Summary
  • From Jean de Meun in the late 13th century to Christine de Pizan in the early 15th, medieval French poets often aimed to impart theological, philosophical, or moral ideas. Kay traces the works' backgrounds in scholastic thinking, illuminating them when appropriate with modern reflections on the same ideas
  • "From Jean de Meun in the late thirteenth century to Christine de Pizan in the early fifteenth, medieval French poets often aimed to impart theological, philosophical, or moral ideas. To unify their thought, and to make its outline visible to readers, the poets created vivid images of place such as gardens, paths, idyllic landscapes, cities, trees, and fountains. For Sarah Kay, these spatial images are a prop of "monologism," helping to communicate (or impose) unity of meaning and interpretation by summoning readers to occupy the same "place" in their thinking as the authors. Because of this monologism, Kay contends, didactic poetry has been ill served by a critical tradition that favors difference, plurality, and dialogism. In The Place of Thought, she seeks radically to reassess this literature and reappraise the pleasure to be derived from reading it."--BOOK JACKET
