Contents: Paul Claudel and the tradition of art criticism by poets - The religious reading of the iconographic text in l'oeil ecoute - The imagery of l'oeil ecoute.
I read several successive draft of 'The Art Criticism of Paul Claudel' in 'L'Oeil ecoute', and it became a piece of work I do highly respect. Killiam wrote a first and well-informed part on Claudel's unique position within the tradition of art criticism by poets. In the second part, Killiam refers to the contemporary school of semiology which also intends to read the work of art. She relies, in the third part, on another method of analysis, inspired by phenomenology, anthropology, and thematics. She writes convincingly, and I trust it will become the first book on 'L'Oeil ecoute'. (Antoine Compagnon, Columbia University)
