Aesthetics : An Introduction to the Philosophy of Art, Paperback

Aesthetics : An Introduction to the Philosophy of Art Paperback

Part of the OPUS series


This book provides an accessible introduction to aesthetics, especially in relation to literature, and is particularly useful for readers new to literary theory and contemporary philosophy.

Anne Sheppard discusses what it is that all works of art have in common - what gives them their value as art - and asks, wisely, whether there can ever be one correct interpretation of a work of art.

The scope of the book includes chapters on form, beauty and aesthetic appreciation, and the relationship between art and morals.
