Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jeremy Tambling offers students a concise history and critical commentary on 'allegory' from its prominence in Medieval and Renaissance literature through to the Romantic era and up to the present day.

Synopsis:

Indispensable to an understanding of Medieval and Renaissance texts and a topic of controversy for the Romantic poets, allegory remains a site for debate and controversy in the twenty-first-century.

In this useful guide, Jeremy Tambling:

  • presents a concise history of allegory, providing numerous examples from Medieval forms to the present day
  • considers the relationship between allegory and symbolism
  • analyses the use of allegory in modernist debate and deconstruction, looking at critics such as Walter Benjamin and Paul de Man
  • provides a full glossary of technical terms and suggestions for further reading.

Allegory offers an accessible, clear introduction to the history and use of this complex literary device. It is the ideal tool for all those seeking a greater understanding of texts that make use of allegory and of the significance of allegorical thinking to literature.
