About "The Wake of Imagination"
If postmodernism glorifies the artificiality of the image, what effect does that have on the authenticity of the imagination? To counter the ways in which the imagination has been undermined, Richard Kearney traces its history, its conceptual origins and mutations. With his remarkable range of vision, he takes us on a voyage of discovery that leads from Eden to Fellini, from paradise to parody -- plotting the various models of the imagination such as Hebrais, Greek, medieval, Romantic, existential, parodic and postmodern. The journey is a revelation.
