The Aesthetics of Mimesis:
Ancient Texts and Modern Problems
Stephen Halliwell

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"We have not seen a comprehensive study of the classical concepts of mimesis, nor has anyone shown the place of mimesis in the history of aesthetics, nor has anyone argued generally for the usefulness of the concept to contemporary theory. Art and philosophy in the twentieth century were hostile to the idea that art is mimesis, and ancient Greek theories have seemed quaint to modern eyes. Halliwell may, through this book, be on the cutting edge of a revolution in thinking."--Paul Woodruff, University of Texas, Austin
