9780198151630: Recognitions: A Study in Poetics (Clarendon Paperbacks)

Anagnorisis--recognition--is one of the least familiar terms in Aristotelian poetics, yet it is used to describe one of the most familiar features of drama and narrative fiction. This invaluable study by leading Renaissance scholar Terence Cave is the first to trace the history of the term and to explore its role in French, German, and English literature as a continuing focus for theoretical reflection.

Recognitions is the first full-length study of a neglected term in Aristotelian poetics- anagnorisis, or recognition. Terence cave first traces the history of the term and explores the ways in which it continues to be a valuable focus for the theoretical reflection. The book demonstrates that recognition must be seen as a topic of the first importance, raising questions about literature and literary knowledge.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1990. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Recognitions is about the most neglected strand of Aristotelian poetics - anagnorisis, or recognition. It is a topic that has conventionally had a bad press: the recognition scene is regarded as an implausible contrivance, a feeble way of resolving a plot the author can no longer control. But why do such scenes occur in every kind of drama and narrative fiction from the Odyssey and Oedipus to thrillers by Le Carre - and how is it they continue to surprise, amuse, and disturb? Terence Cave s book first traces the history of the term anagnorisis and explores the ways in which it continues to be a valuable focus for theoretical reflection. Then, in a series of chapters analysing examples of recognition plots from English, French, and German literature, including Shakespeare, James, Conrad, Racine, Corneille, and Goethe, the book demonstrates how recognition must be seen as a topic of the first importance, perhaps the most strictly literary of all topics in poetics.
