Spectrum of Emotions

From Love to Grief


Wojciech Drąg and Ewa Kębłowska-Ławniczak

The authors of this volume discuss the tangible need for a revision of the vocabulary of emotion used in literary criticism and culture studies. The articles offer a wide range of interdisciplinary approaches to emotional states such as love, shame, grief, nostalgia and trauma. They demonstrate that the once stable concept of emotion disintegrates in the course of re-evaluation and is replaced by such notions as affects, passions, feelings and emotions. This volume examines the representations of emotion in drama, poetry and prose – from the anonymous Court of Love (ca. 1500) to Ali Smith’s How to Be Both (2014) – as well as in life writing, music, the visual arts and theology.

Warhol and Queer Shame

The watershed moment in the critical discussion of queer shame in Andy Warhol was the 1996 publication of Pop Out: Queer Warhol, which included contributions from the volume’s coeditor Jonathan Flatley, Michael Moon and Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick. Her work in turn became an important point of departure for Douglas Crimp’s 2012 “Our Kind of Movie”: The Films of Andy Warhol. This article revisits the argument that queer shame is central to Warhol’s work and then extends it to his Pop aesthetic – which does not, prima facie, thematize queerness or shame – by considering Warhol’s dismissive comment on Susan Sontag’s “Notes on Camp” (1964).
