  1. 1. What Literature Can Make Us See : Poetry, Intermediality, Mental Imagery

    University dissertation from Lund : Bokbox förlag

    Author : Emma Tornborg; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2014]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Intermediality; mental imagery; poetry; Comparative literature; Litteraturvetenskap;

    Abstract : In this thesis I investigate what kind of mental imagery ekphrastic and pictorial poetry can evoke, how time is represented in this kind of poetry, and how readers experience the temporality it represents. Ekphrasis (a verbal representation of a static, visual, iconic representation) and pictorialism (a phenomenon that occurs when the reality of the fictive world, either psychological or physical, in the text is represented as image) are intermedial concepts: in various ways and to various degrees, ekphrastic and pictorial texts refer to and represent static, visual, iconic media such as painting, photography and sculpture.
