To Make the Hands Impure

Art, Ethical Adventure, the Difficult and the Holy

Adam Zachary Newton

A Fordham University Press Publication

"To Make the Hands Impure": Art and Ethical Adventure, the Difficult and the Holy proposes a wholly original model for the ethics of reading. With the image of the book lying in the hands of its readers as insistent refrain, this innovative and ambitious work explores "ethics" as a matter of readerly tact in the sense of both touch and regard.
