Self-conscious Art: A Tribute to John W. Kronik

Front Cover
Susan L. Fischer, John W. Kronik
Bucknell University Press, 1996 - Literary Criticism - 183 pages
Self-conscious art constitutes a significant and previously neglected feature of modern literature and is a crucial concern of contemporary criticism. The essays in this volume consider such questions as the limits of self-consciousness, the creative and circumstantial tensions that produce its various features, the ludic nature of art, the role of interpretation, and the aesthetic, social, and mythic reverberations of self-reflexive art.
