Imago Mortis: Mediating Images of Death in late Medieval Culture

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


. This book (308 pp.) consists of case studies examining the relationship between verbal and visual forms of three late medieval visual conventions of death and dying. The book focuses on how three Middle English authors (Thomas Hoccleve, John Audelay, and John Lydgate) conceive of their poetic projects, which in turn serve to gloss or interpret the personal, moral, social, and political meaning of death for themselves and for their readers.
