Goodbye to Morrissey: An Essay on Art and Morals

Goodbye to Morrissey: An Essay on Art and Morals
Library Shelf Location 05.MUHL
Publication Date 26 Apr 2021

Goodbye to Morrissey is a case study about what it means in Pop culture to place trust in someone, to be their fan. As such, it deals on the surface with the political and ethical conflict exemplified by the swing of the singer Morrissey to the radical right. On a deeper level, it treats the fundamental questions accompanying Morrissey’s shift: the relationship between art and morality, idol and adherent, critique and myth. Superficiality and profundity — Pop and philosophy — illuminate each other in one provocative essay.
