Word and Image in Literature and the Figurative Art (Paperback)
About this item
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).
