On the beauty of women by Agnolo Firenzuola( Book )

25 editions published between 1891 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1548, On the Beauty of Women purports to record two conversations shared by a young gentleman, Celso, and four ladies of the upper bourgeoisie in the vicinity of Florence. One afternoon Celso and the ladies consider universal beauty. On a subsequent evening, they attempt to fashion a composite picture of perfect beauty by combining the beautiful features of women they know. The standards of beauty established in the garden give way to the artistic, creative imagination of the human spirit, and the group's movement from garden to hall seems to echo the dialogue's movement from Nature to Art, from divinely to humanly created beauty.<br /><br />Konrad Eisenbichler and Jacqueline Murray have provided the first translation into English of Firenzuola's dialogue since the nineteenth century. In their introduction, they argue that Firenzuola's work presents a useful point of entry into the society and values of the mid-sixteenth century. In its discussion of beauty, the dialogue reveals the intersection of Neoplantonic philosophy and mathematically based artistic theory, both inherited from classical antiquity. Indeed, Firenzuola's treatise has been assessed as one of the most significant expositions of Renaissance aesthetics

The golden ass of Apuleius by Apuleius( Book )

35 editions published between 1819 and 1974 in Italian and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Metamorphoses of Lucius Apuleius, which St. Augustine referred to as The Golden Ass (Asinus aureus), is the only Latin novel to survive in its entirety. The protagonist of the novel may in fact be the author himself. His first name is revealed to be Lucius; at the end of the novel, he is revealed to be from Madaurus, the hometown of Apuleius himself. The identification of the protagonist as Lucius of Madaurus has led some scholars to posit that the narrator and the author are one and the same person. The plot revolves around the protagonist's curiosity (curiositas) and insatiable desire to

En 1529, à Vérone, G. Trissino traduit en langue italienne le texte latin de Dante, le De vulgari eloquentia, plaidoyer en faveur de la légitimité de l'usage de la langue vulgaire italienne dans la littérature. Le débat sur la langue est alors la préoccupation des érudits et Firenzuola, dans un pamphlet cinglant, rédige un texte mettant à l'honneur un italien fondé sur le toscan.--[Memento]
