Trends in Medieval Philology #15: Philomela. Metamorphoses of a Myth in Medieval German and French Literature

Trends in Medieval Philology #15: Philomela. Metamorphoses of a Myth in Medieval German and French Literature Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For this, it also considers Ovid's Philomela and its after-life in its medieval adaptations. Working from the individual literary studies, content nodes of the myth are analysed and their variance presented comparatively. Particular weight is attached here to the motif of weaving, as this is accorded central significance within the Philomela myth.
