Books By Author Alex Danchev
On Good and Evil and the Grey Zone, Hardback (December 2015)
These essays put art to work in the service of political and ethical inquiry. Like Alex Danchev's widely acclaimed previous collection for EUP, On Art and War and Terror (2009), they take their inspiration from Seamus Heaney's dictum that 'the imaginative transformation of human life is the means by which we can most truly grasp and comprehend it.'
Cezanne, Paperback (October 2013)
Today we view Cezanne as a monumental figure, but during his lifetime (1839-1906), many did not understand him or his work. This book tells the story of an artist who was never accepted into the official Salon: he was considered a revolutionary at best and a barbarian at worst, whose paintings were unfinished, distorted and strange.
Letters of Paul Cezanne, Hardback (September 2013)
A translation of the correspondence of Paul Cezanne, known as the father of modern art. This book paints a picture of Cezanne as a singular thinker and an uncompromising seeker after artistic truth qualities that shine through in the letters, but that many of his contemporaries failed to appreciate or comprehend.
On Art and War and Terror, Paperback (April 2011)» View all books by Alex Danchev
This book, newly available in paperback, offers a sustained demonstration of the way in which works of art can help us to explore the most difficult ethical and political issues of our time: war, terror, extermination, torture and abuse.
