Essays presented to Roy Eriksen

The essays in this volume are mostly devoted to literature and visual art of the Italian Renaissance, and its northern diffusion in England and Scandinavia. They concern chiefly various forms of relationship between literature and visual art, with theatre as a central form of mediation and a focus for the social relevance of the arts in early modern society. The volume has three sections, devoted to visual art, literature and later reflections on Humanist culture, from the eighteenth to the twentieth century. The essays give a representative picture of approaches to the arts in the Renaissance, and the motives for their cultural centrality. They also show a rich diversity of modes of word-image studies.
