Beyond the Word: Reconstructing Sense in the Joyce Era of Technology, Culture, and Communication

前表紙
University of Toronto Press, 1995 - 328 ページ
Beyond the Word provides as implicit critique of postmodernism, redefining it as a further, radical stage of modernism. Theall argues that Joyce anticipated many of the insights of semiotics, post-structuralism, and postmodernism. Moreover, Joyce and other modern artists differed from their predecessors in exhibiting a greater sense of their place within a dynamic, multifaceted field of communication. Thus, long before the emergence of postmodernism, these radical modernists posed an implicit challenge to the traditional notion of art as a privileged sphere. Beyond the Word situates artistic expression within a broad ecology of communication alongside genres such as comics, games, ads, videos, and slogans of spontaneous protest. Within this context, Theall reconsiders the contributions of Marshall McLuhan, Harold Innis, Gregory Bateson, and Kenneth Burke to our contemporary understanding of communication, and looks at artists as disparate as Dusan Makavejev, Stanley Kubrick, Alexander Pope, Rabelais, William Gibson, Gene Roddenberry, and Wyndham Lewis.
