Hermogenes and the Renaissance : seven ideas of style by Annabel M Patterson( )

27 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annabel M. Patterson offers here a reassessment of the place of Hermogenes, a Greek rhetorician of the second century A.D., in literary history. She shows that the literary men of the European Renaissance-scholars, critics, and poets-found Hermogenes' Concerning Ideas both important and extremely useful, and she finds that they vigorously applied his concepts to create "a lovely conformitie."The author first gives the history of this treatise on style and a detailed critical analysis of the Seven Ideas or categories of style. The book then demonstrates genre by genre how knowledge of the Seven Ideas can improve one's understanding of poetic development, especially in England, and reveals how the Ideas operate in the works of Tasso, Donne, Sidney, Shakespeare, Marvell, Jonson, Spenser, Milton, and many other poets and critics.

Reading between the lines by Annabel M Patterson( Book )

29 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Patterson argues that, if we learn how to read those old and seemingly alien texts, which themselves responded to rapid and unsettling change in the arenas of religion, politics, and education, they have much that is liberating to tell us about our own expanding culture, including the importance of republican constitutionalism, freedom of speech, and civic and religious toleration._ This salutary redefinition of "humanism" arises from Patterson's essays on Plato, Spenser, Shakespeare, Donne, and Milton; but the book also deals with the "gendered" topics of rape and divorce and with "popular culture" in the sixteenth century and today._ These interests are not on opposite sides of some theoretical boundary, but (as Patterson demonstrates from contemporary novels by Joseph Heller and Nancy Price) interdependent

Reading Holinshed's Chronicles by Annabel M Patterson( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in 3 languages and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Holinshed's Chronicles - a massive history of England, Scotland, and Ireland - has traditionally been read as the source material for many of Shakespeare's plays or as an archaic form of history writing. In the first major study of this sixteenth-century masterpiece, Annabel Patterson insists that the Chronicles be read in their own right as an important and inventive cultural history." "Patterson examines the remarkable collaborative authorship of this history. Although it is known by the name of Raphael Holinshed, editor and major compiler of the 1577 edition, the Chronicles was the work of a group, a collaboration between antiquarians, clergymen, members of Parliament, poets, publishers, and booksellers. Also, since the second edition of 1587 was called in by the Privy Council and revised under supervision, the work constitutes an important test case for the history of early modern censorship." "Through a detailed reading, Patterson argues that the Chronicles convey rich insights into the way the Elizabethan middle class understood their society. Responding to the crisis of disunity that resulted from the Reformation, the authors of the Chronicles embodied and encouraged an ideal of justice, what we would now call liberalism, that extended beyond the writing of history into the realms of politics, law, economics, citizenship, class, and gender."--Jacket
Shakespeare and the popular voice by Annabel M Patterson( Book )

14 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrew Marvell by Annabel M Patterson( )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new study of Andrew Marvell offers a state-of-the-art guide to one of the most intriguing and elusive poets of the seventeenth century. The book provides comprehensive introductions to Marvell's different self-representations, and places the most famous poems, such as The Garden and Horatian Ode, in the dialectic they lose when read only in anthologies
Fables of power : Aesopian writing and political history by Annabel M Patterson( Book )

12 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this imaginative and illuminating work, Annabel Patterson traces the origins and meanings of the Aesopian fable, as well as its function in Renaissance culture and subsequently. She shows how the fable worked as a medium of political analysis and communications, especially from or on behalf of the politically powerless. Patterson begins with an analysis of the legendary Life of Aesop, its cultural history and philosophical implications, a topic that involves such widely separated figures as La Fontaine, Hegel, and Vygotsky. The myth's origin is recovered here in the saving myth of Aesop the Ethiopian, black, ugly, who began as a slave but became both free and influential, a source of political wisdom. She then traces the early modern history of the fable from Caxton, Lydgate, and Henryson through the eighteenth century, focusing on such figures as Spenser, Sidney, Lyly, Shakespeare, and Milton, as well as the lesser-known John Ogilby, Sir Roger L'Estrange, and Samuel Croxall. Patterson discusses the famous fable of The Belly of the Members, which, because it articulated in symbolic terms some of the most intransigent problems in political philosophy and practice, was still going strong as aa symbolic text in the mid-nineteenth century, where it is focused on industrial relations by Karl Marx and by George Eliot against electoral reform. Fables of Power offers a major contribution to the fields of Renaissance studies, literary history, and cultural studies generally. -- from back cover

Early modern liberalism by Annabel M Patterson( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marvell : the writer in public life by Annabel M Patterson( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important study provides an up to date perspective on a writer still thought of merely as the author of a lyric and pastoral poems. It looks at both Marvell's political poetry and his often neglected political prose, revealing Marvell's life long commitment to writing about the values and standards of public life and follows his often dangerous writerly activities on behalf of freedom of conscience and constitutional government." "Marvell: The Writer in Public Life is substantially revised from Professor Patterson's well received 1978 study, including a new introduction and new chapter on Marvell and secret history. The remaining chapters have been thoroughly revised both to bring them up to date with the most recent scholarship and critical work and to make the book accessible to undergraduates and a general audience."--Jacket
The most excellent historie of The merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From his book, Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human, comes Harold Bloom's commentary on the equivocal nature of Shakespeare's most troubling play, from the perspective of the early twenty-first century. We never will know Shakespeare's intentions, and yet few among us are able to see Shylock as a comic villain."--BOOK JACKET
The prose works of Andrew Marvell by Andrew Marvell( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrew Marvell (1621-78) is best known today as the author of a handful of exquisite lyrics and provocative political poems. In his own time, however, Marvell was famous for his brilliant prose interventions in the major issues of the Restoration, religious toleration, and what he called "arbitrary" as distinct from parliamentary government. This is the first modern edition of all Marvell's prose pamphlets, complete with introductions and annotation explaining the historical context. Four major scholars of the Restoration era have collaborated to produce this truly Anglo-American edition. From the Rehearsal Transpros'd, a serio-comic best-seller which appeared with tacit permission from Charles II himself, through the documentary Account of the Growth of Popery and Arbitrary Government, Marvell established himself not only as a model of liberal thought for the eighteenth century but also as an irresistible new voice in political polemic, wittier, more literary, and hence more readable than his contemporaries
