Painting Literature: Dostoevsky, Kafka, Pirandello, and García Márquez in Living Color

University Press of America, 1993 - 112 Seiten
This book aims at extending artistic methods and terminology to the realm of literature. Pedoto primarily explores four important painting techniques: chiaroscuro, sfumato, incollato, and impasto. She demonstrates how they are used to paint selected literary masterpieces and illustrates the process of creation and the continual challenge to the reader's sense of "actuality." Contents: Introduction; Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment and Notes from Underground through Chiaroscuro and High Renaissance/Baroque Period; Franz Kafka's The Castle and "The Metamorphosis" through Sfumato and Leonardo da Vinci; Luigi Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author and Liola through Incollato and Picasso's Cubism; Gabriel GarcÌa M-rquez's The Autumn of the Patriarch and "The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World" through Impasto and French Impressionism; Conclusion.
