Forlagets beskrivelse

Baudelaire's Media Aesthetics situates Charles Baudelaire in the midst of 19th-century media culture. It offers a thorough study of the role of newspapers, photography, and precinematic devices in Baudelaire's writings, while also discussing the cultural history of these media generally. The book reveals that Baudelaire was not merely inspired by the new media, but that he played with them, using them as frames of perception and ways of experiencing the world. His writings demonstrate how different media respond to one another and how the conventions of one medium can be paraphrased in another medium. Accordingly, Baudelaire's Media Aesthetics argues that Baudelaire should be seen merely as an advocate of ?pure poetry,? but as a poet in a media saturated environment. It shows that mediation, montage, and movement are features that are central to Baudelaire's aesthetics and that his modernist aesthetics can be conceived of, to a large degree, as a media aesthetics.

Highlighting Baudelaire's interaction with the media of his age, Baudelaire's Media Aesthetics discusses the ways in which we respond to new media technology, drawing on perspectives from Walter Benjamin and Giorgio Agamben. Combining detailed research with contemporary theory, the book opens up new perspectives on Baudelaire's writings, the figure of the fl?neur, and modernist aesthetics.

Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
"Baudelaire's Media Aesthetics situates Charles Baudelaire in the midst of 19th-century media culture. It offers a thorough study of the role of newspapers, photography, and pre-cinematic devices in Baudelaire's writings, while also discussing the cultural history of these media generally. Whereas Baudelaire is often seen as an advocate of "art for art's sake" and an enemy of the mechanical arts, this book reveals that Baudelaire's aesthetics was inspired by 19th-century media technology. It argues that Baudelaire played with the new forms of perception emerging in the media age, using them as frames of perception and ways of experiencing the world. Highlighting Baudelaire's interaction with the media in his age, this study also addresses the ways in which we respond to new media technology, drawing on perspectives from Walter Benjamin and Giorgio Agamben. Baudelaire's Media Aesthetics bridges the gap between literary and visual studies by introducing perspectives from media, visual and cinema studies inthe reading of Baudelaire. Combining detailed research with contemporary theory, it opens up new perspectives on Baudelaire's writings, the figure of the fl?aneur, and modernist aesthetics"--
