Abstract:
Chapter 1 investigates the metaphor of the text as a body. It is split into sections devoted to the structural analogy between a work and a body (1.2); the application to literary style of corporeal properties such as fatness or thinness, blood and muscles, and gender (1.3.1-3); the metaphor of stylistic features as clothes or other adornments (1.4); the opposite image, of a body as a work of literature (1.5); and the reasons for this imagery.
