Mae’n canolbwyntio ar brosesau meddwl awduron a’r modd y mae darllenwyr yn ymateb yn weledol ynghyd ag archwilio’r testun llenyddol ac anllenyddol, drwy ymdrin ag ysgrifau gan ysgolheigion ym maes llenyddiaeth, sgrin ac astudiaethau gweledol. Blaenoriaethir cynnyrch llenyddol Ffrengig o’r bedwaredd ganrif ar bymtheg a’r ugeinfed ganrif.

Dyfyniadau

"How do writers think visually? How do readers respond visually to the written word? This exciting volume offers fresh insights within the rapidly evolving field of visual culture studies by pinpointing an important but as of yet underdeveloped area: the visuality of text. Drawing on a wide spectrum of practices, each affording a compelling instance of cross-fertilization between the written and the visual, the volume assembles wonderful close readings of important experimental works. Twelve international experts show how canonical creators have been inspired by thinking between the written word and a range of visual phenomena related to photography, textile, cinema, television, sculpture, painting, portraits, Isotype symbols, colors, lights, and black holes. "The Art of the Text "deserves a place on the bookshelves of anyone interested in intermedial adventure."--Shirley Jordan, Queen Mary, University of London
