Medieval Latin and the rise of European love-lyric by Peter Dronke ( Book )
42 editions published between 1965 and 1999 in English and French and held by 1,736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The medieval lyric by Peter Dronke ( Book )
39 editions published between 1968 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To read Peter Dronke's book is to want immediately to read again the lyrics about which he writes so perceptively. His understanding of human nature combines with an extraordinary bird's-eye view of Western European culture in the middle ages (and familiarity with the languages) to present the poetry of the time in beguiling context. He shows the men and women who sang and played in medieval Europe as the heirs of both a Roman and a Germanic lyric tradition, united but differentiated from country to country; he introduces the scholars and musicians from the Byzantine world and the Paris schools, the German courts and Italian city-states, and he brilliantly presents their work, both sacred and profane. The melodies are given for twelve of the lyrics discussed, a small but satisfying repertoire and an important reminder that music was for a medieval audience an essential complement to the lyric
Women writers of the Middle Ages : a critical study of texts from Perpetua ([dagger] 203) to Marguerite Porete ([dagger] 1310) by Peter Dronke ( Book )
42 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in English and held by 1,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the first to give a detailed picture of the contributions made by women writers to western literature from the third century to the thirteenth. Many of the texts Peter Dronke presents and interprets have hitherto remained unknown, or virtually inaccessible; some have never been edited or translated before. The emphasis throughout is on personal testimonies, and on texts that have notable literary or intellectual interest. Thus the book affords many new insights into medieval literature, not only into the writings of renowned women such as Hrotsvitha or Heloise, but also into those of a number of neglected writers who are exceptional in their gifts and individuality

A History of twelfth-century Western philosophy by Peter Dronke ( Book )
24 editions published between 1987 and 1999 in English and held by 712 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first comprehensive study of the philosophical achievements of twelfth-century Western Europe. It is the collaboration of fifteen scholars whose detailed survey makes accessible the intellectual preoccupations of the period, with all texts cited, in English translation, throughout. After a discussion of the cultural context of twelfth-century speculation, and some of the main streams of thought- Platonic, Stoic, and Arabic- that quickened it, comes a characterization of the new problems and perspectives of the period, in scientific inquiry, speculative grammar, and logic. This is followed by a closer examination of the distinctive features of some of the most innovative thinkers of the time, from Anselm and Abelard to the School of Chartres. A final section shows the impact of newly recovered works of Aristotle in the twelfth-century West
