Rosenberg/Barthes/Hassan: The Postmodern Habit of Thought (Paperback)Jerome Klinkowitz (author)
- We can order this
Klinkowitz traces the progression of thought that links the work of critic Harold Rosenberg, who introduced the concept of ""action painting""; the semiotician Roland Barthes, who redefined art, culture, and ideology as language systems; and visionary literary scholar Ihab Hassan, whose works call for nothing less than a rethinking of man's place within the material and spiritual universe.

This work itself is a postmodern critical collage that should invite its readers to enter into polyphony that aims at liberating us from those fixed categories of thought that often, in effect, stop thought.--"French Review"
This is nothing less than a most provocative schematization of the ontological substructures of postmodernism as articulated by the three writers mentioned in the book's title, plus Klinkowitz's astute appreciation of the significant artistic events of the last twenty years.--"Artweek"
