Críticas:

"This is a significant and substantial book about a figure of major importance in the history of avant-garde poetry, culture, and the arts. Combining substantive research with highly refined and original arguments about Mallarme's work and its relationship to mass culture, The Book as Instrument expertly discusses how book culture came into being in fin-de-siecle France. Filled with rock-solid scholarship, Anna Sigridur Arnar's analysis uncovers in lucid, descriptive prose a cultural history that has long been bracketed out of most discussions. Delightful, engaging, and impressive, this book will be important to literary scholars, art historians, and students of book history alike." --Johanna Drucker, University of California, Los Angeles "This is a highly ambitious, original account of Stephane Mallarme's lifelong engagement with the book and the vast network of forces (cultural, aesthetic, political) that both informed this engagement and were transformed by it. Anna Sigridur Arnar seamlessly brings together divergent areas of inquiry in order to support the idea that the book was and remains a site of numerous debates about democracy, public and private space, the uses of art and print, and the role of authors and readers. The Book as Instrument is elegantly written, in engaging and highly readable prose. Arnar succeeds in presenting and analyzing with remarkable lucidity ideas that many of us have learned to approach as difficult and thus nearly off-limits. This will be an important work of scholarship for a variety of disciplines." --Willa Z.

Reseña del editor:

Stephane Mallarme (1842-98) was a French Symbolist poet, theorist, and teacher whose ideas and legendary salons set the stage for twentieth-century experimentation in poetry, music, theater, and art. A canonical figure in the legacy of modernism, Mallarme was also a lifelong champion of the book as both a literary endeavor and a carefully crafted material object. In "The Book as Instrument", Anna Sigridur Arnar explores how this object functioned for Mallarme and his artistic circle, arguing that the book became a strategic site for encouraging a modern public to actively participate in the creative act, an idea that informed later twentieth-century developments such as conceptual and performance art. Arnar demonstrates that Mallarme was invested in creating radically empowering reading experiences, and the diverse modalities he proposed for both reading and looking anticipate interactive media prevalent in today's culture. In describing the world of books, visual culture, and mass media of the late nineteenth century, Arnar touches upon an array of themes that continue to preoccupy us in our own moment, including speculations on the future of the book. Enhanced by gorgeous illustrations, "The Book as Instrument" is sure to fascinate anyone interested in the ever-vibrant experiment between word and image that makes the page and the multi-sensory pleasures of reading.
