Description du produit

Revue de presse

Her erudition, the sharp clarity of her thinking, the variety of her sources and the supple ways in which she weaves them into personal narrative, coupled with her fearlessness in the face of those aspects of the human condition which are of necessity ambiguous, infuse her work with a rare kind of quiet intellectual confidence...I'll be returning to these essays. (Melanie McGrath, Sunday Telegraph)

richly intelligent insights on every page (George Pendle, Financial Times)

Siri Hustvedt is best known as a novelist and her novels have received a deserved acclaim. But to my mind, she is even more to be admired as an essayist...there is something refreshingly straightforward about her style. It has the confidence born of complex but well digested thoughts and thus lacks the tendency to obfuscate that is the hallmark of the inferior thinker's style. (Salley Vikcers, Observer)

...she is an inspiring guide to territory where both the humanities and the sciences can throw light on the ways in which we construct meaning in our lives. (Nick Rennison, Sunday Times, Culture)

Hustvedt addresses a broad public without dumbing down her material... At once stimulating and warm-hearted, with sentences of drop-dead beauty and acuity on nearly every page. (Kirkus)

Hustvedt's deep interest in art, psychology, and neuroscience shape her brilliantly insightful novels as well as her virtuoso essays...Mystery, fact, intelligence, and enchantment flourish here. (Booklist)

exquisitely eloquent...You'll be by turns inspired, provoked, educated and enchanted. Her writing is scientifically precise and poetically elegant, and this intense compilation merits careful attention. It's a book you can return to time and time again. (Beatrice Hodgkin, Easy Living)

These essays offer thoughts on locating morality in the brain, the origins of desire and who we are when we sleep...I suggest you take this book to your favourite corner, turn off the phone and allow yourself to be reminded of the pure pleasure of using your mind. (Clare Longrigg, Psychologies)

Présentation de l'éditeur

From the internationally bestselling author of What I Loved and The Summer Without Men, a dazzling collection of essays written with Siri Hustvedt's customary intelligence, wit and ability to convey complex ideas in a clear and lively way.

Divided into three sections - Living, which draws on Siri's own life; Thinking, on memory, emotion and the imagination; and Looking, on art and artists - the essays range across the humanities and science as Siri explores how we see, remember, feel and interact with others, what it means to sleep, dream and speak, and what we mean by 'self'. The combination offers a profound and fascinating insight into ourselves as thinking, feeling beings.

This book absolutely blew my mind...!
As a visual artist, voracious reader, and sometime writer, I had just about given up on finding intelligent writing outside of aesthetics or philosophy texts such as those of Susan Sontag. And those books tend to be rather dry... Yawn!... put you to sleep tomes. The kind of academic book you only read if you must, to be approached with fear and trepidation. And here is a writer who combines personal story with perceptive artistic critique - Wow! - and her writing is interesting, amusing and accessible to boot.

This is truly a first in the history of writing about contemporary art. Believe me, you don't need to have studied Art History to understand "Living, Thinking, Looking." If you've ever been to a contemporary art museum and pondered the meaning of some of the wild artworks there, Siri's essays are a behind the scenes peek at the ideas at work, combined with glimpses of her personal struggles. For me, a book to keep and treasure. If thinking about art appeals to you - Trust me - you will love it!

With a academic clinical and personal clinical background in psychology and psychoanalysis acquired with some difficulty because of the profusion of vocabularies involved, this book impressed me by its clarity.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Esssays of Amazing Depth and Breadth 18 septembre 2013
Par esperanza - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Siri Hustvedt is a Renaissance woman whose scholarship, intuition, and incredible ability to synthesize allow her to reveal the common themes in seemingly disparate fields. Her metacognitive passages enable the reader to follow her thinking to new vistas in understanding the self. Her sentences are as clear and refreshing as mountain water. Siri uses examples from her own life to illustrate the human experiences through the lenses of neuroscience, psychology, poetry, and visual art. Stunning!

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the BEST book of essays EVER!!!! I have never read a more apt description of Giorgio Morandi's work to only mention one essay. I've already ordered all that Siri Hustvedt has written.

Five stars and BRAVO these essays are eloquent and sane.

Hustvedt is an intelligent writer who does not take shortcuts in explaining her perspective and expanding ours. I rarely highlight items or words in a book, but this one demanded it of me. I talked about memory to everyone I know when reading her essays on it. Now that I have finished the collection, I am re-examining art that I own and art that I remember. I am not likely to read this book again, but I will go back again and again to the highlights. They amaze.

I have enjoyed reading these essays probably as much as "Mysteries of the Rectangle",which I highly recommend to anyone in the arts.
Hustvedt has mastered the art of the essay form, bringing together ideas and viewpoints from disparate disciplines.
The essay on painter Giorgio Morandi, puts into words things one often is incapable of uttering before
the impenetrable silence of a Morandi Still Life. Recommended reading.

Par Dr. Gretchen Simms - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The psychological aspects of this book are very interesting and easily read - all very personal but she lacks actual art historical background and at the end of the book this becomes noticeable. Overall a good well-written read.
