The Descent of ManThe Blue Magpie
The Descent of Man by Grayson Perry
What is masculinity and what can it become? It might seem like a luxury in a world facing climate change and vast imbalances in global wealth, but Grayson Perry sees masculinity as a key component in all the big issues. The Descent of Man explores everything from sex, seriousness and intimidation to clothing, childhood and power, suggesting a more modern model of manhood which may escape the gravity of Traditional Man.
