This collection of articles from prominent philosophers and practitioners of the arts illuminates the notion of meaning in the arts - in literature, painting, music, and dance. Specific topics include the application of theory in literary criticism, music, and dance; explorations of the relationship between authorial intentions and the viewer's interpretation of meaning; the possibility (or impossibility) of objective meaning; and the role of the consumer as a participant in the work of art.
