What does it mean for a painter to remain a visual artist even as a writer? Carlo Levi's Visual Poetics engages this question through a critical re-examination of one of the most influential Italian intellectuals of the twentieth century, the painter and writer Carlo Levi. Reading Levi's major texts through the lens of his philosophical and critical essays, the author explores the ways in which the productive dialogue between word and image inherent in his works becomes an instrument of literary and political subversion and contributes to the development of Levi's original humanistic cultural program.
