Description - Apocalyptic Bodies by Tina Pippin
Apocalypse can be broadly defined as any representation of the end of the world or anxiety over and preparation for the end of time. In this timely volume, Tina Pippin traces the biblical notions of end times as represented in ancient and modern texts, art, music and popular culture and addresses the question of how we, in the late twentieth century, are to be competent and ethical readers of and responders to the 'signs of the times'. Apocalyptic Bodies presents a cultural, critical reading of apocalyptic texts and images, using a variety of critical perspectives, including body criticism, ideological criticism and horror and fantasy theories.
