Allegorical Imagery by Rosemond Tuve
How did the men of the sixteenth century read allegory? What distinguished this type of reading from other ways of reading. What pleasures did mediaeval and Renaissance men take from allegories How were the late mediaeval materials and their accompanying iconography passed down to the sixteenth century. To answer this question, the author has examined only those mediaeval texts which were 'to hand' for sixteenth-century use and reading, such as Christine de Pisan's Épitre d'Othea or Guillaum de Deguile ville's Pélerinage de la vie humaine.
