Ariosto today : contemporary perspectives by Massimo Ciavolella( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ludovico Ariosto's Orlando furioso is one of the masterpieces of the Renaissance, a work which, many argue, signalled the apogee of Renaissance fancy on the precipice of irony and decline. This collection of essays brings together twelve noted Italian and American scholars to provide a complete picture of Ariosto and all his works, covering topics such as historical criticism relating to Ariosto's place and time; philological investigations into the varying literary styles of the author, especially outside of the Furioso; Ariosto's extrinsic relationships with other literary traditions; and formal and thematic excavations of the immanent aesthetics of the Furioso.Each essayist acknowledges the fact that Ariosto's creations are charged with allusions and allegiances variously inviting recognition or demanding the status of record. This reading of his works reveals that Ariosto was not a writer who believed, as it was previously thought, that literature is something escapist or fantastic in nature, but one who, in writing and re-writing his works, tried to re-interpret literary tradition while incorporating the new literary instruments that were available to him at the time: Ariosto's literary production is an integration of tradition and invention. This new reading of his work will be essential to any Italianist's library

Malinconia erotica : trattato sul mal d'amore by Jacques Ferrand( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in Italian and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La malattia d'amore, chiamata anche malinconia erotica, o erotomania, è un'affezione sia dell'anima che del corpo: essa è quindi provacata sia da cause morali, cioè dal desiderio autonomo e dalle passioni eccessive dell'anima, sia da cause fisiologiche, come l'alterazione degli "umori" corporei. Tra i due tipi di cause vi è gioco reciproco e interazione continua. Ispirato a una simile impostazione, il trattato del medico francese Jacques Ferrand ... viene dato alle stampe, per la prima volta, nel 1610. Ed è subito scandalo. La scabrosità del tema spinge il tribunale eclesiastico e il parlamento di Tolosa a condannare, nel 1620, questa prima edizione... Sullo sfondo di un tentativo, condiviso da molti intellettuali e filosofi dell'epoca, di conciliare l'etica con la medicina, ritroviamo oggi in questo testo godibile ed erudito, non pochi elementi di modernità. Punto centrale dell'argomentazione di Ferrand ... è la sottile distinzione tra sintomi soggettivi e sintomi obiettivi della malattia: quei segni che permettono al medico di diagnosticarla precocemente, anche senza la "confessione" del paziente. Ma accanto all'intenzione didattico-scientifica, il testo di ferrand suggerisce alcune rilevanti istanze di carattere padagogico-morale: il disciplinamento delle condotte, la medicalizzazione della sessualità femminile, la moralizzazione e l'interdetto nei confronti dei comportamenti erotici e amorosi non finalizzati alla riproduzione della specie.
