Emerson, Catherine. (2017). Setting a Place in the Cent Nouvelles nouvelles: The Illustrations of Glasgow, Hunter 252. RELIEF - Revue Électronique de Littérature Française, 11(1), 82-95. doi: http://doi.org/10.18352/relief.953
Reading MS Hunter 252 as a performance, this article examines the way that the manuscript s illustrations enhance the spatial element of the collection. The case of tale 65 is examined in particular to show how the illustration of an identifiable place contributes to the tale. The illustration sets up multiple interrelations between different levels of diegesis, different spaces on the page and different stories in the collection to implicate the spectator (the viewer or reader) in the manuscript s performance.
