An article by Leticia Mercado, assistant professor of Spanish, was recently published by Emblematica: Essays in Word and Image (volume 2, Fall 2018). Titled “Sepulchral Space in Villamediana and Vaenius,” the study reads the textual construction of the sepulchral space in two ekphrastic sonnets written c. 1629 by Spanish Baroque poet Juan de Tassis, Count of Villamediana, in the light of three emblems in Otto Vaenius’s Quinti Horatii Flacci Emblemata (1607). The article explores how text-monument and emblem represent the tomb as the boundary where poetic voice and implicit reader confront the limits of language.
