Guided by the groundbreaking work of the late Daniel Poirion, medievalists have in recent years begun to reconsider assumptions about allegory, asserting that medieval allegory does not contain stable meaning or the whole truth but instead produces a play of illusions and an inexhaustible regression of mimetic figures. This volume, produced in memory of Poirion’s untimely passing, rereads allegory and explores its interpretive, cul-tural, theoretical, and political complexities.
