Idolizing Pictures by Anthony Julius
Book Description'Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth' - Exodus 20:4 In this ground-breaking book Anthony Julius derives a Jewish aesthetic from the Second Commandment. The prohibition of idolatry is not just an injunction against idol worshipping, but a call to idol breaking; it promotes a creative iconoclasm which exposes through irony inflated claims about art. Julius identifies and celebrates those Jewish works of art which by their irony subvert artistic and politic idolatry. Idolizing Pictures is a manifesto for Jewish art.

Books By Author Anthony Julius
Trials of the Diaspora, Paperback (February 2012)
The first ever comprehensive history of anti-Semitism in England, from medieval murder and expulsion through to contemporary forms of anti-Zionism in the 21st century.
T.S.Eliot, Anti-Semitism and Literary Form, Paperback (June 2003)
Of the many different kinds of anti-Semite, Eliot was the rarest: one who was able to place his anti-Semitism at the service of his art. This study looks both at the detail of Eliot's deployment of anti-Semite discourse and at the role it played in his greater literary works.
Transgressions, Hardback (October 2002)
Anthony Julius shows how the modern period has been characterized by three kinds of transgressive art: an art that perverts established art rules; an art that defiles the beliefs and sentiments of its audience; and an art that challenges and disobeys the rules of the state.
Law and Literature, Hardback (August 1999)» View all books by Anthony Julius
This is the second volume of a series entitled 'Current Legal Issues'. It shows that although law is literature, it also features in literature such as Shakespeare, Dickens, and Hardy. The law is also used to control literature through defamation, blasphemy, obscenity, etc.
