Description

Emotion and the Seduction of the Senses,Baroque to Neo-Baroque examines therelationship between the culturalproductions of the baroque in theseventeenth century and the neo-baroque inour contemporary world. It asks thequestion: "Is the baroque a recurringphenomenon that has returned in aspects ofcontemporary global culture, or is itsomething specific to the early modernperiod?" It argues one of the common andcentral features of both styles is their appealto emotion. This volume illuminates how,rather than providing rationally orderedvisual realms, both the baroque and the neo-baroque construct complex performativespaces whose spectacle seeks to embrace,immerse, and seduce the senses and solicitthe emotions of the beholder.
