Aesthetic Blindness: Symbolism, Realism, and Reality
Abstract

Abstract:

As a representation of blindness, Maurice Maeterlinck’s The Blind is highly problematic and becomes more so if we fail to engage with its social implications. This essay teases out these issues, compares their representation with contemporaneous works of realism, and illustrates the play’s twenty-first-century relevance on the basis of visually impaired embodiment.
