Book Review in Vidimus – Oosterwijk & Knöll

on July 26, 2012

I have recently reviewed the following book for Vidimus:

S. Oosterwijk & S. Knöll, eds, Mixed Metaphors: The Danse Macabre in Early Modern Europe, Newcastle upon Tyne 2011.

Follow this link:

As the review notes: ‘This book consists of an innovative and informative collection of articles that examine the visual and textual motif of the Danse Macabre from its emergence in the late fourteenth century’.  It examines depictions of the Danse in various media (including wall painting).
