Ut pictura poesis Horace said, but through the two millennia in which the sister arts have been compared, little has been said about the nature of sight itself. What we see in our mind's eye as we read has not been explored, though by following the visual prompts in texts, one can anatomize the process of visualization.

Produktbeschreibung
Ut pictura poesis Horace said, but through the two millennia in which the sister arts have been compared, little has been said about the nature of sight itself. What we see in our mind's eye as we read has not been explored, though by following the visual prompts in texts, one can anatomize the process of visualization. The Poetics of Sight analyses the role of sight in memory, dream and popular culture and demonstrates the structure of a complex sight within the metaphors of Shakespeare, Pope and Dickens; and within the visual metaphors of Picasso, Magritte and Bacon. This book explores the difference between the great and the failed works of the supreme poet-painter, William Blake, and tracks the migrations of the Satiric muse between verbal mockery and scabrous images in Persius, Pope, Gillray and Gogol. It records the rise, and partial decline, of the vividly seen novel in Dickens, Flaubert, Tolstoy, Proust and Hardy. The key concept throughout this book is visual metaphor, which in the twentieth century acquired overarching importance: in art from Picasso to Kapoor, in poetry from Eliot to Hughes, in aesthetics from Pound to Derrida. The book closes with a far-reaching definition of visual metaphor and with the great visual metaphor of the human body.

Rezensionen
"Anyone who reads this book will read differently afterwards."
(Jane Partner, Cambridge Quarterly, 4/2016)

"I particularly liked Harvey's ability to argue his case in lucid, elegant prose [...] and there's his usual mastery of prose rhythm and the well-turned sentence to express his argument with considered authority. His scholarship is judiciously deployed. [...] I commend this book: it'll change the way you read."
(Simon Lavery, Tredynas Days, 1 June 2015)

"This book contains valuable insights into literary texts [...]."
(Ivan Gaskell, Essays in Criticism, Vol. 67, No. 1/2017)

"John Harvey's The Poetics of Sight (2015) is an accomplished and lucid exploration of the multifaceted relationship between visual images and the written word."
(Jorge L. Contreras, PRS Review, Volume XXIV, Number 1/2016)
