This introduction establishes some definitions for the multivalent terms “poetry,” “poetic,” and “poetics” as these are invoked in both medieval writings and the contemporary criticism that examines them. It discusses the intellectual legacy that Penn Szittya has bestowed upon his students, particularly his commitment to an interdisciplinary approach to the Middle Ages.

Keywords: medieval; poetics; Jan van Eyck; interdisciplinary
