Innocence and Rapture: The Erotic Child in Pater, Wilde, James, and Nabokov by K. Ohi
English | Sep. 6, 2005 | ISBN: 1349531472 | 235 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Taking as its focus the erotic child in decadent aesthetics, this book explores the sexual and political stakes of an aestheticist experience of rapture. Ohi examines the power of the work of art to transport, to disorient, to move, to extort the equivocal pleasuresof self-loss. He also explores how the beautiful child offers partisans of 'art for art's sake' an emblem for the ecstatic and erotic, even the queer possibilities of art. Aestheticism's erotic child is thus in stark contrast to the innocent child of today's ideology, who secures the claims of identity against the very disorientations celebrated by aestheticism. Articulating aesthetic transport through the desiring and desired child, aestheticism interrogates the ideology underpinning sexual oppression.

In un oscuro paese dell'Europa orientale - i cui abitanti parlano ora tedesco ora russo ora una lingua che non coincide con nessuna di quelle esistenti - un filosofo quarantenne, Adam Krug, siede annichilito nell'ospedale dove è appena spirata l'amatissima moglie Olga. Krug è una celebrità internazionale, l'unica che possa vantare il piccolo Stato retto dal regime poliziesco di Paduk, fondatore del Partito dell'Uomo Comune, che propugna una dottrina violenta fondata sul "pensiero unico". Per consolidare il suo carisma il dittatore vorrebbe l'appoggio di Krug, ma lo studioso oppone il più deciso rifiuto in nome della libertà di coscienza, esponendosi così alla più feroce delle rappresaglie.
