Michel Foucault's analysis of the author as a variable function has led to the re-evaluation of authorship for a number of historical periods. This chapter considers several of the particulars of Foucault's argument and measures the book's own findings against them. The centrepiece of Foucault's essay is his four-point characterization of the author-function in Western literary culture. By exploring the extent to which these points are relevant to German narrative literature of the 13th century (1220-90), it should prove possible to view the workings of medieval authorship from a fresh perspective. The issues that Foucault highlights still represent the best frame of reference for any future objective comparison of data relating to authorship in different times and cultures.
I'm going to be honest. These are not exactly "rogue" style gauntlets. Realistically these are pure fantasy. They're built to looks scary. They are awkward, and clumsy to say the least. I can barely close my hand with them, let alone pick anything up. If we're thinking DnD rogues, like stealth / agility characters, they'd probably skip gloves all together. If they did, they would have half gloves, as to maintain finger dexterity, for picking locks, climbing and such rogue things. It's funny cause rogues are always depicted as have hoods and stuff, but I mean besides monks who else goes into public in robes?
reminds me of this guy..
