Excerpt from Salambo To those who like to impose upon life and the achievements of the human spirit the arbitrary pattern of a private logic, it must always seem strange that Madame Bovary should have preceded Salambo in the chronology of Flaubert's authorship. Surely, in the name of neatness, of psychology, their relative positions should have been reversed? Emma tried to escape from reality into romance and was brought to destruction. It would have been satisfying to know that Flaubert, profiting by his heroines example, had turned from the romantic to the actual, from Carthage to Normandy. But this is not what happened. Madame Bovary was published in 1857, Salambo in 1862. As the result of an enforced and prolonged intercourse with the spiritual squalor of the provincial middle-class (and a hatred of the middle-class of France was always a strong determining factor in his development as an artist) Flaubert turned to seek relief in the distant, the fantastic, the romantic. But unlike Emma's, his weakness for romance("Madame Bovary, c'est moi") was balanced by a passion for truth, by a craving for the accurately actual. For her, romance meant a smoothing away of sharp edges, a blurring of clear vision. Its charm, for him, lay in distance and difference. By saturating himself in the atmosphere of Carthage between the first and second Punic Wars, he could forget the French of Louis Philippe and Napoleon III, but he would have nothing to do with sentimental glosses. Distance, so far as he was concerned, lent not enchantment but remoteness to the view, and he set himself the task of giving to his imagined scene the highest degree of actuality with which research could furnish him.

The Ancients And The Postmoderns

Fredric Jameson sweeps from the Renaissance to The Wire High modernism is now as far from us as antiquity was for the Renaissance. Such is the premise of Fredric Jameson’s major new work in which modernist works, this time in painting (Rubens) and music (Wagner and Mahler), are pitted against late-modernist ones (in film) as well as a variety of postmodern experiments (from SF to The Wire, from “Eurotrash” in opera to Altman and East German literature): all of which attempt, in their different ways, to invent new forms to grasp a specific social totality. Throughout the historical periods, argues Jameson, the question of narrative persists through its multiple formal changes and metamorphoses.

"Iampolski deals with concepts and ideas that are highly complex and frequently very abstract, yet his discussion—and the progression of his analyses—is always precise and easy to follow. . . . Each of his points is grounded in a careful examination of a specific text, and most of the texts are well-known to American audiences."—Vladimir Padunov, University of Pittsburgh

A definitive and comprehensive survey of the work of one of America's best known and most acclaimed photographers. Renowned for his melancholic, dramatic, and painterly images of small-town America, Gregory Crewdson has evolved over a near thirty-year career into one of the world's most acclaimed and recognizable photographers. With a meticulous approach that has been likened to that of a film director, Crewdson typically works with a large crew and extremely technical sets to achieve a remarkably deep, atmospheric, and textured perspective. The mood of his images is unique, with a palette of twilights and mid-tones that complements a range of locations and models that create a vision of America at once familiar and haunting, bizarre and reassuring--his vision seems in line with those of Edward Hopper and David Lynch. Collected here together for the first time are every image from each of his many series of work, presented in chronological sequence from his earliest work and the little-seen black-and-white images of Fireflies to more recent masterpieces such as Beneath the Roses and Sanctuary. With a running narrative of short stories written specially to accompany each series by fellow Brooklynite Jonathan Lethem, an introduction by the Chief Curator of the Guggenheim Nancy Spector, and an interview between Melissa Harris and the photographer focusing on his unique process and elaborate techniques, this is the definitive monograph on the work of a true master of contemporary photography.
