ZusatzInformation The Perverse Library is the latest poetic bookwork from scholar, critic, and iam co-editor Craig Dworkin. The book comprises of a bibliography of Dworkin’s book shelves at home, a supplementary bibliography of absent and imagined books, and an accompanying essay arguing that libraries are in fact defined not by what they contain, but by what books they exclude or fail to include. The essay also investigates the histories of libraries, makes a theoretical argument about the relation of canons to architectural space, and explores the psychology of collecting — including the pathology of bibliomania.
