Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. This unique book explores how the aesthetic and cultural movement Steampunk persuades audiences and wins new acolytes. Steampunk is an aesthetic style grounded in the Victorian era, in clothing and accoutrements modeled on a heightened and hyper-extended age of steam. In addition to its modeling of attire and other symbolic trappings, what is most distinctive is its adherents use of a machined aesthetic based on steam engines and early electrical machinery: gears, pistons, shafts, wheels, induction motors, clockwork and so forth. The aesthetic was first articulated in literature in the works of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells. The American West later contributed images to the aesthetic--revolvers, locomotives, and rifles of the late nineteenth century. Among young people steampunk has found common aesthetic cause with Goth style. Examples from literature and popular culture include William Gibson s fiction, China Mieville s novels, the classic film Metropolis, and the BBC series Doctor Who. This volume recognizes that steampunk, a unique popular culture phenomenon, presents a prime opportunity for rhetorical criticism. Steampunk s art, style, and narratives convey complex social and political meanings. Chapters in Clockwork Rhetoric explore topics ranging from jewelry to Japanese anime to contemporary imperialism to fashion. Throughout, the book demonstrates how language influences consumers of steampunk to hold certain social and political attitudes and commitments. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : This unique book explores how the aesthetic/cultural movement "Steampunk" persuades audiences through rhetoric. Steampunk is an aesthetic style grounded in the Victorian era, or the age of steam. It borrows the clothing and other symbolic trappings of that era, but what is most reliably distinctive is its use of a machine aesthetic based on steam engines and early electrical machinery: gears, pistons, shafts, wheels, induction motors, and so forth. The aesthetic was first articulated in literature during that period in the works of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells. The American West has contributed images to the aesthetic, many of them grounded in the revolvers, locomotives, and rifles of the second half of the nineteenth century. It has found common aesthetic cause with Goth style among young people. Examples from literature and popular culture include William Gibson's fiction, China Miéville's novels, the classic film Metropolis, and the BBC series Doctor Who. Steampunk, is a unique popular culture phenomenon; it is also a unique opportunity for rhetorical criticism. Steampunk's art, style, and narratives convey complex social and political meanings. These chapters explore topics ranging widely from jewelry to Japanese anime to contemporary imperialism to fashion. Mainly, the book addresses how consumers of steampunk are influenced to have certain social, political attitudes and commitments.

Critique: "I loved the book! "Clockwork Rhetoric" is one of the finest evaluations yet written on steampunk style. The many contributors do an excellent job of establishing the myriad languages of steampunk (or is it only one?), from the seen aesthetics of fashion and film to its literary evaluations of the social and sexual. I found myself constantly rethinking the definition of Machine--both the ones we create physically as well as the ones we construct socially. "Clockwork Rhetoric" is a brilliant addition to an ever-evolving genre. More like this!"-Brent Glenn, Emory University
