about this item
This book seeks to work out literature’s active role in shaping visual culture, thus demonstrating its relevance for “image studies” and emphasizing its participation in visual culture beyond its interaction with visual media. The essays focus on description, reader response and the materiality of literature. The aim of this volume is to offer a systematic approach to these issues as well as to contribute to a literary history of visual culture.
