Another Reality is a study of the philosophical implications of the literary theme of metamorphosis in the works of Ovid, Petrarch, and Ronsard. For these poets, metamorphosis becomes a means of expressing their scepticism towards repressive intellectual authority, of exploring the value and creative potential of their own subjectivity, and of developing new theories of the imagination. In the works of Ronsard in particular, the imagination becomes the mental faculty most significant for the production of poetry.

Review:

«This is truly original work in that it defines and investigates a large, important, and (so far as I am aware) virtually unexamined complex of questions. It is based on an excellent knowledge of Ovid, the Ovidian tradition, classical sources of skepticism (esp. Sextus Empiricus and Cicero), and the entire Renaissance poetic tradition.» (Edwin M. Duval, Yale University)
«...an excellent work. It shows thorough, sensitive familiarity with the three poets as well as with the literary contexts and conventions that shaped their writing. Professor Perry reads insightfully and draws original yet judicious conclusions from her material. She carefully develops metamorphosis as both a thematic and a structural element in the works of her three poets, then skillfully relates that concept to contemporary philosophical arguments. I expect that the book will be well-received by Renaissance scholars, classicists and specialists in poetry.» (Mary B. McKinley, University of Virginia)
«Parmi les nombreux ouvrages qui ont étudié la fortune et les avatars de ce texte fondateur de notre tradition que sont les 'Métamorphoses' d'Ovide, il conviendra désormais de mettre à part le livre de K.A. Perry pour son approche aussi originale que féconde. ... (L)e mérite de K.A. Perry (est) de parvenir, sans jamais forcer ni surdéterminer l'interprétation, à nous montrer et à nous démontrer comment une lecture moderne peut s'inscrire pour une grande part dans la formule ovidienne, laquelle ne se veut pas simplement et seulement une écriture de la métamorphose, mais aussi une écriture métamorphotique, une écriture en métamorphose... Mais on l'aura compris: c'est le mérite même du livre séduisant de K.A. Perry que d'ouvrir le problème des métamorphoses ovidiennes - trop souvent réduites à un rôle d'amusement ou au statut d'innocentes fictions poétiques - à l'ère du soupçon et du questionnement qu'implique la création littéraire, sans pour autant tomber dans l'illusion d'une modernité qui, on le découvre par ce livre, est en définitive contemporaine de son passé.» (Olivier Pot, Bibliothèque d'Humanisme et Renaissance)
