Overview

"Writing for the Eyes offers a vision of possibilities to those who wish to study the intricate relations between the verbal and the visual during the Spanish Golden Age. Writing, during the early modern period, often had a strongly visual component.

Overview

"Writing for the Eyes offers a vision of possibilities to those who wish to study the intricate relations between the verbal and the visual during the Spanish Golden Age. Writing, during the early modern period, often had a strongly visual component. Poets and other writers of fiction appealed to this sense in particular since it was thought that visualization was key to memory. Furthermore, the sisterhood and competition between painting and poetry had an ancient heritage, one that writers of the Golden Age often evoked and emulated. Although the very notion of writing for the eyes was not new to the Spanish Golden Age, its ubiquitous presence during this period calls for rethinking of the traditional separation between the visual and the verbal in studies of Iberian culture." This collection of essays seeks to open up this complex interdisciplinary field of study by including essays on many aspects of visual writing in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spain.
