Art for Art’s Sake
The theory “art for art’s sake” is used by many writers.
Art for art’s sake – a phrase, which we can find, probably, in every language. Nowadays this problem becomes more and more urgent. Let’s find out, what it actually means.
So, there are several interpretations of it, but we will choose this one: “the aesthetic concept, which denies the connection between artistic creativity and social life, with work and societies”. Since ancient times there were writers who wrote for some people. But is it right? That’s a big question without answer.
Let’s just turn to the Pushkin's work, for example. The theme of the poet and poetry is central in his lyrics. He wrote about the ideal of the poet in his “Prophet”, “Poet and crowd”, “To poet”. He creates an image of the poet, fighting for the freedom of expression of his thoughts, for the truthfulness of poetry, for their independence from the power of money and the crowd. Poet should be independent and adequately carry out his mission - "sear the hearts of men by a word".
Pushkin tried to get rid of the connection his works with the society. But what is the situation with modern writers?
Just take a magazine or a newspaper. Have you ever heard about the term “jeansa”? This means the articles, which are written to order. It violates all the ethics, destroys the sense of the art itself. It’s hard to find the truthful article nowadays to say nothing of the big amount of writers who write their books specially for some events or people, not because of their willing.
To conclude, let’s remember, that art, talent are used to be sublime in their original meanings and, perhaps, we should divide and decide now for ourselves, what the real art is, and what is just fake.
