The Eloquence of the Vulgar: Language, Cinema and the Politics of Culture

The Eloquence of the Vulgar: Language, Cinema and the Politics of Culture by Colin MacCabe
English | March 29, 1999 | ISBN: 0851706770, 0851706789 | True PDF | 192 pages | 3.5 MB

In "The Eloquence of the Vulgar, "the distinguished academic Colin MacCabe reflects on cultural change from Shakespeare to Derek Jarman, on the institutional forms of knowledge, on the links between popular and elite art, and on the role of the intellectual in contemporary life. A radical argument emerges from the book's diverse concerns. Cinema and television - the new and democratic art forms of the twentieth century - demand a fundamental rethinking of our concepts of language and culture. What is at stake is the very idea of a liberal and humane education.
