"This book offers many literary occasions for thinking about the challenging and ever changing connections and disconnections of truth and beauty in their times and in their texts."
──Professor Rachel Bowlby, UCL
This book aims to be a guidance, showing a way of reading a literary text not only verbally but also visually. Through artistic terms and movements, the readers can see that a literary text can be enjoyed not only through the black words on the whitepapers. A solid and profound understanding of the visual arts can especially remind us how different and also, how difficult, when it comes to read a verbal painting.
For scholars, students, and also for people who are interested in the mutual development of visual and verbal narrative forms, this book is also innovative.
