Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review


The purpose of this essay is to address the multimodal nature of Matt Kish’s project “Every Page of Moby-Dick, Illustrated”, where Herman Melville’s 1851 masterpiece is set as paratext. Particular focus is set on the portrayals of Captain Ahab, specifically “Page153”, “Page 465” and “Page 469”. The basic theoretical framework has been offered by Alice Gibbons’ theorization of multimodal cognitive poetics and Sigrid Norris’ systematization of multimodal (inter)action. Useful insight has been lent by Sharon Cameron’s work on allegories of the body in Melville’s writing. The given analysis aims to pinpoint the elements of innovation in Kish’s work with respect to the canonical formal features of the illustrated book and renewing of literary classics in multimodal terms.
