The Corporeality of Clothing in Medieval Literature: Cognition, Kinesis, and the Sacred

By Sarah Brazil

In this innovative study, Brazil demonstrates how medieval writers use clothing to direct readers’ and spectators’ awareness to forms of embodiment. By bringing recent studies in the field of embodied cognition to bear on narrated and dramatized interactions between dress and body, this book offers new methodological tools to the study of clothing.
