Summary
In this collection of essays, cultural and literary critic Garber (English, visual and environmental studies, Harvard University) focuses on words that have, in various ways, become 'loaded' in recent years, such as "'madness," "celebrity,""knowledge," "general education," and "patriotism." There are several essays on Shakespeare, and on the work of thinkers including Kant, Freud, and Foucault. Other subjects considered include advertising culture, film and TV, Hollywood tourism, and IQ tests. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
