Mette Hjort and Sue Laver have put together a useful collection of essays on the relationship between art and emotion....this is an important assemblage of essays. The combination of disciplines that contribute to the varying perspectives makes it a truly interdisciplinary and controversial collection. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to have an understanding of the connection between art and emotion. It is high time that such a comprehensive collection was put forth on this essential topic in aesthetics. * The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism *
