Summary

The booklet (also in Spanish and French) presents an edited transcript of a conference dealing with images of the disabled in literature and the arts. L. Fielder's keynote paper traces the evolving role of disabled people by examining, in films and novels, the role of myth in society, the debilitating use of euphemisms, the unsatisfactory attempts to glorify disability, and reactions of pity and fear. Responses to Fielder feature criticism of his citing popular works of art over works of greater quality, and the suggestion that disability also evokes wonder. (CL)
