Das fremde Schöne

Dimensionen des Ästhetischen in der Literatur des Mittelalters

[The Foreign Beauty: Aesthetic Dimensions in Medieval Literature]

Ed. by Braun, Manuel / Young, Christopher John

Series:Trends in Medieval Philology 12

    Aims and Scope

    The concept of the aesthetic is a modern one, not however the phenomenon of the aesthetic. Thus the collected papers in this volume set out to discover important dimensions of the aesthetic in medieval literature. In this endeavour they inquire into the relationship of aesthetics and religion as well as into that between aesthetics and rhetoric, and they search for relevant concepts and modes of presentation in the literary texts themselves. These various components combine to form an ‘aesthetics of alterity’.
