CHAUCER: VISUAL APPROACHES. Ed. by Susanna Fein and David Raybin. Pennsylvania State University Press, University Park, 2016. 328 pp. with 98 ills. (73 col.). 26 x 19 cm. LC 2016-18580 ISBN 9780271074801 In English.
Publisher's description: This collection of essays looks beyond the literary, religious, and philosophical aspects of Chaucer's texts to a new mode of interdisciplinary scholarship: one that celebrates the richness of Chaucer's visual poetics. The twelve illustrated essays in this volume make connections between Chaucer's texts and various forms of visual data, both medieval and modern. Basing their approach on contemporary understandings of interplay between text and image, the contributors examine a wealth of visual material, from medieval art and iconographical signs to interpretations of Chaucer rendered by contemporary artists. The result uncovers interdisciplinary potential that deepens and informs our understanding of Chaucer's poetry in an age in which digitization makes available a wealth of facsimiles and other visual resources. In part a commemoration of The Chaucer Review's fiftieth year, Chaucer: Visual Approaches is an important undertaking that opens exciting new paths of scholarship.
