Melodrama and the Affective Arts of the Nineteenth Century
|Title:||Melodrama and the Affective Arts of the Nineteenth Century||Authors:||Daly, Nicholas||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/6491||Date:||2011||Abstract:||In this essay I want to consider some of the ways in which nineteenth-century art, drama, and literature emotionally engaged their audience through melodrama, an affective form that aimed at a physical response in the subject as much, or more, than a cerebral one. Effects were harnessed to produce affects: sometimes tears, sometimes suspense. I want to approach this topic through the melodramatic representation of the city.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Spartacus||Keywords:||Mulready, Augustus Edward||Subject LCSH:||Melodrama--History and criticism||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Hagen, M., Koppen, R. and Vibe Skagen, M.
