Widely recognized as a seminal work in Ranci?res corpus, the translation of which is long overdue, Mute Speech is an intellectual tour de force proposing a new framework for thinking about the history of art and literature.

Ranci?re argues that our current notion of literature is a relatively recent creation, having first appeared in the wake of the French Revolution and with the rise of Romanticism. In its rejection of the system of representational hierarchies that had constituted belles-letters, literature is founded upon a radical equivalence in which all things are possible expressions of the life of a people. With an analysis reaching back to Plato, Aristotle, the German Romantics, Vico, and Cervantes and concluding with brilliant readings of Flaubert, Mallarm?, and Proust, Ranci?re demonstrates the uncontrollable democratic impulse lying at the heart of literatures still-vital capacity for reinvention.
