Letteratura e cultura visuale. Stato dell’arte e qualche minima proposta

Federico Fastelli


This essay briefly summarizes the state of art on research about the relationship between Visual Culture and Literary Studies. It aims to exemplify the main critical consequences the methodological acquisitions of visual culture studies could bring on the literary discourse. In this sense, the main reflections on ékphrasis, iconotexts, iconisms and scopic regimes are discussed, and a paradigmatic sampling of theories (from W.J.T. Mitchell to G. Boehm) is proposed.
