The Emblematic Queen PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Emblematic Queen free pdf The lives and literary afterlives of queens consort and regnant were of considerable interest for their early modern contemporaries. References to these women appeared frequently as what have been referred to as 'extra-literary' emblematics, including paintings, jewelry, miniature portraits, carvings, placards, masques, and funerary monuments. Objects such as these were also represented through intertextual allusions in emblematic miscellany collections, mythographic works, and other prominent source materials of the time. Studied together, these ubiquitous aspects of material culture offer genuinely new avenues to understanding how early modern queens negotiated their political power within male-dominated societies. The interdisciplinary analyses gathered here range across art, literature, history, and cultural studies to illustrate just how pervasive emblematic references were in both material culture and the in development of unique identities.
