Rilke's prayerful responses to the french master's beseeching art For a long time nothing, and then suddenly one has the right eyes. Virtually every day in the fall of 1907, Rainer Maria Rilke returned to a Paris gallery to view a Cezanne exhibition. Nearly as frequently, he wrote dense and joyful letters to his wife, Clara Westhoff, expressing his dismay before the paintings and his ensuing revelations about art and life. Rilke was knowledgeable about art and had even published monographs, including a famous study of Rodin that inspired his New Poems. But Cezanne's impact on him could not be conveyed in a traditional essay. Rilke's sense of kinship with Cezanne provides a powerful and prescient undercurrent in these letters -- passages from them appear verbatim in Rilke's great modernist novel, The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge. Letters on Cezanne is a collection of meaningfully private responses to a radically new art.

Revered and misunderstood by his peers and lauded by later generations as the father of modern art, Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) has long been a subject of fascination for artists and art lovers, writers, poets, and philosophers. His life was a ceaseless artistic quest, and he channeled much of his wide-ranging intellect and ferocious wit into his letters. Punctuated by exasperated theorizing and philosophical reflection, outbursts of creative ecstasy and melancholic confession, the artist’s correspondence reveals both the heroic and all-toohuman qualities of a man who is indisputably among the pantheon of all-time greats. This new translation of Cézanne’s letters includes more than twenty that were previously unpublished and reproduces the sketches and caricatures with which Cézanne occasionally illustrated his words. The letters shed light on some of the key artistic relationships of the modern period—about one third of Cézanne’s more than 250 letters are to his boyhood companion Émile Zola, and he communicated extensively with Camille Pissarro and the dealer Ambroise Vollard. The translation is richly annotated with explanatory notes, and, for the first time, the letters are cross-referenced to the current catalogue raisonné. Numerous inaccuracies and archaisms in the previous English edition of the letters are corrected, and many intriguing passages that were unaccountably omitted have been restored. The result is a publishing landmark that ably conveys Cézanne’s intricacy of expression.

Paul Cézanne (1839-1906), whose work profoundly influenced modern art, is revealed here in all his sensitivity and complexity. With over one hundred letters to Zola and others, poems and photographs. “In this biography, admirable from beginning to end, Paul Cézanne is at last brought convincingly to life... Gerstle Mack has produced a full-length portrait [...] likely to prove, all in all, the most sympathetic, unbiased and complete picture of the extraordinary ‘hermit of Aix’ that we shall ever have... to read Mr. Mack’s beautifully coordinated narrative is sheer pleasure... With what amounts virtually to a novelist’s grasp of the whole situation, Mr. Mack causes Cézanne’s friends — those who played in any measure a significant part in his life — to come alive along with him... Gerstle Mack, in preparing this exceptionally fine biography of Cézanne, has assembled the existing material, weighed it with discriminating judgment, and woven the strands together to form a portrait that seems irradiated with truth...the life of Paul Cézanne as reconstructed by Mr. Mack is extraordinarily full and satisfying. It is a deft, engrossing, revelatory piece of work.” — Edward Arden Jewell, The New York Times(October 13, 1935) “The best biography [of Paul Cézanne] in English.” — John Rewald, The History of Impressionism “A thorough, dependable biography... It will remain the one indispensable source for those who undertake to interpret the modern master.” — The Nation “[Gerstle Mack] gives an excellent account of the impressionist movement... while his discussion of Cézanne’s painting is always lucid.” — London Times Literary Supplement “Mr. Mack’s chief reward is likely to come in finding that his work has set a date in our understanding of Cézanne’s real part in the history of modern painting.” — The New Republic “Definitive life of the painter who probably influenced modern art more than any man of his time... An important book for anyone interested in the history of art.” — Kirkus Reviews

The Poet As Phenomenologist

The Poet as Phenomenologist: Rilke and the New Poems opens up new perspectives on the relation between Rilke's poetry and phenomenological philosophy, illustrating the ways in which poetry can offer an exceptional response to the philosophical problem of dualism. Drawing on the work of Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty, Luke Fischer makes a new contribution to the tradition of phenomenological poetics and expands the debate among Germanists concerning the phenomenological status of Rilke's poetry, which has been severely limited to comparisons of Rilke and Husserl. Fischer explicates an implicit phenomenology of perception in Rilke's writings from his middle period (1902-1910). He argues that Rilke cultivated an artistic perception that, in a philosophically significant manner, overcomes the opposition between the sensuous and the intelligible while simultaneously transcending the boundaries of philosophy. Fischer offers novel interpretations of central poems from Rilke's Neue Gedichte (1907) and Der neuen Gedichte anderer Teil (1908) and frames them as the ultimate articulation of Rilke's non-dualistic vision. He thus demonstrates the continuity between Rilke and phenomenology while arguing that poetry, in this case, provides the most adequate response to a philosophical problem.

Cezanne And The End Of Impressionism

Drawing on a broad foundation in the history of nineteenth-century French art, Richard Shiff offers an innovative interpretation of Cézanne's painting. He shows how Cézanne's style met the emerging criteria of a "technique of originality" and how it satisfied critics sympathetic to symbolism as well as to impressionism. Expanding his study of the interaction of Cézanne and his critics, Shiff considers the problem of modern art in general. He locates the core of modernism in a dialectic of making (technique) and finding (originality). Ultimately, Shiff provides not only clarifying accounts of impressionism and symbolism but of a modern classicism as well.
