Faith and Power in Japanese Buddhist Art, 1600-2005 - Taschenbuch

2005, ISBN: 9780824831912

Gebundene Ausgabe, ID: 585293609

Random House. Paperback. New. Paperback. 400 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 1.1in.In this elegant and affectionate biography of one of the most controversial personalities of the nineteenth century, Barbara Belford breaks new ground in the evocation of Oscar Wildes personal life and in our understanding of the choices he made for his art. Published for the centenary of Wildes death, here is a fresh, full-scale examination of the author of The Importance of Being Earnest and The Picture of Dorian Gray, a figure not only full of himself but enjoying life to the fullest. Based on extensive study of original sources and animated throughout by historical detail, anecdote, and insight, the narrative traces Wildes progression from his childhood in an intellectual Irish household to his maturity as a London author to the years of his European exile. Here is Wilde the Oxford Aesthete becoming the talk of London, going off to tour America, lecturing on the craftsmanship of Cellini to the silver miners of Colorado, condemning the ugliness of cast-iron stoves to the ladies of Boston. Here is the domestic Wilde, building sandcastles with his sons, and the generous Wilde, underwriting the publication of poets, lending and spending with no thought of tomorrow. And here is the romantic Wilde, enthralled with Lord Alfred Douglas in an affair that thrived on laughter, smitten with Florence Balcombe, flirting with Violet Hunt, obsessed with Lillie Langtry, loving Constance, his wife. Vividly evoked are the theatres, clubs, restaurants, and haunts that Wilde made famous. More than previous accounts, Belfords biography evaluates Wildes homosexuality as not just a private matter but one connected to the politics and culture of the 1890s. Wildes timeless observations, which make him the most quoted playwright after Shakespeare, are seamlessly woven into the life, revealing a man of remarkable intellect, energy, and warmth. Too often portrayed as a tragic figure--persecuted, imprisoned, sent into exile, and shunned--Wilde emerges from this intuitive portrait as fully human and fallible, a man who, realizing that his creative years were behind him, committed himself to a life of sexual freedom, which he insisted was the privilege of every artist. Even now, we have yet to catch up with the man who exhibited some of the more distinguishing characteristics of the twentieth centurys preoccupation with fame and zeal for self-advertisement. Wildes personality shaped an era, and his popularity as a wit and a dramatist has never ebbed. From the Hardcover edition. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN., Random House, Faith and Power in Japanese Buddhist Art explores the transformation of Buddhism from the premodern to the contemporary era in Japan and the central role its visual culture has played in this transformation. Although Buddhism is generally regarded as peripheral to modern Japanese society, this book demonstrates otherwise. Its chapters elucidate the thread of change over time in the practice of Buddhism as revealed in temple worship halls and other sites of devotion and in imagery representing the religion's most popular deities and religious practices. It also introduces the work of modern and contemporary artists who are not generally associated with institutional Buddhism and its canonical visual requirements but whose faith inspires their art. The author makes a persuasive argument that the neglect of these materials by scholars results from erroneous presumptions about the aesthetic superiority of early Japanese Buddhist artifacts and an asserted decline in the institutional power of the religion after the sixteenth century. She demonstrates that recent works constitute a significant contribution to the history of Japanese art and architecture, providing evidence of Buddhism's persistent and compelling presence at all levels of Japanese society and its evolution in response to the needs of new generations of supporters both within and beyond its orthodox institutions.The book is divided into two chronological sections. The first explores Buddhism in an earlier period of Japanese art (1600-1868), emphasizing the production of Buddhist temples and imagery within the larger political, social, and economic concerns of the time. It surveys the important and representative Buddhist sites and the attraction of the faith to both the authoritative shogunal regime and private citizens. The second section addresses Buddhism's visual culture in modern Japan (1868-2005), specifically the relationship between Buddhist institutions prior to World War II and the increasingly militaristic national government that had initially persecuted them. Following this, the author looks at a concurrent development: the transformation of sacred imagery from icon into art, which in turn stimulated the emergence of a new form of Buddhism dominated by nondenominational practitioners, including secular artists with a personal affinity for Buddhism. The final chapters focus on Buddhist sites and imagery after the war, introducing some of the most distinctive recent sites of worship and the new makers of Buddhist art, who range from traditional workshops and devout laypersons to artists, as both makers and patrons of Buddhist devotional art.This accessible and well-researched volume can be read with profit by scholars and students of Japanese art, history, and religion, as well as by anyone with an interest in Buddhism or Japanese culture., Univ of Hawaii Pr
