Descrizione
Guided by the groundbreaking work of the late Daniel Poirion, medievalists have in recent years begun to reconsider assumptions about allegory, asserting that medieval allegory does not contain stable meaning or the whole truth but instead produces a play of illusions and an inexhaustible regression of mimetic figures. This volume, produced in memory of Poirion's untimely passing, rereads allegory and explores its interpretive, cul-tural, theoretical, and political complexities. Contents: Grace M. Armstrong Questions of Inheritance; R. Howard Bloch Medieval French Literature and Its Devices; Kevin Brownlee Pygmalion, Mimesis, and the Multiple Endings of the Roman de la Rose; Brigitte Cazelles Arthur as Barbe-Bleue; Jody Enders Memory, Allegory, and the Romance of Rhetoric; Eric Hicks Donner a voir; David F. Hult The Allegoresis of Everyday Life; Peggy McCracken The Poetics of Sacrifice; Stephen G. Nichols Poetic Places and Real Spaces; Daniel Poirion Literature as Memory; Daniel Poirion Mask and Allegorical Personification; Nancy Freeman Regalado The Medieval Construction of the Modern Reader
