Críticas: ."..this is the definitive literary history of a planet that has long been prospected by the human imagination, whatever the possibilities of actual settlement there."--Patrick Parinder, The British Society for Literature and Science Web Reviews The Wall Street Journal" College and Research Library News" The British Society for Literature and Science Web Reviews" Extrapolation" Robert Crossley's magnificent survey 'Imagining Mars: A Literary History' reminds us why the Red Planet has been the dominant orb, after Earth itself, in the science-fiction imagination.--Tom Shippey "The Wall Street Journal" (2/26/2011 12:00:00 AM) Robert Crossley examines the interplay between speculative fiction and scientific knowledge about Mars throughout history, from the age of the earliest telescopes to NASA's recent orbiters and rovers.--George M.

It will resonate primarily with readers and scholars of sf and popular science, but it is written in accessible language and will appeal to anybody interested in the cultural history of the west. ...Crossley clearly cares about this material on a personal and professional level, and it shows in the writing. Over ten years in the making, the book is a fitting climax to a long career of impeccable scholarship."--D.

Descripción University Press of New England, United States, 2011. Hardback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For centuries, the planet Mars has captivated astronomers and inspired writers of all genres. Whether imagined as the symbol of the bloody god of war, the cradle of an alien species, or a possible new home for human civilization, our closest planetary neighbor has played a central role in how we think about ourselves in the universe. From Galileo to Kim Stanley Robinson, Robert Crossley traces the history of our fascination with the red planet as it has evolved in literature both fictional and scientific. Crossley focuses specifically on the interplay between scientific discovery and literary invention, exploring how writers throughout the ages have tried to assimilate or resist new planetary knowledge. Covering texts from the 1600s to the present, from the obscure to the classic, Crossley shows how writing about Mars has reflected the desires and social controversies of each era. This astute and elegant study is perfect for science fiction fans and readers of popular science. Nº de ref. del artículo: FLT9780819569271
