Book Excerpt :

The Spanish Arcadia analyzes the figure of the shepherd in the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spanish imaginary, exploring its centrality to the discourses on racial, cultural, and religious identity. Drawing on a wide range of documents, including theological polemics on blood purity, political treatises, manuals on animal husbandry, historiography, paintings, epic poems, and Spanish ballads, Javier Irigoyen-García argues that the figure of the shepherd takes on extraordinary importance in the reshaping of early modern Spanish identity. The Spanish Arcadia contextualizes pastoral romances within a broader framework and assesses how they inform other cultural manifestations. In doing so, Irigoyen-García provides incisive new ideas about the social and ethnocentric uses of the genre, as well as its interrelation with ideas of race, animal husbandry, and nation building in early modern Spain.

Book Short Summary:

Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837) and Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) crossed paths during their lifetimes, and though they never met, the legacy of their work betrays a shared destiny. As prominent figures who challenged and contributed to the Romantic debate, Leopardi and Shelley hold important roles in the history of their respective national literatures, but paradoxically experienced a controversial and delayed reception outside their native lands. Cerimonias wide-ranging study brings together these two poets for the first time for an exploration of their afterlives, through a close reading of hitherto unstudied translations. This intriguing journey tells the story, from its origins, of the two poets critical fortune, and examines their position in the cultural debates of the nineteenth century; in disputes regarding translation theories and practices; and shows the configuration of their identities as we understand their legacy today.

Book Short Summary:

Attraverso l’analisi di alcuni testi teatrali settecenteschi, scelti come particolarmente rappresentativi, il libro propone un’interpretazione del mito edipico, nel suo adeguarsi alle differenti concezioni del tragico. Osservando il paradigma nelle sue variazioni, lo studio si concentra sull’evoluzione della prospettiva di colpevolezza del protagonista, dalla sostanziale assoluzione sofoclea fino alla condanna sempre più decisa della modernità. All’imporsi della vicenda incestuosa sul parricidio corrisponde anche il passaggio dalla tragedia politica ad una di stampo più intimista, nella quale conquista spessore drammaturgico una dimensione sentimentale e onirica. Ad un capitolo introduttivo, volto a misurare la portata del mito nella letteratura cinque-seicentesca italiana in relazione alle teorie del tragico, seguono quattro letture di testi teatrali che propongono soluzioni innovative nella tradizione.

Allegoria e teatro tra Cinque e Settecento: da principio compositivo a strumento esegetico

Book Short Summary:

Sin dalle origini della nostra tradizione romanza il fascino dell’allegoria promana dal suo essere un oggetto di riflessione problematico e sfuggente nel suo carattere di alieniloquium che rinvia ad un’alterità: un tropus che «aliud enim sonat, aliud intelligitur», capace di collegare il «visibile» con l’«invisibile», il profano con il sacro, l’immanente con il trascendente. La sua connaturata ambivalenza, che nei secoli la raffina sia come strumento concettuale dell’interpretazione sia come modalità poetica ed estetica dell’espressione, fa dell’allegoria una categoria cardine, di assoluto rilievo per la conoscenza delle strutture culturali e delle forme rappresentative che contraddistinsero la mentalità e la sensibilità delle diverse epoche storiche. Il volume, che comprende saggi volti ad affrontare la questione da angolazioni critiche e metodologiche differenti, intende raccogliere la sfida ambiziosa di una perlustrazione sistematica sulla presenza e i caratteri della fenomenologia allegorica nel teatro della prima modernità. Nella drammaturgia italiana ed europea tra Cinque e Settecento emerge, infatti, con evidenza una dimensione allegorica che permette agli autori, da una parte, di veicolare messaggi etici, teologici e politici – e al fondo di giustificare la ‘moralità’ del teatro – , dall’altra di sfidare l’intelligenza dell’interprete in un raffinato esercizio critico volto a riscoprire i significati reconditi dei testi. I contributi, qui raccolti, tracciano molteplici percorsi, dall’analisi delle strategie compositive attraverso le quali si attua il travestimento allegorico nei diversi generi della ‘rappresentazione’ – dal dramma pastorale al balletto, dalla tragedia al dramma per musica –, all’esame dell’affioramento di linguaggi e codici esoterici complessi, sino allo studio della rifunzionalizzazione in chiave allegorica di personaggi mitologici.

Book Short Summary:

In this detailed treatment of the myth of Adonis in post-Classical times, Carlo Caruso provides an overview of the main texts, both literary and scholarly, in Latin and in the vernacular, which secured for the Adonis myth a unique place in the Early Modern revival of Classical mythology. While aiming to provide this general outline of the myth's fortunes in the Early Modern age, the book also addresses three points of primary interest, on which most of the original research included in the work has been conducted. First, the myth's earliest significant revival in the age of Italian Humanism, and particularly in the poetry of the great Latin poet and humanist Giovanni Pontano. Secondly, the diffusion of syncretistic interpretations of the Adonis myth by means of authoritative sixteenth-century mythological encyclopaedias. Thirdly, the allegorical/political use of the Adonis myth in G.B. Marino's (1569-1625) Adone, published in Paris in 1623 to celebrate the Bourbon dynasty and to support their legitimacy with regard to the throne of France.

María Zambrano no ha vendido su alma a la idea, ha protegido su alma a la idea, ha protegido su esencia única colocando la experiencia de lo Insoluble por encima de la reflexión sobre ello, ha dado en suma un paso más allá de la filosofía ...Para ella, nada es verdad salvo lo que precede o lo que sigue a lo formulado, unicamente el verbo que se hurta a las trabas de la expresión o, como ella misma ha dicho magnificamente, "la palabra liberada del lenguaje" [...] Un fuego interior que se oculta, un ardor que se disimula bajo una resignación irónica: todo en María Zambrano desemboca en otra cosa, todo implica un matiz de más allá, todo [...] ¿Quién como María Zambrano yendo al encuentro de nuestras inquietudes, de nuestras búsquedas, posee el don de dejar caer el vocablo imprevisible y decisivo, la respuesta de prolongaciones sutiles? De ahí que quisiéramos consultarla en los momentos cruciales de una vida, en el umbral de una conversión, de una ruptura, de una traición, en la hora de las últimas confidencias, graves y comprometedoras, para que nos revele y explique a nosotros mismos, para que nos dispense, por así decirlo, una absolución especulativa, y nos reconcilie tanto con nuestras impurezas como con nuestros callejones sin salida y nuestros estupores.

Book Short Summary:

Este nuevo libro de Jesús González Maestro sobre el teatro de Cervantes responde al espíritu que el fundador del comparatismo español Claudio Guillén manifestaba con esta pregunta dirigida a su lector: “¡Si supieras lo que me cuesta situar un tema español exclusivamente en el ámbito de España!” Aparece Calipso eclipsada al comienzo de varios centenarios cervantinos. Al de las Novelas ejemplares, seguirán el de la segunda parte de El Quijote y, precisamente, el de las Ocho comedias y ocho entremeses nunca representados, para finalizar con la conmemoración de su obra póstuma Persiles y Sigismunda. Especial significado tendrá el cuarto centenario del fallecimiento de los autores de La Numancia y Macbeth, a quienes Harold Bloom atribuye la supremacía entre todos los escritores occidentales desde el Renacimiento hasta el siglo XXI. Cervantes y Shakespeare merecen también la consideración conjunta de González Maestro, que aplica a la vez las ideas, conceptos y métodos de la Literatura Comparada al príncipe de nuestros ingenios y otras tres figuras de los siglos XVII, XVIII y XIX: Milton, Alfieri y Büchner. Teatro en nuestra lengua, en inglés, alemán e italiano, sin olvidar la huella cervantina en otras latitudes europeas y en autores como Casona, Lorca o Torrente Ballester.

Principios de Estética o de Teoría de lo Bello

Book Short Summary:

Los Principios de Estética (1857) de Manuel Milá y Fontanals constituyen la más importante obra fundacional española sobre la materia. Ésta es la razón primera para la presente edición facsimilar, así como para interrogarse acerca de la suerte editorial de este texto y, desde luego, acerca de la constitución de la disciplina en España. Pero esa suerte quizás no podía ser otra que la correspondiente al abandono sufrido por la historia de la Estética en nuestro país, su olvido durante siglo y medio. La edición, estricta y exenta, de la versión primigenia de la contribución teórica de Milá y Fontanals, pretende dos cosas: subrayar el singular relieve de la obra y, segundo, culminar el proyecto de edición de la producción estética del autor situando este texto individualmente como documento de valor histórico y a disposición del lector interesado junto a su par de Krause y el conjunto desarrollado por Milá como Estética y Teoría literaria. El hecho, clave para la historia de la disciplina en nuestro país, consiste en que las obras de Milá y Krause-Giner de los Riós describen la dobre línea definitoria de la historia de la disciplina en España. Esto es, de una parte, el texto inicial de Milá y sus desarrollos posteriores, clave de la Escuela Catalana de Estética, a los que se ha de sumar prodigiosamente la Historia de las Ideas Estéticas en España de Menéndez Pelayo, principal ideador, aún no reconocido, de ese género intelectual decisivo para el siglo XX; de otra parte, el Compendio de Krause-Giner y sus correspondientes desarrollos en el ámbito de la Institución Libre de Enseñanza, configuran las dos grandes corrientes estéticas que situaron y en liza tanto el marco teórico general de la Estética española como su proyección y establecimiento académico en los distintos niveles de enseñanza. Es un proceso que abarca un siglo de duración, desde mediados del XIX hasta la guerra.

Book Short Summary:

Esquines puso sus enormes dotes de orador al servicio de la idea de alcanzar un acuerdo con Macedonia a fin de alcanzar la paz, y por ello se enfrentó enconadamente al antimacedonio Demóstenes, el gran orador ático. Esquines (Atenas, c. 360 - Rodas, c. 322 a.C.) fue, en el campo de la oratoria, el gran rival de Demóstenes. Su fama se basa en los tres únicos discursos que de él hemos conservado: "Contra Timarco", en el que reclama una ley que prohíba dirigirse a la asamblea ateniense a los ciudadanos disolutos; "Acerca de la embajada fraudulenta", en el que Esquines se defiende de la acusación hecha contra él por Demóstenes, en un discurso homónimo, de haber pactado una paz perjudicial con Macedonia; y "Contra Ctesifonte", donde impugna una propuesta de otorgar una corona de oro a Demóstenes en reconocimiento a su labor, y deplora los efectos que la actividad de éste ha tenido para Atenas. De los dos últimos discursos conservamos también los enfrentados de Demóstenes (publicados en esta misma colección). La comprensión cabal tanto de los escritos de Esquines como de la enconada animadversión entre éste y Demóstenes requiere el contexto histórico. En el siglo IV a.C., la amenaza de Filipo II de Macedonia se cernía sobre toda Grecia, y no tardaron en formarse un partido favorable y otro adverso al rey macedonio. El conflicto llegó al ágora ateniense, donde ambos ardorosos oradores se enfrentaron dialécticamente: Demóstenes, al frente del partido antimacedónico, y Esquines, partidario de llegar a un acuerdo con Filipo. Aunque la tradición posterior se inclinó a favor de Demóstenes, pues lo veía como una especie de héroe nacionalista, la crítica actual tiende a ser más objetiva y a poner a Esquines en el lugar que le corresponde dentro de las letras griegas.

La figura di Antonio Minturno oggi, grazie anche al consolidamento di alcune certezze in fatto di lingua e poetica, si è delineata ormai come centrale nel panorama del petrarchismo di medio e fine Cinquecento italiano e spagnolo; l’indubbia influenza esercitata su Torquato Tasso prima e Marino dopo (per tacere della sua presenza teorica in ambito musicale per tutto il Barocco), ci permette oggi di spostarlo tra quei “Maggiori” della letteratura italiana che hanno influenzato con la propria opera non solo la poesia, ma anche la generale formazione estetica degli autori nelle diverse discipline, dalla poesia alla musica.

Book Short Summary:

The Licit Life of Capitalism is both an account of a specific capitalist project—U.S. oil companies working off the shores of Equatorial Guinea—and a sweeping theorization of more general forms and processes that facilitate diverse capitalist projects around the world. Hannah Appel draws on extensive fieldwork with managers and rig workers, lawyers and bureaucrats, the expat wives of American oil executives and the Equatoguinean women who work in their homes, to turn conventional critiques of capitalism on their head, arguing that market practices do not merely exacerbate inequality; they are made by it. People and places differentially valued by gender, race, and colonial histories are the terrain on which the rules of capitalist economy are built. Appel shows how the corporate form and the contract, offshore rigs and economic theory are the assemblages of liberalism and race, expertise and gender, technology and domesticity that enable the licit life of capitalism—practices that are legally sanctioned, widely replicated, and ordinary, at the same time as they are messy, contested, and, arguably, indefensible.

Book Short Summary:

Dosso Dossi has long been considered one of Renaissance Italy's most intriguing artists. Although a wealth of documents chronicles his life, he remains, in many ways, an enigma, and his art continues to be as elusive as it is compelling. In Dosso's Fate, leading scholars from a wide range of disciplines examine the social, intellectual, and historical contexts of his art, focusing on the development of new genres of painting, questions of style and chronology, the influence of courtly culture, and the work of his collaborators, as well as his visual and literary sources and his painting technique. The result is an important and original contribution not only to literature on Dosso Dossi but also to the study of cultural history in early modern Italy.

Opera in Seventeenth-Century Venice

Book Short Summary:

Ellen Rosand shows how opera, born of courtly entertainment, took root in the special social and economic environment of seventeenth-century Venice and there developed the stylistic and aesthetic characteristics we recognize as opera today. With ninety-one music examples, most of them complete pieces nowhere else in print, and enlivened by twenty-eight illustrations, this landmark study will be essential for all students of opera, amateur and professional, and for students of European cultural history in general. Because opera was new in the seventeenth century, the composers (most notably Monteverdi and Cavalli), librettists, impresarios, singers, and designers were especially aware of dealing with aesthetic issues as they worked. Rosand examines critically for the first time the voluminous literary and musical documentation left by the Venetian makers of opera. She determines how these pioneers viewed their art and explains the mechanics of the proliferation of opera, within only four decades, to stages across Europe. Rosand isolates two features of particular importance to this proliferation: the emergence of conventions—musical, dramatic, practical—that facilitated replication; and the acute self-consciousness of the creators who, in their scores, librettos, letters, and other documents, have left us a running commentary on the origins of a genre.

Book Short Summary:

The purpose of this volume is to investigate the crucial role played by the return of knowledge of Greek in the transformation of European culture, both through the translation of texts, and through the direct study of the language. It aims to collect and organize in one database all the digitalised versions of the first editions of Greek grammars, lexica and school texts available in Europe in the 14th and 15th centuries, between two crucial dates: the start of Chrysoloras’s teaching in Florence (c. 1397) and the end of the activity of Aldo Manuzio and Andrea Asolano in Venice (c. 1529). This is the first step in a major investigation into the knowledge of Greek and its dissemination in Western Europe: the selection of the texts and the first milestones in teaching methods were put together in that period, through the work of scholars like Chrysoloras, Guarino and many others. A remarkable role was played also by the men involved in the Council of Ferrara (1438-39), where there was a large circulation of Greek books and ideas. About ten years later, Giovanni Tortelli, together with Pope Nicholas V, took the first steps in founding the Vatican Library. Research into the return of the knowledge of Greek to Western Europe has suffered for a long time from the lack of intersection of skills and fields of research: to fully understand this phenomenon, one has to go back a very long way through the tradition of the texts and their reception in contexts as different as the Middle Ages and the beginning of Renaissance humanism. However, over the past thirty years, scholars have demonstrated the crucial role played by the return of knowledge of Greek in the transformation of European culture, both through the translation of texts, and through the direct study of the language. In addition, the actual translations from Greek into Latin remain poorly studied and a clear understanding of the intellectual and cultural contexts that produced them is lacking. In the Middle Ages the knowledge of Greek was limited to isolated areas that had no reciprocal links. As had happened to many Latin authors, all Greek literature was rather neglected, perhaps because a number of philosophical texts had already been available in translation from the seventh century AD, or because of a sense of mistrust, due to their ethnic and religious differences. Between the 12th and 14th century AD, a change is perceptible: the sharp decrease in Greek texts and knowledge in the South of Italy, once a reference-point for this kind of study, was perhaps an important reason prompting Italian humanists to go and study Greek in Constantinople. Over the past thirty years it has become evident to scholars that humanism, through the re-appreciation of classical antiquity, created a bridge to the modern era, which also includes the Middle Ages. The criticism by the humanists of medieval authors did not prevent them from using a number of tools that the Middle Ages had developed or synthesized: glossaries, epitomes, dictionaries, encyclopaedias, translations, commentaries. At present one thing that is missing, however, is a systematic study of the tools used for the study of Greek between the 15th and 16th century; this is truly important, because, in the following centuries, Greek culture provided the basis of European thought in all the most important fields of knowledge. This volume seeks to supply that gap.

Book Short Summary:

Un libro di viaggio attraverso la Grecia, in particolare il Peloponneso, con i suoi straordinari siti archeologici, le sue coste ricche di storia e bellezze naturali, la sua gente ospitale. La Grecia vista con gli occhi di Claudia Berton, raffinata cultrice di viaggi e di storia, capace di coniugare sapienza e cultura con la leggerezza di una scrittura che rende felice il lettore nel suo approdo a questo libro, per il quale vale la citazione di Charles Dickens, che la stessa autrice ha posto come epigrafe allo stesso: “Questo libro non vuol essere che una serie di riflessi – vere ombre sull’acqua – di luoghi che hanno, in maggiore o minor grado, un’attrattiva per l’immaginazione di moltissimi; di luoghi fra i quali la mia ha vissuto per anni e anni…”

Book Short Summary:

Gibt es eine spezifische Opernsprache bzw. im engeren Sinne ein klar definierbares, von Beginn der Operngeschichtsschreibung an einheitliches Libretto-Idiom? Wie ließe sich dieses Idiom von anderen Sprachvarietäten abgrenzen? Diesen Grundfragen geht die Studie aus zwei unterschiedlichen methodischen Richtungen nach, indem sie qualitative mit quantitativen Analysen zu Lexik, Syntax und Stil ausgewählter italienischer Opernlibretti kombiniert und sich damit an der Schnittstelle zwischen Korpuslinguistik, Quantitativer Linguistik und Stilforschung positioniert. Ziel ist es, die sprachliche Komplexität von Libretti mit Blick auf unterschiedliche sprachliche Ebenen messbar und damit die diachrone Entwicklung des Genres greifbar zu machen. Durch die primär linguistische Ausrichtung schließt die Arbeit eine Forschungslücke, denn die Textsorte Libretto wurde bisher fast ausschließlich aus literatur-, kultur- oder musikwissenschaftlicher Perspektive beleuchtet. In der vorliegenden Studie wird die Oper als multimediales Kunstwerk verstanden und im Kontext der wechselseitigen Bedingtheit von Sprache und Musik sowie des sich im Verlaufe der Operngeschichte wandelnden Verhältnisses beider Ebenen zueinander diskutiert.

Book Short Summary:

Il volume si ricollega a un convegno tenutosi a Vienna sul primo decennio dell'attività artistica di Pietro Metastasio (1698–1782), concentrandosi sulla stagione in cui egli si impegnò ad affermarsi come "virtuoso di poesia" prima nei salotti napoletani, poi nei teatri d'opera di Napoli, Roma e Venezia. In questi anni Metastasio ebbe modo di sviluppare la sua sottile ed elegante poetica per le scene melodrammatiche – la sua nomina a poeta cesareo presso la corte viennese (1730) amplificò notevolmente la diffusione dei suoi testi in Europa. I suoi libretti più famosi furono intonati da più di 80 compositori, tra cui Mozart e Beethoven. I contributi del volume guidano il lettore nell'officina del poeta e illustrano l'eccezionale combinazione di musicalità, cultura, e un geniale senso dell'efficacia dell'azione drammatica. Der vorliegende Band geht auf eine Wiener Konferenz über das erste Jahrzehnt der künstlerischen Tätigkeit von Pietro Metastasio (1698–1782) zurück. Er befasst sich mit der Zeit, als er anstrebt, sich als "virtuoso di poesia" zuerst in napoletanischen Salons, schließlich in den Opernhäusern der musikalischen Zentren Neapel, Rom und Venedig durchzusetzen. In diesem Zeitraum entwickelte Metastasio seine elegante und subtile Poetik für die Opernbühne – seine Berufung als poeta cesareo an den Wiener Hof (1730) förderte die Verbreitung seiner Werke in Europa ganz enorm. Seine berühmtesten Libretti wurden von mehr als 80 Komponisten vertont – darunter Mozart und Beethoven. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes führen die Leser in die Werkstatt des Dichters und veranschaulichen die außerordentliche Kombination von Musikalität, Gelehrsamkeit und genialem Spürsinn für theatrale Wirksamkeit.

Book Short Summary:

Faust, a once-godly scholar, is beginning to suspect that his efforts to learn the secrets of the universe will never be successful. Desperate, frustrated, and suicidal, he makes a deal with Mephistopheles, an agent of the devil. Signed in blood, the contract states that Mephistopheles will obey Faust on Earth, but in return, Faust must serve him in Hell. Faust is unaware that the pact is part of a wager that God and Mephistopheles have made over the fate of his immortal soul. Mephistopheles gives Faust anything and everything he wants, but is it worth the pain and suffering it causes Faust's loved ones? This is an unabridged version of German author Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's tragic play, first published in 1808, and translated by American poet Bayard Taylor in 1870.

Book Short Summary:

A Comparative History of Literatures in the Iberian Peninsula is the second comparative history of a new subseries with a regional focus, published by the Coordinating Committee of the International Comparative Literature Association. As its predecessor for East-Central Europe, this two-volume history distances itself from traditional histories built around periods and movements, and explores, from a comparative viewpoint, a space considered to be a powerful symbol of inter-literary relations. Both the geographical pertinence and its symbolic condition are obviously discussed, when not even contested. Written by an international team of researchers who are specialists in the field, this history is the first attempt at applying a comparative approach to the plurilingual and multicultural literatures in the Iberian Peninsula. The aim of comprehensiveness is abandoned in favor of a diverse and extensive array of key issues for a comparative agenda. A Comparative History of Literatures in the Iberian Peninsula undermines the primacy claimed for national and linguistic boundaries, and provides a geo-cultural account of literary inter-systems which cannot otherwise be explained.

Book Short Summary:

Italian comedians attracted audiences to performances at every level, from the magnificent Italian, German and French court festival appearances of Orlando di Lasso or Isabella Andreini, to the humble street trestle lazzi of anonymous quacks. The characters they inspired continue to exercise a profound cultural influence, and an understanding of the commedia dell arte and its visual record is fundamental for scholars of post-1550 European drama, literature, art and music. The 340 plates presented here are considered in the light of the rise and spread of commedia stock types, and especially Harlequin, Zanni and the actresses. Intensively researched in public and private collections in Oxford, Munich, Florence, Venice, Paris and elsewhere, they complement the familiar images of Jacques Callot and the Stockholm Recueil Fossard within a framework of hundreds of significant pictures still virtually unknown in this context. These range from anonymous popular prints to pictures by artists such as Ambrogio Brambilla, Sebastian Vrancx, Jan Bruegel, Louis de Caulery, Marten de Vos, and members of the Valckenborch and Francken clans. This volume, essential for commedia dell arte specialists, represents an invaluable reference resource for scholars, students, theatre practitioners and artists concerned with commedia-related aspects of visual, dramatic and festival culture, in and beyond Italy."

Book Short Summary:

During the year between July 1588, when the Spanish Armada set sail from Spain and July 1589, when the survivors of the English counterpart of this fleet, the little-known English Armada, reached port in England, two of history's worst naval catastrophes took place. A great deal of attention has been dedicated to the former and precious little to the latter. This book presents a full-scale account of an event which has been neglected for more than four centuries. It reconstructs the military operations day by day for the first time, taking apart the established notion that, with the defeat of the Spanish Armada, England achieved maritime supremacy and the decay of Spain began. This book clearly and in a rigorously documented fashion shows how the defeat of the English Armada counterbalanced that of the Spanish, frustrating England's intention of seizing Philip II's American empire and changing the tide of the war.
