Articulate Images: The Sister Arts from Hogarth to Tennyson
Articulate Images was first published in 1983. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.
Twenty-five years ago, Jean Hagstrum published a pioneering study, The Sister Arts,showing how the visual arts influenced the imagination of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century English poets. Hagstrum's book suggested the intimate (and sometimes troubled) relationship between poetry and painting, and, more than any other on the subject, provided a basis for subsequent development and refinement within this field of comparative studies. The nine original essays in Articulate Images address the central issues Hagstrum raised; they serve as an introduction to current approaches to the sister arts. Fully illustrated, Articulate Images will be enjoyed by readers entering the field as well as by seasoned votaries of the sister arts.
