Deafness as self-representation of a 16th century poet

  • Marija-Ana Dürrigl (a1) and Stella Fatović-Ferenčić (a2)

Abstract

In his best poems, the Renaissance poet Sabo Bobljević Glušac emphasizes his hearing impairment, placing his deafness at the centre of attention. These works are not only a poignant expression of an individual artist's suffering, but they may also add to our understanding of the situation of deaf persons. This self-reflection can be seen as a detail that will enhance our ability to communicate with deaf people in order not only to help them hear us, but also to make us hear them as well.
