"These sixteen essays by Arnold Isenberg "bring wide-ranging connoiseurship, intricate analysis, and epigrammatic literacy to bear on a number of glib and fuzzy oppositions between form and content, description and interpretation, perception and meaning, technique and substance, and belief and expression, articulating provocative strategies for illuminating the canon of the arts and the organ of criticism. . . . Any thoughtful lover of the arts could read this book with profit and inspiration."--ChoiceIsenberg, Arnold is the author of 'Aesthetics and the Theory of Criticism Selected Essays' with ISBN 9780226385129 and ISBN 0226385124.
