Summary
"From Shakespeare's "green-eyed monster" to the "green Thought in a green Shade" in Andrew Marvell's "The Garden," the color green was curiously prominent and resonant in English culture of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries." "A unique cultural history, The Key of Green considers the significance of the color in the literature, visual arts, and popular culture of early modern England." "Contending that color is a matter of both sensation and emotion, Bruce R. Smith examines Renaissance material culture - including tapestries and clothing, among other things - as well as music, theater, philosophy, and nature through the lens of sense perception and aesthetic pleasure. At the same time, Smith offers a highly sophisticated meditation on the nature of consciousness, perception, and emotion that will resonate with students and scholars of the early modern period and beyond. Like the key to a map, The Key of Green provides a guide for looking, listening, reading, and thinking that restores the aesthetic considerations to criticism that have been missing for too long."--Jacket
