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

17 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in English and held by 1,463 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
Reading between the lines by Annabel M Patterson( Book )

30 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 962 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 562 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

12 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fables of power : Aesopian writing and political history by Annabel M Patterson( Book )

10 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 429 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 communication, 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 myt

Andrew Marvell by Annabel M Patterson( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2018 in English and held by 416 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 long parliament of Charles II by Annabel M Patterson( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 355 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 317 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 prose works of Andrew Marvell by Andrew Marvell( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 65 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
