Cervantes's novel of modern times : a new reading of Don Quijote by David Quint ( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book offers a radically new reading of Don Quijote, understanding it as a whole much greater than the sum of its famous parts. David Quint discovers a unified narrative and deliberate thematic design in a novel long taught as the very definition of the picaresque and as a rambling succession of individual episodes. Quint shows how repeated motifs and verbal details link the episodes, often in surprising and heretofore unnoticed ways. Don Quijote emerges as a work that charts and reflects upon the historical transition from feudalism to the modern times of a moneyed, commercial society." "A new and coherent guide through the mazelike structure of Don Quijote, this book invites readers to appreciate the perennial modernity of Cervantes's masterpiece - a novel that confronts times not so distant from our own."--Jacket
Montaigne and the quality of mercy : ethical and political themes in the Essais by David Quint ( Book )
9 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a fresh reading of Montaigne's Essais, David Quint portrays the great Renaissance writer as both a literary man and a deeply engaged political thinker concerned with the ethical basis of society and civil discourse. From the first essay, Montaigne places the reader in a world of violent political conflict reminiscent of the French Wars of Religion through which he lived and wrote. Quint shows how a group of interrelated essays, including the famous one on the cannibals of Brazil, explore the confrontation between warring adversaries: a clement or vindictive victor and his suppliant or defiant captive. How can the two be reconciled?
Cinque canti = Five cantos by Lodovico Ariosto ( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This new translation brings to English-speaking readers an intense and brooding work by the greatest poet of the Italian Renaissance, Ludovico Ariosto. Begun as a sequel to his epic masterpiece, Orlando Furioso (1516), the unfinished Cinque Canti are a powerful poem in their own right. Tragic in tone, they depict the disintegration of the chivalric world of Charlemagne and his knights and give poetic expression to a sense of cultural, political, and religious crisis felt in Ariosto's Italy and in early sixteenth-century Europe generally. David Quint's introduction freshly examines the literary sources and models of the Cinque Canti and discusses the cultural contexts and historical occasions of the poem. Printed with facing Italian text, this volume allows the modern English reader to experience a work of Renaissance literature whose savage beauty still has the power to chill and fascinate

Inside ""Paradise Lost"" Reading the Designs of Milton's Epic by David Quint ( )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Inside "Paradise Lost" opens up new readings and ways of reading Milton's epic poem by mapping out the intricacies of its narrative and symbolic designs and by revealing and exploring the deeply allusive texture of its verse. David Quint's comprehensive study demonstrates how systematic patterns of allusion and keywords give structure and coherence both to individual books of Paradise Lost and to the overarching relationship among its books and episodes. Looking at poems within the poem, Quint provides new interpretations as he takes readers through the major subjects of Pa

The life penalty ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How did a rebel public defender from Boulder, Colorado, throw a monkey wrench into America's 'death machine'? Slip into a juror's seat as David Wymore and other nationally recognized criminal defense attorneys bring their fight against the death penalty to the front line: the courtroom. Casting a revelatory and often uncomfortable light on our justice system, The Life Penalty shakes the ethical and moral foundations of capital punishment in the contemporary United States."--Container

Obsolete objects in the literary imagination ruins, relics, rarities, rubbish, uninhabited places, and hidden treasures by Francesco Orlando ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Translated here into English for the first time is a monumental work of literary history and criticism comparable in scope and achievement to Eric Auerbach's "Mimesis". Italian critic Francesco Orlando explores Western literature's obsession with outmoded and nonfunctional objects (ruins, obsolete machinery, broken things, trash, etc). Combining the insights of psychoanalysis and literary-political history, Orlando traces this obsession to a turning point in history, at the end of eighteenth-century industrialisation, when the functional becomes the dominant value of Western culture. Roaming through every genre and much of the history of Western literature, the author identifies distinct categories into which obsolete images can be classified and provides myriad examples. The function of literature in our culture, he concludes, is to remind us of what we have lost and what we are losing as we rush toward the future
