Word and Image in Literature and the Visual Arts


Usually ships within 6 days


The publication will investigate the multiple interactions between the written word and images. Literary works (drama, fiction, poetry, essays), films, photography and the fine arts will be studied with a comparative approach. The interrelationship between word and image will also be analyzed according to the various types of occurrences: ekphrasis (narrative description of artistic objects); imagology (stereotypical images, orientalism, exoticism); cultural, rhetorical and symbolic constructs (Shakespearian imagery); filmic, digital or televised transpositions and adaptations of literary works; intermediality (mixed media works). Moreover, another field of investigation explored will be the digital world (e-archives, blogs embedded in literary world, webliterature, twitterliterature, hypertexts).
