C'est au XIXe siècle que se constitue, en s'arrachant à la tutelle de l'Etat, l'univers artistique tel que nous le connaissons. Emblématique de cette construction du champ littéraire comme monde à part, soumis à ses propres lois, le projet esthétique d'un Flaubert se forme au moment même où la conquête de l'autonomie entre dans sa phase critique. En définissant la logique ...more

If it's just for the tourists who come by during the summer and like shiny colors, he might not imbue his work with all the subtleties that he might otherwise put in a work created for his peers (let's say a pottery contest) who will not be impressed by shiny colors but by more subtle techniques the tourists would not even have noticed. The pottery produced for the tourists need not be excellent, just pretty and readily available to them (so the potter must produce at a somewhat faster pace, because the objective is to sell as many vases as possible).
In contrast a vase produced for other potters takes more time and reflexion, as they too understand pottery and will not be so easily impressed. It is more of a technical challenge and is designed not merely to please the crowd's eye, but to show the extent of the potter's mastery of his craft.
(This analogy does not take into account the fact that writers/artists must first be vetted by an editor /gallery manager, which is kind of a big issue...)
In my opinion though, great works of art are those who are able to speak to the peers as well as to the (ignorant) masses. And I personally believe great writers and artists create not for their peers nor for the market but for themselves first and foremost.
I hope I have partially answered your question...(less)

Cualquier persona a la que le interese la cultura o se considere productor cultural (pintor, escritor, editor, crítico...) debería leer este libro. Rompe con toda la teoría literaria y la hermenéutica. Desmonta la "creencia" en el autor y subvierte todo el espacio social desvelando las "relaciones objetivas" entre los agentes culturales y el resto de los campos (político, social y económico).

Increíble.

كتاب مهم وممتع.
تطبيق جميل لرؤية بيير بورديو التي تقوم على التحليل النفسي الثقافي للأدب والفن.
ربما وجدته أكثر سهولة وقابلية للقراءة من كتابات سابقة للمؤلف نفسه.
يسلط الكتاب الضوء على الصلة الوثيقة بين النوعية الفنية ودرجة استقلال أو تبعية مجال فني خاص (المجال الأدبي مثلًا) للسلطات السياسية أو الاقتصادية أو الدينية أو الفكرية.
يرفض المؤلف اتجاهات في علم الاجتماع تهتم بالظواهر الاجتماعية "المنعكسة" في الأعمال الفنية ولكنها تغفل النوعية الفنية لتلك الأعمال، كما يرفض اتجاهات مما

Un libro imprescindible para entender las lógicas específicas de disputa de poder dentro del campo literario. Especialmente útil es la consideración de que la autonomía del campo literario(extrapolable a otros campos artísticos) funciona con un sistema de valores invertidos en el que el dinero es visto con sospecha frente a la "pureza" de aquellos que aman el arte por el arte.

Bourdieu can be nearly unreadable, between the allusions to obscure French writers, the neologisms and the nearly endless streams of prepositions, but when you cut through it, you find an engaging argument. For my purposes, I'm most interested in the idea that artists have a different hierarchy of prestige than do the bourgeoisie, but I'm also interested in his habitus-based method of reading, which he gives us an example of in reading "A Rose for Emily" at the end, which is easier than the pain

I read most of this a couple years ago, but I skipped some essays that were very similar to essays in The Field of Cultural Production collection. Reading Bourdieu's essay on Flaubert and Jonathan Eastwood's commentary on it (doi: 10.1111/j.1467-9558.2007.00302.x) abraded and then soothed the brain, in succession.

Nice application of Bourdieu's socio-cultural analysis to literature and art. I find it much easier to read than his earlier writings. It's also very helpful to have numerous concrete examples, as in his extensive consideration of [Author: Gustave Flaubert]'s Education sentimentale.

On par with Bourdieu's book Distinction. He does two things simultaneously: Engages the 19th-century world of French literature and extends his own ongoing analysis of art and literature as dynamic fields of contest.

Complexe, mais intéressant : le champ littéraire. Bourdieu, tu compliques parfois trop les choses, mais le résultat peut être intéressant.

Gustave Flaubert, dublul lui Pierre Bourdieu, literatura pe post de sociologie intuitivă, mitul geniului renăscut chiar în inima pozitivismului, amestecat cu o nuanță de genealogie și de constructivism, iată câteva dintre temele acestei cărți. ”Stea” a cercetării sociale franceze de la sfârșitul secolului trecut, autorul ne-a lansat o provocare: descoperirea relației „corecte” dintre artă și societate, oferind un r

Las reglas del arte condensa las indagaciones del sociólogo Pierre Bourdieu acerca del origen y la estructura del campo estético literario. En el texto, cuyo link dejo a continuación, reviso algunos supuestos principales entorno al análisis sociológico de la obra de arte, tal como la propone Bourdieu en el preámbulo a Las reglas del arte y su lectura de La educación sentimental de Flaubert: https://letrasyculturas.wordpress.com...

Apart from Bourdieu extremely tiring lexicon and long-winded sentences, the book was quite interesting to read. However, it definitely is intended for a specific audience and would be better understood with a firm grasp on the pleiad of philosophers, writers, and art theoreticians that Bourdieu refers to throughout the book.

Je l'ai lu en partie, le chapitre qui parle de Flaubert et je l'ai trouvé très intéressant. Il explique comment la littérature est devenu un outil pour l'appropriation d'un mode de vie bohème, en s'opposant aux élites de l'époque et comment cela a permis l'autonomisation du champs littéraire, que l'on appelait autrefois la "République des Lettres".

Bourdieu pioneered investigative frameworks and terminologies such as cultural, social, and symbolic capital, and the concepts of habitus, field or location, and symbolic violence to reveal the dynamics of power relations in social life. His work emphasized the role of practice and embodiment or forms in social dynamics and worldview construction, often in opposition to universalized Western philo ...more
“I would simply ask why so many critics, so many writers, so many philosophers take such satisfaction in professing that the experience of a work of art is ineffable, that it escapes by definition all rational understanding; why are they so eager to concede without a struggle the defeat of knowledge; and where does their irrepressible need to belittle rational understanding come from, this rage to affirm the irreducibility of the work of art, or, to use a more suitable word, its transcendence.” 25 likes
“El cuestionamiento de las formas de pensamiento vigentes que efectúa la revolución simbólica y la originalidad absoluta de lo que engendra tiene como contra partida la soledad absoluta que implica la transgresión de los límites de lo pensable. Este pensamiento que así se ha convertido en su propia medida no puede esperar en efecto que mentes estructuradas según esas mismas categorías que cuestiona puedan pensar este impensable.” 3 likes
