Description

In Dreams, Visions, and the Rhetoric of Authority, John Bickley explores the ways dreams and visions in literature function as authorizing devices, both affirming and complicating a text's authority. After providing a framework for categorizing the diverse genres and modes of dream and vision texts, Bickley demonstrates how the theme of authority and strategies for textual self-authorization play out in four highly influential works: the Book of Daniel, Macrobius's Commentary on the Dream of Scipio, Julian of Norwich's Revelations of Love, and Chaucer's Hous of Fame.

Among his scholarly works, Bickley has published entries for Southern Writers: A New Biographical Dictionary, co-authored an introduction and bibliographical material for the Penguin Classics edition of Joel Chandler Harris's Nights with Uncle Remus (2003), and contributed to a casebook on Woody Allen.
