From the Middle Ages onward, writers, artists, and composers have evoked canonical works from the distant or more recent past, in some cases in order to demonstrate respect for tradition, in others merely to enrich their own productions. But whatever their reasons, they all, explains Citation, Intertextuality, and Memory in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, manipulated the memory of their readers. The essays in this multidisciplinary volume offer a wide array of scholarship on the role of memory and citation in the cultural output of the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries, examining both renowned and less well-known works from France, England, and Italy.
Yolanda Plumley is Professor of History at University of Exeter. Her background is in musicology, with a strongly interdisciplinary approach. Her study of the late medieval musical repertory is allied with an exploration of the literary and cultural production of the period and its historical context. Research to date has focussed particularly on French songs and lyrics of the fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries and on the culture that produced them. Giuliano di Bacco is Director of the Center for the History of Music Theory and Literature at Indiana University. A musicologist and medievalist, Giuliano Di Bacco works on polyphonic repertories and treatises of music theory of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries in Italy and France. His research deals with manuscripts and textual criticism, archival studies, and biographies, especially focussing on the musical chapels of the popes of the Great Schism, and the Ars nova in Italy and France.
