“Reflections on a myth”: Reading text and image in a new perspective

Forskningsoutput: KonferensbidragKonferensabstract

Abstract

Paragone is a well-known and often applied category to discuss the interrelationship of the Sister Arts. However, it does not seem to be a sufficient label to respond to the general questions raised about representation, mimesis and identity brought together in the postmodern intermedial writing of The Matisse Stories (1993), by A.S. Byatt, which was influenced by French avant-garde literature and visual arts. Therefore, I propose the integration of the reader as a third part by drawing on the peritextual design as well as on circumtextual and intratextual frames. Such an alternative allows me to anchor an emblematic tradition of perceiving the materialised form of the printed book that in postmodern rhetoric plays both with the interdependency of text-image and their contextual relationship along with the Sister Arts and their marginalised little brothers.
