Description - The Sense of an Interior by Diana Fuss

The Sense of an Interior is a fascinating exploration of domestic space and of the ways it determines how writers work. The book looks at four famous figures - Emily Dickinson, Sigmund Freud, Helen Keller, and Marcel Proust, and examines the relationship between their work and the spaces where they wrote. Diana Fuss examines how each writer ordered their room in response to disabilities of varying seriousness; as well as Helen Keller, Emily Dickinson was house bound as a result of periodic bouts of blindness, Freud was partially deaf, and Proust, obsessed by smell, couldn't bear to work near the odour of cooking. Illustrated with almost sixty images, many rare, and some never before published, this richly observed book weaves together new understandings of domestic space, creativity, and disability.
