9780521624503: The Rhetoric of the Body from Ovid to Shakespeare (Cambridge Studies in Renaissance Literature and Culture)

This persuasive book describes the complex, often violent connections between body and voice in Ovid's Metamorphoses and narrative, lyric and dramatic works by Petrarch, Marston and Shakespeare. Lynn Enterline analyzes what happens when Renaissance authors revisit Ovid's stories of violence and desire, paying close attention to the ways in which his subversive representations of gender, sexuality and the body influence later conceptions of the self and erotic life. This vividly original book makes a profound contribution to the study of Ovid's presence in Renaissance literature.

Review:

"Lynn Enterline's The Rhetoric of the Body from Ovid to Shakespeare is a subtle, sophisticated, and lucid essay on the Ovidian tradition. Particularly impressive is the clarity and magisterial logic with which she sets complex issues in relation to each other, through extraordinarily nuanced readings. No one has done a better job of mapping the intersection of Ovidianism and Petrarchanism and their bearing on Elizabethan literature." Leonard Barkan

"This is a theoretically yet compact book, one that should inspire those scholars interested in contemporary critical theory, especially feminism and psychoanalysis, as well as those who study the Renaissance imitation of the classics and those interested in the rhetoric of sex and desire." Renaissance and Reformation

"...Enterline grasps Ovid's art of poetic composition with new specificity and exactness." Choice

Book Description Cambridge University Press. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW PRINT ON DEMAND., The Rhetoric of the Body from Ovid to Shakespeare, Lynn Enterline, This persuasive book analyses the complex, often violent connections between body and voice in Ovid's Metamorphoses and narrative, lyric and dramatic works by Petrarch, Marston and Shakespeare. Lynn Enterline describes the foundational yet often disruptive force that Ovidian rhetoric exerts on early modern poetry, particularly on representations of the self, the body and erotic life. Paying close attention to the trope of the female voice in the Metamorphoses, as well as early modern attempts at transgendered ventriloquism that are indebted to Ovid's work, she argues that Ovid's rhetoric of the body profoundly challenges Renaissance representations of authorship as well as conceptions about the difference between male and female experience. This vividly original book makes a vital contribution to the study of Ovid's presence in Renaissance literature. Bookseller Inventory # B9780521624503
