What is culture really for? 

How to find compassion, hope and perspective in the arts. 

Many people search for the meaning of life through music, film, literature and the visual arts. But how can we synthesize the emotions we feel through art? 

This book looks at how works of culture were made - that is, to improve the way we live. Connecting a range of (Western) cultural masterpieces with our own pains and dilemmas, we learn to better see culture as a resource, a way to address the agonies of being human. 

It provides us with enduring keys to unlocking culture as a way of transforming our lives. 

Using common themes - such as companionship, hope balance, compassion, knowledge, encouragement, appreciation, and perspective - and combining them with works from Bach to Renoir, The Beatles to Mel Gibson's Braveheart, Hamlet, Anselm Kiefer, and writers like Proust and Virginia Woolf, this book provides the key to unlocking culture. Indeed, the keys to transforming our lives.

  • HOW MUSIC, FILM, LITERATURE AND VISUAL ART operate in our society and lives. 
  • EXPLORES CULTURAL MASTERPIECES and how they relate to our everyday lives. 
  • ILLUSTRATED with full color images throughout. 
  • THOUGHT-PROVOKING CONCEPTS that enhance any future visit to a gallery, theater or cinema. 
  • BEAUTIFULLY PRODUCED premium gift format.

New: Just like it sounds. A brand-new, unused, unread copy in perfect condition.

Like New: An apparently unread copy in perfect condition. Dust cover is intact; pages are clean and are not marred by notes or folds of any kind.

 * Very Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged.

 * Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include "From the library of" labels or previous owner inscriptions.

 * Acceptable: A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text.
