In the last fifteen years the representation of the body has received increasingly serious scholarly attention across a range of academic disciplines. It is being "re - thought and re-considered" (Ewing,1994:9) As the critical perspectives have developed, the issue of the clothed and unclothed human form has arisen. Thus the intellectual examination of 'the body' has secured the critical scrutiny of clothing as worthy of significant scholarship. This essay raises some of the key issues of the clothed body in relation to the images in this book and the construction of identity.
