de Allison Levy
Sobre o livro
Recognizes a socio-cultural anxiety - the fear not merely of death but also of being forgotten - and identifies a set of pictorial, literary and theoretical strategies consequently formulated to ensure memory. This book re-configures our understanding of masculinity - from the early modern male body to 'Renaissance Man' to postmodern manhood.
