Inopem me copia fecit: signes of Narcissus in Augustine's Confessions.
|Author:||Laurie J. CHURCHILL|
|Notes:||Augustine's narrative at Confessions I,18; IV,4,6, and 11; VIII,7; XIII,15, evokes the figures of Narcissus not only because of its emphasis on the attraction to apparance rather than substance and the dangers of self-love, but also because it illustrates that "fallen" language predisposes humans to confuse signifier with signified.|
