The prettiest love letters in the world : letters between Lucrezia Borgia & Pietro Bembo, 1503 to 1519 by Lucrezia Borgia( Book )
6 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in English and held by 94 libraries worldwide
"If history remembers Lucrezia Borgia at all, it is as a woman of extravagant vices whose name has become synonymous with political intrigue and poison. Cardinal Bembo is remembered primarily as the namesake of a popular typeface. But as this book of letters reveals, there was real substance, and real faces, to both of them. Borgia, a child bride who was ruthlessly exploited for political advantage by three husbands, proved to be a girl of surprising resilence and cunning, anything but a monster. Pietro Bembo, the learned and surpassingly gentle scholar, was the perfect product of the Renaissance. The covert love affair they conducted over a period of sixteen years under the nose of Borgia's ruthless brother, Cesare, was as dangerous as it was impassioned, and their letters, which provide a unique record of life during the Italian Renaissance, are a testament both to a relationship of rare beauty and to a feudal society of strict boundaries, dark dynastic drives, boundless political ambition, and extraordinary gallantry." "Set in (what else?) Monotype Bembo, and illustrated with the charming and delicate wood engravings of Richard Shirley Smith, this elegant paperback will be a memorable gift for modern lovers."--Jacket

Une écriture fine et déliée qui court sur le papier{u2026} Lucrèce écrit. Beaucoup. En italien ou en espagnol, sa langue paternelle. Dans une langue châtiée, qui témoigne d{u2019}une éducation hors du commun. Des centaines de lettres, pour la plupart inédites, d{u2019}échanges {u2013} politiques, sentimentaux, amoureux {u2013}, sortis à tout jamais de l{u2019}ombre des archives de Modène, de Mantoue et du Vatican. Elles dévoilent un portrait de la mythique Lucrèce Borgia (1480-1519) à mille lieues de la sulfureuse et manipulatrice bâtarde du pape, maniant poison et séduction, objet de la légende noire façonnée par Victor Hugo. Ainsi se fait entendre, signant la destinée d{u2019}une princesse accomplie de la Renaissance, une voix singulière où affleure une sensibilité à fleur de peau, dans d{u2019}émouvantes lettres d{u2019}amour destinées à ses amants comme à son époux. La jeune fille fragile, enfant chérie de son père Alexandre VI et de son frère César, mariée à trois reprises selon le hasard des alliances politiques familiales, se métamorphose peu à peu en une véritable femme d{u2019}État. À la tête du duché de Ferrare, elle louvoie habilement entre un pape crispé sur ses prérogatives et un roi de France avide de conquêtes italiennes. Remarquable mécène, elle fédère autour d{u2019}elle artistes et humanistes en une cour brillante digne de celle de sa belle-sœur Isabelle d{u2019}Este, que toute l{u2019}Europe lui envie. Une anthologie exceptionnelle pour une Lucrèce inédite"--Publisher's website
