Description

In late-medieval dream visions (e.g., Chaucer’s House of Fame, Lydgate’s Temple of Glass), poetological and epistemological processes are frequently addressed within the framework of faculty psychology, that is, the ventricles of the brain. I am interested in the representation of these ventricles as households and attendant processes of household management, of oikonomia, with a view particularly to how different modes of household management affect the writing of poetry. Wolfram Keller is Visiting Professor at Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik at Humboldt-Universität, Berlin.
