How did the Old-Polish flesh read written texts? On somatic experiences of the reading exercise
Languages of publication
The subject of this sketch is Old-Polish literary accounts of somatic experience of the process of reading. The quantitatively modest resources available have been tentatively set in order by physiological reactions generated through a message, a carrier and the circumstances determining the act of reading. Attention is drawn to how the issue is immersed in a medical and paramedical discourse, a trait so characteristic to early periods: from humanistic reading addictions to healing effects of ludic literature, the latter being particularly appreciated in the landed-gentry writers' circle.
