By Philip Stewart

How do literary illustrations impact the best way we read—or extra subtly, what we learn? via a serious research of the function of engraving performed in eighteenth-century French literature, Philip Stewart grapples with this question. In either its technique and its conclusions, his venture marks a provocative departure from the culture of viewing illustrations as purely photographs, instead of as texts to be interpreted themselves.
Focusing at the objectification of ladies through the “male gaze,” Stewart analyzes the varous ways that this masculine strength is at the same time represented and veiled: the fascination with ladies taking part in “male” roles, akin to infantrymen; the preponderance of voyeuristic photos of the bare girl physique; the transformation of male strength into antagonistic forces of nature that render girls helpless. additional, Stewart indicates how “indecent” engravings that speculated to attempt the bounds of eighteenth-century morality usually in simple terms bolstered triumphing photographs of women.
Addressing serious matters concerning the societal enforcement of gender roles in literature besides crucial questions on the functionality of representation, Engraven Desire presents staggering perception into the culturally conditioned act of studying. Stewart’s paintings, itself richly illustrated with hundreds and hundreds of arresting reproductions, makes an important contribution to our realizing of the interaction of artwork, literature, and society.
