about this item

Art historians and scholars of literature formulate an account of personification to demonstrate the ingenuity with which late medieval and early modern authors and artists made use of the multifaceted device. They cover cognitive perspectives on personification; personification and the critical tradition; personification and the modalities of figuration; personification on stage: forces of living presence; Jesuit approaches to personification; personifying charity; personifying life and afterlife, trial, and retribution; personification and the assertion of allegorical order; and the four continents: sources and sentiments.
