Gothic Legacies

Gothic Legacies PDF Book Detail Author: Laura Cleaver
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
ISBN: 1443838160
Category : Art
Languages : en
Pages : 315

Book Description
As this exciting contribution to interdisciplinary studies in the arts shows, the art and architecture of the Middle Ages were reworked, reframed and reinterpreted in diverse ways from as early as the sixteenth century. In addition, the definition of “Gothic” art and architecture was used, questioned, and challenged in a range of literature from the Renaissance onwards. The diverse essays in Gothic Legacies: Four Centuries of Tradition and Innovation in Art and Architecture demonstrate that the Gothic spirit manifested itself in many visual forms, including furniture, set design, cathedrals, book illustration, and urban architecture. Edited by Laura Cleaver and Ayla Lepine, Gothic Legacies showcases new research by scholars who are united by an interest what “Gothic” could mean in particular contexts, and how it was used across different periods, cultures, and media. The book’s twelve essays are divided into thematic sections, which identify recurring themes in discussions of the “Gothic”. The authors explore debates around the understanding and use of spolia and ideas about heritage, the relationships between “Gothic” art and literature, and the invocation of concepts of the “Gothic” in opposition to other categorisations (notably Classicism and Modernism). In doing so they shed light on rich dialogues between the present and the past (real or imagined). Featuring interdisciplinary and international contributions from medieval and modern period scholars with fresh academic perspectives, this volume constitutes a valuable resource for anyone with an interest in how and why the art of the Middle Ages was to play such an important role in forming and revising personal, national, and international identities in subsequent works of art and architecture.

The Memory of Tiresias

The Memory of Tiresias PDF Book Detail Author: Mikhail Iampolski
Publisher: Univ of California Press
ISBN: 9780520914728
Category : Performing Arts
Languages : en
Pages : 285

Book Description
The concept of intertextuality has proven of inestimable value in recent attempts to understand the nature of literature and its relation to other systems of cultural meaning. In The Memory of Tiresias, Mikhail Iamposlki presents the first sustained attempt to develop a theory of cinematic intertextuality. Building on the insights of semiotics and contemporary film theory, Iampolski defines cinema as a chain of transparent, mimetic fragments intermixed with quotations he calls "textual anomalies." These challenge the normalization of meaning and seek to open reading out onto the unlimited field of cultural history, which is understood in texts as a semiotically active extract, already inscribed. Quotations obstruct mimesis and are consequently transformed in the process of semiosis, an operation that Iampolski defines as reading in an aura of enigma. In a series of brilliant analyses of films by D.W. Griffith, Sergei Eisenstein, and Luis Buñuel, he presents different strategies of intertextual reading in their work. His book suggests the continuing centrality of semiotic analysis and is certain to interest film historians and theorists, as well as readers in cultural and literary studies.

Pages : 668

Book Description
This major reference work is the fourth volume in the series "Arthurian Literature in the Middle Ages". Its intention is to update the French and Occitan chapters in R.S. Loomis’ "Arthurian Literature in the Middle Ages: A Collaborative History" (Oxford, 1959) and to provide a volume which will serve the needs of students and scholars of Arthurian literature. The principal focus is the production, dissemination and evolution of Arthurian material in French and Occitan from the twelfth to the fifteenth century. Beginning with a substantial overview of Arthurian manuscripts, the volume covers writing in both verse (Wace, the Tristan legend, Chretien de Troyes and the Grail Continuations, Marie de France and the anonymous lays, the lesser known romances) and prose (the Vulgate Cycle, the prose Tristan, the Post-Vulgate Roman du Graal, etc.).

Book Description
Helmut Birkhan feiert seinen 60. Geburtstag, ein willekomen Anlaß, ihm diese Festschrift zu widmen. Seinen breitgefächerten Interessen Rechnung zu tragen, war die Grundidee, denn noch bevor die Begriffe «Interdisziplinarität» und «Mediävistik» in aller Munde waren, bestimmten sie die Haltung Helmut Birkhans. Daher der Untertitel «Grenzenlose Mediävistik», der sich angesichts des Birkhanschen Forschungseifers geradezu anbietet, wiewohl er manchen als Anmaßung erschien. Das große Ansehen, das Helmut Birkhan genießt, und die verschiedenen Disziplinen, in denen er tätig ist, lösten einen großen Zustrom von Beiträgen aus. Die einzelnen Artikel wurden in thematischen Gruppen zusammengefaßt.
