Product Description
Customer Reviews
La fisiognomía es una disciplina que interpreta el aspecto exterior de los seres humanos (y a veces, de animales) para sacar conclusiones acerca de su carácter, disposición y destino. Los trabajos de investigación sobre la fisiognomía de la época medieval y áurea son relativamente escasos, seguramente también porque para analizar la textualización de determinadas prácticas fisiognómicas es indispensable rastrear qué tratados fisiognómicos circulaban entonces en España y estaban al alcance de autores y lectores.<br />La obra de Folke Gernert, Lecturas del cuerpo, aborda por primera vez la importancia de la fisiognomía en el Renacimiento y el siglo XVII español; la variedad de aspectos implicados en el estudio fisiognómico: modelos clásicos y medievales, los debates sobre su fundamentación científica o médica, sus conexiones con otras ramas del saber, etc. Todo ello sin perder de vista la importación del saber fisiognómico en la literatura, analizando su aparición en diferentes géneros literarios: poesía, teatro y ficción caballeresca. Y con la mirada puesta en los manuales publicados en Europa en la Baja Edad Media y en la Edad Moderna.<br />Estamos ante una obra con un enfoque interdisciplinar y transversal, que abre prometedoras y nuevas vías de estudios.<br />
