Description
Moving deftly among literary and visual arts as well as the modern critical canon, Christopher Prendergast's book explores representation as both a philosophical challenge (What does it mean to create an image that "stands for" something absent?) and a political issue (Who has the right to represent whom?).

The essays present subtle readings of cultural critics from Raymond Williams to Edward Said, and of artists including Proust and Matisse. Above all, Prendergast's work is a striking display of how a firm grounding in theory is essential for the exploration of art and literature.
