Paul Chan's Odysseus Essay in LA Review of Books
The latest issue of LA Review of Books' quarterly journal features a previously unpublished essay by Paul Chan, "Odysseus As Artist," that uses the character of Odysseus from Homer's The Odyssey to examine the role of cunning in art.
"Is it possible to broaden the terms for contemporary art by thinking through the notion of cunning as manifest in Odysseus? And can cunning be redescribed as a way or thinking and doing that raises the stakes for why art ought to matter today?"
