Ealy Presents Paper and Publishes Peer-Reviewed Article
Nicholas Ealy, assistant professor of modern languages and cultures, A&S, presented a paper entitled “The Green Garden as Locus of Vision and Desire in Celestina” at the medieval and early-modern interdisciplinary studies conference “Geographies of Desire” held at the University of Maryland–College Park (April 27-28, 2012).
The paper forms part of a larger peer-reviewed article titled “Calisto’s Narcissistic Visions: A Reexamination of Melibea’s 'Ojos Verdes' in Celestina” and published in eHumanista, an online journal for medieval and early-modern Iberian studies. In the article, Ealy proposes a new means of reading that the green eyes (ojos verdes) of the female heroine of Celestina (1499), Spain’s most important literary work after Don Quijote. These green eyes, he argues, function as a complex symbol joining the psychophysiology of sight to the conflicted desire that both sustains and undermines the lead male’s amorous feelings.
