Silvae by Angelo Poliziano( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Angelo Poliziano (1454-1494) was one of the great scholar-poets of the Renaissance and a leading figure in the circle of Lorenzo de'Medici "il Magnifico" in Florence. His "Silvae" are poetical introductions to his courses in literature at the University of Florence, written in Latin hexameters They not only contain some of the finest Latin poetry of the Renaissance, but also afford unique insight into the poetical credo of a brilliant scholar as he considers the works of his Greek and Latin predecessors as well as of his contemporaries writing in Italian."
Poems by Michele Marullo Tarcaniota( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and Latin and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Marullus (c. 1453/4{u2013}1500), born in Greece, began life as a mercenary soldier but became a prominent Neo-Latin poet and scholar who worked in Florence and Naples. He married the beautiful and learned Alessandra Scala, daughter of the humanist Bartolomeo Scala, chancellor of Florence, and his Epigrams bring alive the circle of Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de{u2019}Medici. Among Marullus{u2019} influences were ancient Greek texts such as the Homeric and Orphic hymns, the Corpus Hermeticum, the hymns of Proclus, Cleanthes, and Callimachus, and Julian the Apostate{u2019}s Hymn to the Sun. Marullus was particularly important, however, as one of the first Renaissance poets to imitate the works of Lucretius, and one witness reported that, after his death by drowning, a copy of the Roman poet{u2019}s works was found in his saddlebag. Later poets imitated him in vernacular love poetry, especially Ronsard; he even appears as a shadowy figure in the pages of George Eliot{u2019}s Romola, where he is depicted as a confirmed pagan. This edition contains Marullus{u2019} complete Latin poetry. All of these works appear in English translation for the first time."--Publisher's description

"The extraordinarily diverse oeuvre of Juan Luis Vives, marked by great erudition and originality, still remains very little known in the English-speaking world. This collection of essays considers his life and the influence of his writings, and examines some of his chief works. These include his books on the education of women and on the relief of the poor, his numerous political writings, and his huge encyclopedic treatise, De disciplinis, a comprehensive critical and systematic review of universal learning and the state of the academic disciplines at the beginning of the sixteenth century

The correspondence of Erasmus : letters 993 to 1121 ; 1519 to 1520 by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These 129 letters centre primarily on Erasmus' continuing struggle with his Catholic critics, especially those in Spain and France, and on Erasmus' growing criticism of the Protestant reform movement
The correspondence of Erasmus : letters 1926 to 2081, 1528 by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The predominant theme of this volume of letters dating from 1528 is Erasmus' controversies with his critics and opponents. The publication in March of the dialogue Ciceronianus, for example, provoked an uproar in France because it included an ironic jest that was considered insulting to the great French humanist Guillaume Bud & Even more serious were the ongoing efforts of conservative Catholics in France and Italy (such as Noel Beda and Alberto Pio) and in Spain (members of the religious orders) to prove not only that Erasmus harboured Lutheran sentiments but also that humanist scholarship was the source of the Lutheran heresy. In response to these charges Erasmus wrote letters and books in which he vigorously defended his orthodoxy and assiduously cultivated support among the princes and prelates of Europe
