye of the social, aesthetic, and intellectual storm of German modernity in the early twentieth century."--Neil H. Donahue, author of Forms of Disruption: Abstraction in Modern German Prose
