Reading and the Body: The Physical Practice of Reading

Reading and the Body: The Physical Practice of Reading by Mc Laughlin
English | 2016 | ISBN: 1137541318, 9781137541314, B0161IXFTM | 208 Pages | PDF | 2.43 MB

Literary theory has been dominated by a mind/body dualism that often eschews the role of the body in reading. Focusing on reading as a physical practice, McLaughlin analyzes the role of the eyes, the hands, postures and gestures, bodily habits and other physical spaces, with discussions ranging from James Joyce to the digital future of reading.
