CitationLevy, Isabelle Charlotte. 2014. The Poetics of Love in Prosimetra across the Medieval Mediterranean. Doctoral dissertation, Harvard University.
AbstractWritten as prose began to garner attention in literary cultures that had long privileged poetic composition, prosimetra offer a unique perspective on what authors in eleventh-century al-Andalus and thirteenth- and fourteenth-century Spain and Italy singled out as the special capabilities of poetry. Further, as the only shared theme across mixed-form texts in Arabic, Hebrew, Italian, and Spanish, love acts as a go-between across these varied literary traditions.
