About this book


This is the first major collection of essays specifically to address the impact of visual technologies on the production of literature in the twentieth-century. Literature and Visual Technologies investigates the manifold effects which a visual century has wrought upon literary conventions. From the influence of Mutoscope parlours on Joyce's fiction, to the interrelation between Peter Greenaway's A TV Dante , the collection consists of an integrated series of high-level intellectual engagements with a hundred years of cultural revolution, and covers the whole twentieth-century, from silent to digital film.
