The approaching millennium is impossible to ignore. The end of each century in Western history has brought with it conflicting feelings of hope and anxiety, expression and repression, continuity and change, emerging as the focus of art and literature. This book examines the hidden meanings located in the images of women, men, sexuality , despair and death, concentrating on the art of the late 19th-century, to help us attain a better understandings of our own impending fin de siecle. Other work by the author includes "Chagall" and "The Image of the Actor: verbal and visual representation in the Age of Garrick and Kemble".show more
