Text/image Mosaics in French Culture: Emblems and Comic Strips

Front Cover
Ashgate, 2005 - Literary Criticism - 187 pages
0 Reviews
This study compares text/image interaction as manifested in emblem books (and related forms) and the modern bande dessinée, or French-language comic strip. It moves beyond the issue of defining the emblematic genre to examine the ways in which emblems, and their modern counterparts, interact with the surrounding culture, and what they disclose about that culture. Grove's analysis and historical contextualization provide insight into our own popular culture forms, not only the comic strip but also other hybrid media such as advertising and the Internet.
