Description
&"Concerned with the rhetorical dimensions of art writing, Elkins identifies the ways in which immediate questions about the truth of interpretation are inevitably deflected by awareness of the stylistic qualities of art historians&' texts. . . . Wildly imaginative at making connections, his highly original book inevitably will be one necessary starting point for all future discussion.&" &-David Carrier, Carnegie Mellon University
