9780521862295: The Cambridge Companion to Allegory (Cambridge Companions to Literature)

Allegory is a vast subject, and its knotty history is daunting to students and even advanced scholars venturing outside their own historical specializations. This Companion will present, lucidly, systematically, and expertly, the various threads that comprise the allegorical tradition over its entire chronological range. Beginning with Greek antiquity, the volume shows how the earliest systems of allegory developed in poetry dealing with philosophy, mystical religion, and hermeneutics. Once the earliest histories and themes of the allegorical tradition have been presented, the volume turns to literary, intellectual, and cultural manifestations of allegory through the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The essays in the last section address literary and theoretical approaches to allegory in the modern era, from reactions to allegory in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to reevaluations of its power in the thought of the twentieth century and beyond.

Book Description:

This book traces the development of allegory in the European and American tradition from antiquity to the modern era. The essays explore allegory as a literary practice in poetry and fiction, as a technique of interpreting sacred and philosophical texts, and as an important element of modern literary theory.

About the Author:

Rita Copeland is Professor of Classical Studies and English and Chair of Comparative Literature at the University of Pennsylvania.

Peter Struck is Associate Professor of Classical Studies and serves on the graduate faculties of Religious Studies and Comparative Literature at the University of Pennsylvania.
