Conduct Books in the Renaissance
49,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book accompanies the reader for an adventurous imaginary journey from the Renaissance Urbin in Italy to the Puritan era in England. The reader can observe the process under which Castiglione' perfect Courtier evolves into an English gentleman. Indeed the topic of this book is the transformation of Castiglione's book in English literature, the amusing development by which Castiglione's book became a classic English volume and how Castiglione's perfect Courtier became a model for centuries to European nobility. The author analyzes the original Italian book, Baldassare Castiglione's Il libro del cortegiano and Sir Thomas Hoby's translation The Book of the Courtier which had a crucial role in this transformation. The topics of the second part of this volume are the pioneering conduct books in the English Renaissance, those of Roger Ascham's The Schoolmaster and Sir Thomas Elyot's The Book named the Governor. After these two volumes the author explores the development of this genre in the seventeenth century analyzing the volume of Henry Peacham The Compleat Gentleman and that of the puritanical Richard Brathwait The English Gentleman.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.

Ramé was born in Bury St. Edmunds, England, to a Guernsey-born French-speaking father and an English mother. She derived her pen name from her own childish pronunciation of her given name "Louise". During her career, she wrote more than 40 novels, children's books and collections of short stories and essays. She was an animal lover and rescuer, and at times owned as many as thirty dogs.

The Shaping of English Poetry
70,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This collection of essays is conceived not as a summary of past endeavours but as the beginning of an attempt to present a sense of the wholeness of a distinctively English literature from Beowulf to Spenser. The native alliterative tradition of England is represented by its final flowering in two essays on Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and three on Piers Plowman . The renewal of English letters in the fourteenth century, inspired by continental models in French and Italian, is represented by four essays on Chaucer. The poetic achievement of these three medieval masters remains unmatched until Spenser announces himself in a third great age in the history of English poetry and this is represented by three essays on the first three books of The Faerie Queene . Spenser's indebtedness to Langland and Chaucer, and his philosophical conservatism in drawing on the thought of Aristotle and the tradition of medieval commentary surrounding the works of Aristotle, ensure that the tradition of English poetry in the Renaissance is securely rooted in its medieval inheritance.
