Guido Cavalcanti : the other Middle Ages by Maria Luisa Ardizzone( )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Guido Cavalcanti (d. 1300) is one of the greatest Italian poets of all time. His legacy consists of some fifty poems, of which his canzone on the nature of love, Donna me Prega, is the most famously difficult and complex. The poem is important not only because it sheds light on fundamental intellectual debates during the time of Dante, but also because of its influence on generations of poets and intellectuals. In this study, Maria Luisa Ardizzone sets Donna me Prega in an entirely new light - first, by examining its role in Cavalcanti's poetic practice, and second, by placing it in the context of ancient and medieval science and philosophy. The book deals with issues that are part of the intellectual history of Europe in the thirteenth century. Cavalcanti's work is interpreted by reconstructing the debate of ideas in which it participates, and the new model of poetry devised by Cavalcanti is one of the subjects of this book."--Jacket
Reading as the angels read : speculation and politics in Dante's Banquet by Maria Luisa Ardizzone( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An uncompleted manuscript that combines lyric poetry and prose commentary, the Banquet (or Convivio) is one of Dante Alighieri's most important and least understood philosophical texts. As Maria Luisa Ardizzone shows, its language and logic are deeply connected to medieval culture and the philosophical debates of the thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries. In Reading as the Angels Read, Ardizzone reconstructs the cultural and socio-political background that provided the motivation for the Banquet and offers a bold new reading of this ambitious work. Drawing on a deep knowledge of Dante's engagement with biblical, Augustinian, Neoplatonic, and Aristotelian philosophy, she suggests that the Banquet is not an encyclopedia of learning as many have claimed, but Dante's attempt to articulate a theory of human happiness in which perfect knowledge is the natural basis for a well-organized political community."--
Machine art and other writings : the lost thought of the Italian years : essays by Ezra Pound( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume address Pound's diverse aesthetic concerns, including his Vorticism and his criticism of Western metaphysics, his advancement of the machine as a new criterion for beauty, his encounter with the German Bauhaus movement, and his search for a type of writing ruled by mathematical rather than grammatical laws. Machine Art and Other Writings documents the wide proportions of Pounds's polemic against the abstractions of modernism and reveals the extent to which he was at odds with the metaphysical assumptions of his time. The volume, edited by Ardizzone, is the result of years of systematic and intensive study of Pound's manuscripts, including glosses from the texts of his personal library. Proposing an unconventional approach to Pound studies that focuses on marginality and intertextuality, she subverts the canonical hierarchy of Pound's works by revealing the power of texts considered marginalia

Dante and heterodoxy : the temptations of 13th century radical thought by Maria Luisa Ardizzone( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dante and Heterodoxy: The Temptations of Thirteenth Century Radical Thought, edited and with an introduction by Maria Luisa Ardizzone, collects several studies devoted to discussing Dante's work in the light of the intellectual debate that developed in thirteenth century Europe after the entrance of new Aristotelian learning and the diffusion of Greek-Arabic thought, in particular the Latin translations of works by Ibn-Rushd (Averroes). What takes form in the various articles is the emerging of an interest in the philosophical and scientific contents of Dante's opus. Heterodoxy in this volume is thus linked to, but not always coincident with, what medieval scholars such as Ferdinand Van Steenberghen or Alain De Libera term "radical Aristotelianism" or "Integral Aristotelianism. The word "temptations", as its meaning clearly shows, delineates not an organic link with heterodox or radical ideas, but rather an intermittent inclination to include or evaluate themes related to these ideas. Moreover, "temptations" implies a search, an interrogation that consists of the doubts and uncertainties of a poet strongly involved in the intellectual debate of his time and culture, and for whom philosophy and theology are not fields of opposition but different modes of inquiry. -- Contracubierta

Maschinen-Kunst und andere Schriften : das verlorene Denken der italienischen Jahre by Ezra Pound( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in German and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im vorliegende Band werden allem bisher unveröfentliche oder seltene Schriften vom Ezra Pound (1885-1972) vorgelegt. Die Aufsätze in diesem Band betreffen nicht nur ästhetische Anliegen Pounds: seine Kritik an der abendländischen Metaphysik, seine Begegnung mit der Maschine als neuem Kriterium der Schönheit, seine Beschäftigung mit der deutschen Bauhausbewegung und seine Suche nach einer angemessenen Art zu schreiben, die mehr von den Gesetzen der Mathematik als jenen der Grammatik bestimmt sein sollte. Sie dokumentieren die Spannweite von Pounds Polemik gegen die Abstraktionen des Modernismus, gegen Monismus und Monotheismus und zeigen den Umfang seines Kampfes gegen die fortwirkende aristotelische Metaphysik
Dante as political theorist : reading Monarchia( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dante's Latin treatise Monarchia inscribes itself within the long medieval conflict between Pope and Emperor and the debate that opposed the theorists of theocracy to the supporters of the empire. The Monarchia, traditionally assumed to be a subversive work as its tormented reception testifies - it remained listed in the Index of Prohibited Books from 1559 to the end of the 19th century - results from the strong connection Dante emphasized between politics and ethics. The bene esse of human beings is the crucial issue that the treatise discusses since its very beginning. More than focusing on

Ne plus ultra?: Rereading magnanimity in Dante Alighieri's "Convivio" and "Divine Comedy" and courage in Torquato Tasso's "Jerusalem Delivered." by Paul Bucklin( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I then employ the conclusions reached in chapter one towards close readings of specific passages in the works of one medieval author, Dante Alighieri, and one Renaissance author. Torquato Tasso, to better define the exact nature of the manner in which they conceived of and employed notions of courage in the works under investigation. By focusing on both minute semantic shifts within a specific lexical tradition of ethical terminology, and studying the employment of the terms related to notions of courage in the works of Dante and Tasso, my dissertation marks out normally imperceptible semantic and ideological shifts that better historicizes the manner in which these two thinkers conceived of and depicted courage and the manner in which they struggled to utilize traditional notions of courage (as defined by Aristotle and his followers) in specific scenarios as depicted in their poetic masterpieces, the Divine Comedy and the Jerusalem Delivered
