"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.
