Publisher: Burlington : Ashgate, 2014.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Approaching The Book of the Courtier as an early modern reader would have, author W.R. Albury explores aspects of the work which he argues are intentionally concealed and veiled in allegory. In this reading, Albury recovers a serious political message which he shows has a great deal of contemporary relevance, and which is lost from sight when the work is approached from other perspectives.
