The androgyne in early modern France : contextualizing the power of gender by Marian Rothstein( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Renaissance, the androygyne--based on sources in the book of Genesis and Plato's Symposium--was a means of expressing the full potential of humans made in the image of God. Discussing the androygyne within the context of the visual, literary, and political, specifically, Rothstein documents the wide-ranging uses of the androgyne in the thought of poets, philosophers, courtiers, and women in positions of political power and its ultimate connection to gender construction during the European Renaissance. As the book moves from examining the sources of the androgyne to increasingly contextualized instances of their use, Rothstein highlights specific manifestations of the androgyne as a powerful yet enigmatic literary metaphor and an instrument of action in the world. -- Back cover
Reading in the Renaissance : Amadis de Gaule and the lessons of memory by Marian Rothstein( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amadis de Gaule may well have been France's first real best-seller. When it first appeared, in 1540, Amadis attracted the smart crowd - court circles and rich bourgeois. Its early editions are large luxury folios, dedicated to members of the royal family. But some twenty years after the Amadis phenomenon started, it ended. References to it in the last quarter of the sixteenth century tend to be either nostalgic or critical. This book uses the rise and fall of Amadis de Gaule as a case study of the time-bound nature of readers' reading. The rhetorical, narrative, and memorial techniques of Amadis also appear in other contemporary works where they have received little notice."--Jacket

Regicide and revolution; speeches at the trial of Louis XVI by Michael Walzer( Book )

7 editions published between 1974 and 1992 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maintaining that the trial and public execution of Louis XVI was an absolutely essential part of the French Revolution, Walzer discusses two types of regicide: the first, committed by would-be kings or their agents, left the monarchy's mystique and divine right intact, while the second was a revolutionary act intended to destroy it completely. Walzer defends the trial and execution of Louis XVI as necessary, since it not only tried to destroy the monarchy's mystique and divine right, but also required the deputies to fully explain their guiding philosophies and applied the rules of judicial process to establish equality before the law. New to this edition is an appendix containing "Revolutionary Justice," Ferenc Feher's classic rebuttal to Walzer's thesis, and Walzer's response, "The King's Trial and the Political Culture of the Revolution."
