Abstract

The fact that Cavlacanti?s friend, Dante Alighieri, was a supremely fine poet ought not blind us to Cavalcanti?s own, rather different excellence. Both men were attracted to the dolce stil nuovo, the ?sweet new style? that emerged in thirteenth-century Florence. While Dante?s poetry was devoted to his childhood sweetheart, Beatrice, Cavalcanti?s poetry had more the tang of real-world experience: he struggled against unruly passions and sought instead to overcome love ? a source of torment and despair. It is chiefly through the translations of Rossetti and Pound that English-speaking readers have encountered Cavalcanti?s work. Pound?s famous translation, now viewed by some as antiquated, is remarkably different from the translation provided here in the graceful voice of poet David Slavitt. Working under the significant restraints of Cavalcanti?s elaborate formal structures, Slavitt renders an English translation faithful to the original poetry in both rhyme and rhythm.

Abstract

Temptation in the Archives is a collection of essays by Lisa Jardine, that takes readers on a journey through the Dutch Golden Age. Through the study of such key figures as Sir Constantjin Huygens, a Dutch polymath and diplomat, we begin to see the Anglo-Dutch cultural connections that formed during this period against the backdrop of unfolding political events in England. Temptation in the Archives paints a picture of a unique relationship between the Netherlands and England in the 17th century forged through a shared experience – and reveals the lessons we can learn from it today.

Abstract

Quelle est la vision du monde des médecins universitaires du XVIe siècle, imbus d’une tradition de la médecine qui remonte à l’Antiquité ? Comment cette vision se rapporte-elle à l’épistémè de la similitude, propre selon Michel Foucault à la Renaissance ? Cet ouvrage entreprend de répondre à ces questions en éclairant les concepts médicaux de la nature, de l’homme, de la santé, et de la maladie ; en examinant la logique des médecins, et leurs rapports quasi judiciaires sur les cas insolites (...

Abstract

This book focuses on one of the prime movers in the unification of Lunigiana – a region which at the time was still broken up into a myriad of tiny feudal holdings, almost all in the hands of the various branches of the Malaspina family. The process of unification began in the fifteenth century, when various areas of the region were conquered by Milan and Florence, which also divided between them the hegemony of the remaining independent territories, while Genoa too displayed an interest in expansion in the region. As a result it became crucial for the local lords to manoeuvre between the various forces at play to maintain the independence of their own little states. Among the figures who displayed the greatest dexterity in this was Gabriele Malaspina, who became a leading player on the stage of local history. The book starts by illustrating the period in which Malaspina succeeded in obtaining his political independence, and then goes on to analyse the phase in which his policy came to be characterised by an absolute loyalty to Florence. Finally the book addresses the last part of the Marquis's life, marked by a progressive distancing from the Florentine alliance in favour of other entities, in which he nevertheless always succeeded in maintaining his independence.

Abstract

À la Renaissance, les inventions techniques comme la boussole, les lunettes ou l'imprimerie, mais aussi les cabinets de curiosité, les monstres, les merveilles ou les grotesques fascinent les esprits. Les amateurs de surprise et de nouveauté se recrutent aussi bien parmi les souverains et leur cour que parmi les lettrés, les humanistes, ou dans le peuple épris de fêtes et de spectacles. Les récits de voyages, les jardins, les réalisations architecturales qui se multiplient alors donnent l'imp...

Abstract

Cet ouvrage est le fruit de travaux interdisciplinaires où les auteurs apportent un éclairage original sur ces questions complémentaires que sont à la Renaissance l'Histoire et le Secret, la Mémoire et la Dissimulation, également abordées à partir de leur face visible ou cachée, l'ostentation, le silence ou l'oubli. L'entrelacs de ces diverses notions permet d'interroger l'histoire politique et idéologique, l'organisation de l'activité économique, le domaine de l'esthétique mais aussi l'imagi...

Abstract

Le mot ""Renaissance"" est une source intarissable de malentendus. Il suggère, tout à la fois, une ère nouvelle et le rétablissement d'une situation antérieure, la métamorphose et le retour du même. De là découlent des ambiguïtés que rien ne souligne mieux que les multiples façons dont l'époque qui a reçu ce nom réagit à l'idée même de la nouveauté. On serait tenté de croire qu'elle lui fit bon accueil. Il semble qu'il n'en fut rien. Placée par une longue et prestigieuse historiographie sous le...
