Críticas:

"In Punctuation: Art, Politics, and Play, Jennifer DeVere Brody productively bridges both performance criticism and literary analysis through a consideration of punctuation. To be certain, this is a bold and innovative move that compels us to consider what is too often taken for granted: how punctuation performs. Brody's book is decidedly interdisciplinary, as she analyzes a diverse array of performance texts always mindful of the intersections of art, politics, and play. As a result, Brody brings important insight to issues of race, gender, and performance through this examination of punctuation. Punctuation: Art, Politics, and Play is a most ambitious and significant work that will certainly have a cross-disciplinary impact."--Harry J. Elam Jr., Olive H. Palmer Professor in the Humanities, Stanford University "Here is a book that earns the right to the spaces between its sumptuously smart words. Here is a book that pays attention to the 'minor' detail of punctuation in ways that percolate with questions pertaining to history, subject formation, ethnicity, racialization, technology, authorship, physiology, philosophy, aesthetic value, the social, the political, and more (to pile up the commas). Lacing her arguments with humor as well as insight, Jennifer DeVere Brody here tracks punctuation's contradictory performances across a number of times and places. She offers close readings of artists and authors who deploy punctuation pointedly in a variety of mediums, amplifying the mark of the mark, the score of the score, the thrust or lean of the emphaticals that prop our points. Here is a book that doubles as a stage upon which the understudied finally gets to strut and fret with an embodied wit, critical grace, and socially relevant verve."--Rebecca Schneider, Brown University This is the book that puts the "pun", not to mention the "punk", in "punctuation"...a book of spirited cultural criticism, not a monograph on linguistics. - Raphael Salkie, professor of language studies, University of Brighton

Reseña del editor:

In Punctuation: Art, Politics, and Play, the literary critic and performance studies scholar Jennifer DeVere Brody places punctuation centre stage. She illuminates the performative aspects of dots, ellipses, hyphens, quotation marks, semi-colons, colons, and exclamation points by considering them in relation to aesthetics and experimental art. Through her readings of texts, artworks, and symbols from style guides to digital art, and emotions to dance pieces, Brody suggests that instead of always clarifying meaning, punctuation can sometimes open up space for interpretation, enabling writers and visual artists to interrogate and reformulate notions of life, death, art, and identity politics. Brody provides a playful, erudite meditation on punctuation's power to direct discourse and, consequently, to shape human subjectivity. Her analysis ranges from a consideration of typography as a mode for representing black subjectivity in Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man to a reflection on hyphenation and identity politics in light of Strunk and White's prediction that the hyphen would disappear from written English. Ultimately, Brody takes punctuation off the "stage of the page" to examine visual and performance artists' experimentation with non-grammatical punctuation. She looks at different ways that punctuation performs as gesture in dances choreographed by Bill T. Jones, in the hybrid sculpture of Richard Artschwager, in the multimedia works of the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, and in Miranda July's film Me and You and Everyone We Know. Brody concludes with a reflection on the future of punctuation in the digital era.
