Riassunto: This eloquent and evocative book explores that arresting moment encountered in film, theater, and literature: a statue steps down off its pedestal and comes to life as lover, oracle, avenger, or monster. What does it mean for the statue that stands immobile in gallery or square to step down from its pedestal or speak out of its silence? What is it in this fantasy that animates us?
Kenneth Gross is also the author of Spenserian Poetics: Idolatry, Iconoclasm, and Magic (1985), Shakespeare's Noise (2001), and Shylock is Shakespeare (forthcoming in 2006). He teaches English at the University of Rochester.
