A Moment of Joy: Essays on Art, Writing and Life
This book is for readers who are interested in literature, visual arts and writings about life. Most of the time, life itself, including personal ones and collective ones (such as nation, natural environment and so forth), gives incredible inspirations to the one who is writing. And yet, through more reading and more thinking, the writing self can imagine someone else’s way of living, as if he or she is living through it. This collection of essays brings literature and visual arts together, as their aesthetics come to complete each other.
A collection of essays that explores the intricate relationships between literature and art, bringing new insights into famous writers such as Henry James and Virginia Woolfe.
