Surrealist Masculinities: Gender Anxiety and the Aesthetics of Post-World War I Reconstruction in France (Hardback)
Language: English . Brand New Book. Surrealist Masculinities offers a fresh exploration of how surrealist visual production was shaped by constructions of gender and sexuality, particularly masculinity, in the 1920s and early 1930s. Amy Lyford builds on feminist critical approaches to surrealism, which have viewed the female body in surrealism as symptomatic of male misogyny; yet she also departs from such work by arguing that representations of an anxious, ambivalent, or perverse masculinity were integral to the movement s critique of France s return to order in the years following World War I. This book analyzes surrealist work in relation to the history of surrealism and investigates how surrealist artists and writers appropriated contemporary medical science, advertising, and sexology in their quest to undermine the status quo.

A propos du livre :
Critique: "Lyford demonstrates the subtle interpretation needed to navigate the complexities raised by issues of masculinity within Surrealism." -- Robert Radford Burlington Magazine 20081201 "Tight, richly documented, and does an excellent job of interweaving image, text, and context, no easy task... Lyford has done a remarkable job of demonstrating how complicated surrealism's relationship was to all forms of normative masculinity." -- Carolyn J. Dean H-France Reviews 20090301
