520    This comic, serious inquiry into the nature of art takes 
       its technical vocabulary from Alice's Adventures in 
       Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. It is ridiculous
       to think of poems, paintings, or films as distinct from 
       other things in the world, including people. Talking about
       art should be contiguous with talking about other relevant
       matters. 
520    What Art Is Like is a comic, serious inquiry into the 
       nature of art. It provides welcome relief from prevailing 
       modes of explaining art that involve definitions, 
       philosophical claims, and critical judgments put forth by 
       third parties. Scrapping all such chatter, Miguel Tamen's 
       aphoristic lark with aesthetic questions proceeds by 
       taking its technical vocabulary only from Lewis Carroll's 
       Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-
       Glass. According to Tamen, it would be ridiculous to think
       of poems or paintings or films or any variety of artistic 
       production as distinct from other things in the world, 
       including people. Talking about art should be contiguous 
       with talking about many other relevant and important 
       matters. Tamen offers a series of analogies and similes to
       help us imagine these connected experiences. One, taken 
       from the analytical table of contents where the book is 
       writ small, suggests that "understanding a poem is like 
       understanding a cat; neither ever says anything back and 
       you can't keep a conversation with them. All art is like 
       this, but not only art is like this; nature, the past, 
       numbers are also like this." Tamen takes up many central 
       issues in aesthetics and the philosophy of art, including 
       the connection between art and having fuzzy ideas about 
       art, the mistake of imagining that art-decisions are put 
       forth by art-courts where you are both judge and jury, and
       the notion that what happens with art also happens to you.
