Laocoon: An Essay on the Limits of Painting and Poetry
Johns Hopkins University Press, 1984 - 259 Seiten
Originally published in 1766, the "Laocoon" has been called the first modern attempt to define the distinctive spheres of art and poetry, and its author, Lessing, the first modern esthetician. Lessing invented the modern concept of the artistic medium and modernist assumptions of the uniqueness of the individual arts. A new Foreword by Michael Fried emphasizes Lessing's current importance regarding trends in art history and literary theory. (Philosophy)
