schema:description"Focusing on works by Shakespeare and Spenser, this study shows the connection between visuality and ethical action in early modern English literature. James A. Knapp places early modern debates about the value of visual experience into dialogue with subsequent philosophical and ethical efforts. Image Ethics in Shakespeare and Spenser is a study of the connection between visuality and ethical action in early modern English literature. Focusing on works by Shakespeare and Spenser, this book details varying attitudes toward the development of ethical human subjectivity at a moment when basic assumptions about perception and knowledge were breaking down. Knapp places early modern debates over the value of visual experience in determinations of truth and ethical action into dialog with subsequent (and on-going) philosophical efforts to articulate an ethics that accounts for visual experience."
schema:description""More than any other book in recent Renaissance studies, Knapp's makes a convincing case for the need to return to the riches of phenomenology, not for the sake of making the Renaissance 'relevant' to contemporary debates (although he does this admirably), but so that we can see the convergence of both periods on basic questions about the body, sympathy, reason, and vision - questions that have occupied philosophical and religious discourse for a very long time." - Michael Witmore, Professor of English, University of Wisconsin, Madison "Image Ethics in Shakespeare and Spenser represents a profound and thoughtful engagement with the drama of moral decision in Shakespeare and Spenser. Working with philosophical, theological, and scientific texts from both Renaissance letters and contemporary thought, Knapp movingly demonstrates the intimate role that mental and physical images play in an embedded and embodied ethics experienced in time. Throughout this book, Knapp reads Scripture not for dogmatic prescriptions but for phenomenological accounts of how we live and love through acts of looking." - Julia Reinhard Lupton, The University of California, Irvine."
