Adorno's Poetics of Critique (Continuum Studies in by Steven Helmling

By Steven Helmling

Adorno's Poetics of Critique is a severe learn of the Marxist culture-critic Theodor W. Adorno, a founding member of the Frankfurt tuition and largely looked this day as its so much fabulous exponent.
Steven Helmling is centrally focused on Adorno's notoriously tricky writing, a function such a lot commentators recognize in simple terms to set it apart with a purpose to an expository account of 'what Adorno is saying'. in contrast, Adorno's complicated writing is the principal concentration of this learn, including specific research of Adorno's most complicated texts, particularly his most famed and intricate paintings, co-authored with Max Horkheimer, Dialectic of Enlightenment.
Helmling argues that Adorno's key motifs - dialectic, thought, negation, immanent critique, constellation - are prescriptions no longer simply for serious pondering, but in addition for serious writing. For Adorno the efficacy of critique is conditioned on how the writing of critique is written. either in concept and in perform, Adorno urges a 'poetics of critique' that's every piece as serious as anything in his 'critical idea.
