Weaving the Crusades: Entrelacement and Visual Poetics in Tasso's Liberata

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

While the field of Tasso studies has moved beyond old binaries of Ariosto versus Tasso to examine the extent to which Tasso at once adopted and effaced Ariosto's narratological strategies, the totem of Ariostan poetics--entrelacement--has not been similarly rehabilitated. Yet, when construed not simply as a symptom of romance but a mechanism for storytelling, interlacement is found to pervade Gerusalemme liberata. Tasso's usage at once resembles that of the Furioso (e.g., the juxtaposition of protagonists, the blurring of generic boundaries, etc.), but also profoundly alters the representational possibilities of epic by restructuring interlacement's mechanisms, as his characters--through their senses, movements and thoughts--interlace themselves. I will concentrate on the strategy of sight, highlighting its affinities with the emerging aesthetic of enargeia, to show that Tasso's simultaneous adoption and radical refashioning of interlacement presents a powerful instance of Tasso's liminal position in a time of great cultural transition.
