Rhetorical Aesthetics : Twentieth-Century Chinese Arts in the Context of Culture Hardback
by Wang Yichuan
Part of the Bridge21 Publications series
Rhetorical Aesthetics approaches Chinese art and literature from a novel perspective with special interest and influence in Chinese theory since the 1990s.
The author works out a practice of reading through fine literary, cinematic, and visual art examples. The monograph focuses on important literary texts from the 1950s onward, analyses Zhang Yimou's acclaimed early films, and proposes how to understand that much vaunted and maligned of attributes: Chinese creativity.
It surveys artistic production in ways that provide direct access to an entirely uncharted universe for those who cannot read Chinese.
