Description du produit

Revue de presse

"I have been looking at medieval illuminations for years, but after reading what Mary Carruthers has to say about them (well illustrated by thirty reproductions) I can never look at them in quite the same way again....A short review can do no more than scratch the surface of this profound book." Canadian Journal of History

"Mary Carruthers...has much enlarged our conception of memory in the Middle Ages....The Book of Memory is the work of a careful and erudite scholar, scrupulous and yet imaginative..." Times Literary Supplement

"The Book of Memory is not only a very fine ethnographic study of folk psychology and an exemplary study of material culture (medieval books), but also a very significant contribution to general anthropological theory." Man

"...a delightful and erudite presentation on the role of memoria, or memory, in the Middle Ages." Elwood E. Mather III, The Sixteenth Century Journal

"Mary Carruthers has presented a detailed study of the importance of memory to the preservation and transmission of knowledge and written material. She also gives us an important insight into the relationship between writing and orality....This book is excellent is a specialized book in a neglected field of study." Elmer Clark, History

"Just as memory was fundamental to the Middle Ages, Mary Carruthers's The Book of Memory will be fundamental to our understanding and teaching of medieval mentalité. Rather than asking who needs Carruther's book when Frances Yates's The Art of Memory, written from a Renaissance perspective, has served scholars since 1966, I would wonder who can do without it. Carruthers's documentation of the layout of medieval memory and of books as both echoes of and aids to memory formation deserves the attention of all serious students of the history of ideas....Though Carruthers positions her work with respect to Yates's scholarship, she supersedes it. Scholars from all disciplines who have sought support in Frances Yates will want to enlarge their conception of medieval books and their rememberers by consulting Mary Carruthers's The Book of Memory." Elaine E. Whitaker, South Atlantic Review

"Carruthers has done a great service by providing so lucid and authoritative an account of medieval memory systems." Modern Language Quarterly

"This is an excellent and important book, and like all good works of scholarship it has major implications beyond the subject matter actually treated by the author....This book will open up new, historically focused ways of understanding reading and writing in the Middle Ages as social practices based on educational objectives and cultural assumptions quite different from our own. As I was reading, I saw many ways to apply Carruther's arguments to Old and Middle English poetical codices and to the works of Dante, Chaucer, Langland, and Gower. The Book of Memory opens a door to future research that I hope many scholars and students will pass through." Martin Irvine, Modern Philology

"Of making many books there is no end, but for some books we are continually grateful. Occasionally, we find a book that opens up a whole new vista, a work so solidly organized and so carefully detailed that it immediately becomes a standard reference book. Mary Carruthers's The Book of Memory is that sort of book." Joyce Sutphen, Rhetoric Society Quarterly --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Présentation de l'éditeur

Mary Carruthers's classic study of the training and uses of memory for a variety of purposes in European cultures during the Middle Ages has fundamentally changed the way scholars understand medieval culture. This fully revised and updated second edition considers afresh all the material and conclusions of the first. While responding to new directions in research inspired by the original, this new edition devotes much more attention to the role of trained memory in composition, whether of literature, music, architecture, or manuscript books. The new edition will reignite the debate on memory in medieval studies and, like the first, will be essential reading for scholars of history, music, the arts and literature, as well as those interested in issues of orality and literacy (anthropology), in the working and design of memory (both neuropsychology and artificial memory), and in the disciplines of meditation (religion).

All books by Mary Carruthers are great overviews of the topic and show a few techniques at memorization. The purpose of the book is not to teach the methods but rather place it in a cultural and historical perspective.

A dense read, but a good one. Carruthers helps us understand how seemingly mechanical mnemotechnics were really the cornerstone of a whole way of approaching thought, imagination, and creativity. If the past is a foreign country, then this book is a guided tour through an exotic landscape.

This book is very useful, but "the craft of thought" is much better! Reading this book is a pleasure.
Imagination really depends on memory!
