9789004243699: Imago Mortis: Mediating Images of Death in Late Medieval Culture (Visualising the Middle Ages)

In Imago Mortis: Mediating Images of Death in Late Medieval Culture, Ashby Kinch argues for the affirmative quality of late medieval death art and literature, providing a new, interdisciplinary approach to a well-known body of material. He demonstrates the surprising and effective ways that late medieval artists appropriated images of death and dying as a means to affirm their artistic, social, and political identities. The book dedicates each of its three sections to a pairing of a visual convention (deathbed scenes, the Three Living and Three Dead, and the Dance of Death) and a Middle English literary text (Hoccleve's Lerne for to die, Audelay's Three Dead Kings, and Lydgate's Dance of Death).

About the Author:

Ashby Kinch, Ph.D (2000) is Professor of English at The University of Montana. He has co-edited a book and published several articles on Alain Chartier, as well as numerous articles on medieval death art and Middle English literature.

Review:

"Kinch's work has refreshed our sense of the potential of this fascinating field and has placed at our disposal a new range of objects and ideas."                               
                                                                                                    --Paul Binksi (review in Speculum)


"The vivid writing is stylistically superb throughout...This truly enjoyable monograph promises to redefine our understanding of late-medieval death culture and richly deserves to be read widely." 
                                                                                                    --Steve Rozenski (review in Anglia)
