Sensual Reading: New Approaches to Reading in Its Relations to the Senses
Michael Syrotinski, Ian Maclachlan
Bucknell University Press, 2001 - Literary Collections - 350 pages
Sensual Reading is a collection of essays that attempts to rearticulate the relationship between reading and the different senses as a way of moving beyond increasingly homogenized discourses of the "body" and the "subject." Contributions engage with the individual senses, with the themes of sensory richness and sensory deprivation, and with the notion of "telesensuality."
