Notes from Harbus: The rhetoric of elegy and memory

From Harbus, Antonina. The Life of the Mind in Old English Poetry. Costerus New Series 143. Amsterdam: Rodopi, 2002.

"The semantic character of these texts shows clearly that the rhetoric of elegiac expression is idiomatically grounded i the mind, which is explicitly the site of apprehension, revisitation, and reprocessing of experience through memory" (132).
