8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book will focus on competing claims about quicksilver eloquence, vatic inspiration, and hermeneutic skills among Renaissance poets, and upon choices that they made for their writing, their literary careers, and the professionalization of their craft. Its ground is the intersection of aesthetics and economics in European Renaissance poetry, and its principal actors are Francesco Petrarch, Gaspara Stampa, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Pierre de Ronsard and William Shakespeare"--Introduction

The proud highway : saga of a desperate southern gentleman, 1955-1967 by Hunter S Thompson( Book )

2 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first volume of the Fear and Loathing Letters begins with a high school essay written in 1955 - when Hunter S. Thompson was a wise (perhaps too wise) teenager in Louisville - and takes us through 1967, when the publication of Hell's Angels made the author an international celebrity (and nearly resulted in his death). In the intervening years, Thompson's prolific and often profound correspondence gives us an unforgettable vista of the America of the Eisenhower and Kennedy years as well as an authoritative introduction to the cultural revolution of the sixties. With a vicious eye for detail, a rude wit, and a brutal take on any and all pretenders, Thompson's missiles pierce pomposity and rattle the soul. Whether written to his mother, Virginia, or to such luminaries as Charles Kuralt, Philip Graham, Norman Mailer, Tom Wolfe, Carey McWilliams, Lyndon Johnson, and Joan Baez, the letters represent the evolution of an American original, a singular voice defying an era of banality

Divine comedy image archive( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Divine Comedy Image Archive (DCIA) is a repository of scanned images from illustrated editions of Dante Alighieri's poem found in the Fiske Dante Collection, Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections, Cornell University Library. These images derive from editions of The Divine Comedy published from the Incunabula period (ending in 1500) through the early twentieth century. All the images in the DCIA are from titles presumed by their age to reside in the public domain. The DCIA project envisions the inclusion of approximately 2000 images from the most significant illustrated editions of The Divine Comedy. Most of these illustrations are engraving--woodcut, copper or steel--and vary considerably in original size, quality of execution and style

Storytelling as Preaching in Marguerite de Navarre's Heptameron by Antonio Joaquim De Ridder( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

My first chapter, "Four Frames for a Portrait of a Patient Wife," looks at Marguerite de Navarre as part of the broad historical community of European framed short fiction writers, comparing her work to that of Giovanni Boccaccio, Francesco Petrarca, and Geoffrey Chaucer. While no Heptaméron character goes by the name of "Griselda," this famous heroine - or her closest analogs - turn out to leave peculiar traces in the frame-structure of the Decameron and the Canterbury Tales as well as the Heptaméron. Extreme examples of female submission to male authority like Griselda's serve to expose fissures in patriarchal ideology, although different framed-novella writers are more or less prepared to face the implications of those aporia. While previous studies have analyzed the Cent nouvelles nouvelles as an example of iconographic and hyperbolic male homosocial domination, my second chapter shows that the Heptaméron's recycling of the earlier book's "Katherine/Conrard" as "Rolandine" illustrates a process by which the invisible male storytellers of the Cent nouvelles nouvelles become the male chauvinist devisants of the Heptaméron, while iconographic transformations in Cent nouvelles nouvelles 26 find their textual descendants in Heptaméron 21's intergeneric transformations. My third chapter addresses the Heptaméron's attempts to answer the arguments of the all-male preaching communities that the historical Marguerite de Navarre could favor or counter at court but never directly debate. In taking up some of the themes of preachers like Aimé Meigret (an early reformer imprisoned for heresy whose sole surviving sermon was probably printed at Marguerite's behest) and François Le Picart (a steadfast opponent of the Reformation who was imprisoned for branding Marguerite and her husband Henri de Navarre), the Heptaméron's frame-characters chart an alternative predicant path. Their preaching activities, in which men and women take equal part, are an example of fiction literature leading the history of ideas. Marguerite employed dozens of preachers during her lifetime, but only in the imaginary storytelling world she created could women like herself fully assert their views on theological issues, pointing towards a more open and honest Christian community freed from the male monopoly on preaching
