Reading Images, Paperback / softback Book

Reading Images Paperback / softback

Part of the Readers in Cultural Criticism series


Is seeing a matter of nature? Does perspective show things as they really are? Can we read an image in the same way as a text? Reading Images draws together essays that attempt to answer these questions but in a variety of ways and from the different theoretical positions offered by psychoanalysis, semiotics, poststructuralism and postmodernism.

The anthology opens up a dialogue between seeing and the seen, text and image, theory and practice.

By discussing a range of visual material, from advertising and architecture to painting and photography, it crosses generic and disciplinary boundaries and suggests ways in which vision and visuality are related to questions of textuality, subjectivity, race and gender.
