Abstract:

How are pain and joy constructed, articulated, represented, manipulated,
and, ultimately, socially determined? This is the first collection of
essays that investigates how such multi-faceted and subjective domains of
human experience as pain and joy— which combine physical, psychological,
private, public, conceptual, and cultural dimensions— are represented and
reconstructed in language, literature, and culture. Adopting a genuinely
interdisciplinary approach, the book is organized around themes and divided
into four parts which blend literary, cultural, and linguistic examinations
of theoretical angles, socio-cultural appropriations, stage and screen
constructions, and the body. Contributors include eminent scholars from a
variety of fields— Catherine Belsey, Declan Kiberd, Zoltán Kövecses, and
Elaine Scarry— whose work informs a current academic conversation also
developed by other authors in the volume from original angles. With its
multi-cultural focus, cross-historical, and interdisciplinary
scope—featuring studies of literature, language, art, philosophy, religion,
theatre, film, music, television, the internet—this book not only surveys
past and contemporary theoretical and critical grounds, but also
anticipates future developments: an invaluable resource for all scholars
and students exploring the representation of joy and/or pain.
