Ovid in the age of Cervantes by Frederick A De Armas( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 1,433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Roman poet Ovid, author of the famous Metamorphoses, is widely considered one of the canonical poets of Latin antiquity. Vastly popular in Europe during the Renaissance and Early Modern periods, Ovid's writings influenced the literature, art, and culture in Spain's Golden Age.The book begins with examinations of the translation and utilization of Ovid's texts from the Middle Ages to the Age of Cervantes. The work includes a section devoted to the influence of Ovid on Cervantes, arguing that Don Quixote is a deeply Ovidian text, drawing upon many classical myths and themes. The contributors then turn to specific myths in Ovid as they were absorbed and transformed by different writers, including that of Echo and Narcissus in Garcilaso de la Vega and Hermaphroditus in Covarrubias and Moya. The final section of the book centers on questions of poetic fame and self-fashioning. Ovid in the Age of Cervantes is an important and comprehensive re-evaluation of Ovid's impact on Renaissance and Early Modern Spain
Quixotic frescoes : Cervantes and Italian Renaissance art by Frederick A De Armas( )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 1,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on Don Quixote, Frederick A. de Armas unearths links between Cervantes' text and frescoes, paintings, and sculptures by Italian artists such as Cambiaso, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Titian. His study seeks to re-engage the critics of today by formulating the link between Cervantes and the Renaissance through an interdisciplinary dialogue that establishes a new set of models and predecessors. This dialogue is used to explore a variety of issues in Cervantes including the absence of a single guiding pictorial program, the doubling of archaeological reconstruction, and the use of ekphrasis as allusion, interpolation, and an integral component of the action. Quixotic Frescoes delves into the politics of imitation, self-censorship, religious ideology expressed through the pictorial, as well as the gendering of art as reflected in Cervantes' work. This detailed and exhaustive study is an invaluable contribution to both Hispanic and Renaissance studies."--Jacket

Don Quixote among the Saracens : a clash of civilizations and literary genres by Frederick A De Armas( )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fictional Don Quixote was constantly defeated in his knightly adventures. In writing Quixote's story, however, Miguel Cervantes succeeded in a different kind of quest - the creation of a modern novel that 'conquers' and assimilates countless literary genres. Don Quixote among the Saracens considers how Cervantes's work reflects the clash of civilizations and anxieties towards cultural pluralism that permeated Golden Age Spain
Objects of culture in the literature of imperial Spain by Mary E Barnard( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collecting and displaying finely crafted objects was a mark of character among the royals and aristocrats in Early Modern Spain: it ranked with extravagant hospitality as a sign of nobility and with virtue as a token of princely power. This book explores how the writers of the period shared the same impulse to collect, arrange, and display objects, though in imagined settings, as literary artefacts. These essays examine a variety of cultural objects described or alluded to in books from the Golden Age of Spanish literature, including clothing, paintings, tapestries, playing cards, monuments, materials of war, and even enchanted bronze heads. The contributors emphasize how literature preserved and transformed objects to endow them with new meaning for aesthetic, social, religious, and political purposes - whether to perpetuate certain habits of thought and belief, or to challenge accepted social and moral norms
The return of Astraea : an astral-imperial myth in Calderón by Frederick A De Armas( Book )

14 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In classical mythology Astraea, the goddess of justice, chastity, and truth, was the last of the immortals to leave Earth with the decline of the ages. Her return was to signal the dawn of a new Golden Age. This myth not only survived the Christian Middle Ages but also became a commonplace in the Renaissance when courtly poets praised their patrons and princes by claiming that Astraea guided them. The literary cult of Astraea persisted in the sixteenth century as writers saw in Elizabeth I of England the imperial Astraea who would lead mankind to peace through universal rule. This and other lat

Writing for the eyes in the Spanish Golden Age( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the very notion of writing for the eyes was not new to the Spanish Golden Age, its ubiquitous presence during this period calls for rethinking of the traditional separation between the visual and the verbal in studies of Iberian culture." "This collection of essays seeks to open up this complex interdisciplinary field of study by including essays on many aspects of visual writing in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spain."--Jacket
Cervantes, Raphael, and the classics by Frederick A De Armas( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Frederick de Armas argues convincingly in this book that throughout his literary career, Cervantes was in fact engaged in a conversation with the classical authors of Greece and Rome, especially through the interpretations of antiquity presented by the artist Raphael." "Rather than looking at Cervantes's texts in relation to other literary works, this book demonstrates how Cervantes's trip to Italy and his observation of Italian Renaissance art - particularly the works of Raphael at the Vatican - led him to create new images and structures in his works."--Jacket
