Mimesis has lengthy been pointed out as a key inspiration within the exploration of the connection among paintings and fact. during this significant research Arne Melberg discusses the speculation and heritage of mimesis via research of texts by way of Plato, Cervantes, Rousseau and Kierkegaard, and brings mimesis as an idea into the context of the literary theories of de guy and others. This strenuously argued account of language and time charts the stream of mimesis from the Platonic philosophy of similarity to fashionable rules of distinction.
