On the beauty of women by Agnolo Firenzuola( Book )

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 by Apuleius( Book )

25 editions published between 1549 and 1781 in Italian and Latin and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With accuracy, wit, and intelligence, this remarkable new translation of The Golden Ass breathes new life into Apuleius's classic work. Sarah Ruden, a lyric poet as well as a highly respected translator, skillfully duplicates the verbal high jinks of Apuleius's ever-popular novel. It tells the story of Lucius, a curious and silly young man, who is turned into a donkey when he meddles with witchcraft. Doomed to wander from region to region and mistreated by a series of deporable owners, Lucius at last is restored to human form with the help of the goddess Isis. In a translation that is the most faithful and the most entertaining to date, Ruden reveals to modern readers the vivid, farcical ingenuity of Apuleius's style."--Inside jacket flap

Sur la langue italienne by Dante Alighieri( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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]
