Summary:
"The evidence collected in this book suggests that the second half of the nineteenth century saw the first stirrings in Western culture of a primary interest in mess for its own sake: a development which has something to do with the gradual fading, amid a great deal of reassertion, of doctrines of determinism; and something to do with democracy, which would be hard to imagine without litter.

    schema:reviewBody ""The evidence collected in this book suggests that the second half of the nineteenth century saw the first stirrings in Western culture of a primary interest in mess for its own sake: a development which has something to do with the gradual fading, amid a great deal of reassertion, of doctrines of determinism; and something to do with democracy, which would be hard to imagine without litter. Messes, like modern identities, happen by accident; their representation, in painting and fiction, made it possible to think boldly and inventively about chance. Ranging widely - from Turner to Courbet, Cezanne, and Degas, and from Melville to Maupassant, Chekhov, Gissing, and the New Woman writers - this book outlines a style of commentary on modern life in which the ancient dichotomy of order and chaos (culture and anarchy) was supplanted, at least temporarily, by a distinction between different kinds and qualities of mess."--Jacket." ;
