讲座内容:

 

Ekphrasis is the original form of intermediality between literature and art, as in the famous description of Achilles’ shield in Homer’s Iliad. What sort of textuality emerges, however, when the object of description is landscape, the earth, which itself is conceived as having both stories to tell and forces and resources that shape narrative and language? This talk compares this ekphrasis of the earth as it shapes three texts set in the deserts of the American Southwest: Mary Austin’s Land of Little Rain (1903); Joy Harjo/Stephen Strom’s Secrets from the Center of the World (1989); and Nicole Brossard’s Mauve Desert (Désert mauve 1987).
