Synopsis

How can works of the imagination help us to understand good and evil in the modern world? In this new collection of essays, Alex Danchev treats the artist as a crucial moral witness of our troubled times, and puts art to work in the service of political and ethical inquiry.
In this book of blasphemers, world menders, troublemakers, torturers and turbulent priests of every persuasion, Danchev consider art as freedom from moral narrowness and corner perspectives, as Nietzsche said. And he takes inspiration from Seamus Heaney's dictum: "the imaginative transformation of human life is the means by which we can most truly grasp and comprehend it."
This is a book of blasphemers, world menders, troublemakers, torturers and turbulent priests of every persuasion.
