This edited volume; Intimate Relationships in Cinema; Literature and Visual Culture (PDF) is an inquiry into the representation of intimate relationships in a diverse array of media including arts; cinema; literature; advertising; picture books; and popular music. It examines the artistic portrayal of intimate relationships as a subversion of the boundaries between the non-representable and the representable; the visceral and the ideal; the real and the surreal; the embodied and the abstracted; the configured and transfigured. The essays focus on the artistic mediation of intimacy in diverse relationships; including same-sex; heterosexual; sibling; familial; political; and sadomasochistic. The collection offers new interdisciplinary and multicultural perspectives on current trends in the study of popular representations of intimacy; representations that affect and formulate people’s most personal inspirations; angsts; desires; dreams; and nightmares in an increasingly alienated; industrialized world.
