Poetry in Painting

Writings on Contemporary Arts and Aesthetics

edited by Marta Segarra, Joana Masó, and Hélène Cixous

Published by Edinburgh University Press

The first book by Hélène Cixous on painting and the contemporary arts. These 11 chapters bring together Hélène Cixous' writings about specific contemporary artists and artworks. Neither simply 'art criticism' nor critical essays, Cixous responds to these artworks as a poet, reading them as if they were poems.
