Focusing on "The Midnight," this essay investigates the challenging case of Susan Howe’s 'imagetexts,' which offer new combinations of different codes within the traditional genres of ekphrasis, emblem and illustrated books. Analyzing textual variants, through the recovery of the earlier editions of its collected texts, special attention is given to the complex visual apparatus of "Bed Hangings," enriched by the contribution of visual artist Susan Bee, and to the photographic material of "Kidnapped"/"Scare Quotes."

Abstract

Focusing on "The Midnight," this essay investigates the challenging case of Susan Howe’s 'imagetexts,' which offer new combinations of different codes within the traditional genres of ekphrasis, emblem and illustrated books. Analyzing textual variants, through the recovery of the earlier editions of its collected texts, special attention is given to the complex visual apparatus of "Bed Hangings," enriched by the contribution of visual artist Susan Bee, and to the photographic material of "Kidnapped"/"Scare Quotes."
