Sample text

Incidentally, this cluster also builds a bridge to art history, in its reflection of the reading methods employed in the first cluster. Louise Vasvári’s essay underlines the key place occupied by orality, as exemplified by the perversion of proverbs in the text. The triangle she describes involves the actual proverbs, their perversions and the poem’s simultaneous occupation of oral and written space. Her piece, which is an outstanding study of multivalence and heteroglossia in itself, in addition provides the perfect and necessary backdrop to the subsequent essays precisely by its foregrounding of the oral dimensions, not only of the El libro de buen amor, but of the various genres in which that text participates (in this case, Hadit§ Bayà∂ wa Riyà∂ and Kalila wa Dimnah).

The Mongol’s actual difference is in fact his slave status, under which guise most Mongols were present on Iberian soil; Iberian texts, however, multiply this identity in order to populate the imaginary realm with conquerors, infidels and even the Antichrist. Such a gaze without broadens our panorama beyond the triangle composed of Jew-Muslim-Christian. Our collection therefore invites scholars to look outward from Iberian objects and texts toward the rest of the medieval world within a comparative frame of reference that understands the Iberian cultural reality not as composite but as fused: not a case of simple hybridity, but one of complex fusion.
