Summary
"The artists of the seventeenth-century baroque period used spectacle to delight and astonish; contemporary entertainment media, according to Angela Ndalianis, are imbued with a neo-baroque aesthetic that is similarly spectacular. In Neo-Baroque Aesthetics and Contemporary Entertainment she situates today's film, computer games, comic books, and theme park attractions within an aesthetic-historical context and uses the baroque as a framework to enrich our understanding of contemporary entertainment media."--Jacket
