The "new" censorship of the arts, some cultural critics say, is just one more item on the "new" Right's agenda, of a piece with attempts to regulate sexuality, curtail female reproductive rights, restrict gays and lesbians, and privatize public institutions. While not contesting this assessment, the writers gathered here expose crucial difficulties in using censorship, old and new, as a tool for cultural criticism.

Areopagitica, Censorship, and the Early Modern Public Sphere

Areopagitica, Censorship, and the Early Modern Public Sphere. Given contemporary pressures to return humanistic studies to their traditional content and practices-pressures often brought to bear without acknowledging exactly what the earlier content and practices were-it may be time to comply by returning Shakespeare studies to a formerly perennial topic, lamentably absent today: namely, Shakespeare’s deep knowledge of plant lore, gardening, and flowers.

Literary criticism (or literary studies) is the study, evaluation, and interpretation of literature. Modern literary criticism is often influenced by literary theory, which is the philosophical discussion of literature's goals and methods. Though the two activities are closely related, literary critics are not always, and have not always been, theorists.

Book by Burt, Richard

Hellstaff
This is a path-breaking collection of essays on censorship. Contributors focus on examples ranging from the early modern (Milton's Areopagitica) top the modern (Joyce's Ulysses) to the postmodern. The collection as a whole shows how complicated censorship turns out to be. Burt's own essay on the LA County Musuem of Art's recontruction of the 1937 Nazi Degenerate Art exhibition is a masterpeice. A must for anyone intersted in censorship of litterature, the arts, musuems, academia and music.

Most people think of themselves as opposed to censorship and on the side of freedom. While the contributors to this stellar, striningly innovative colection no doubt view cesnorship negatively, their essays show in very persuasive and detailed ways that censorship takes many forms other than brute repression, and, more oever, that those forms cannot always be clearly differentiated from the practices of criticism, editing, museuum exhibition, and so on. A very compelling and provocative book.
