This edited volume, Intimate Relationships in Cinema, Literature and Visual Culture (PDF) is an inquiry into the representation of intimate relationships in a diverse array of media including arts, cinema, literature, advertising, picture books, and popular music. It examines the artistic portrayal of intimate relationships as a subversion of the boundaries between the non-representable and the representable, the visceral and the ideal, the real and the surreal, the embodied, and the abstracted, the configured and transfigured. The essays focus on the artistic mediation of intimacy in diverse relationships, including same-sex, heterosexual, sibling, familial, political, and sadomasochistic. The collection offers new interdisciplinary and multicultural perspectives on current trends in the study of popular representations of intimacy; representations that affect and formulate people’s most personal inspirations, angsts, desires, dreams, and nightmares in an increasingly alienated, industrialized world.
