- The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00
The Nouvelles Récréations et Joyeaux Devis of Bonaventure des Périers are here translated for the first time into modern English. The translators have been successful in retaining the vitality of this important French Renaissance satirist, turning his colloquial sixteenth-century French into equally colloquial and lively American. The translation... more...

Zweig's highly personal last work, written during the Second World War-a biography of his hero, Michel de Montaigne, and a passionate argument for humanity in times of barbarity 'He who thinks freely for himself, honours all freedom on earth.' Stefan Zweig was already an émigré – driven from a Europe torn apart by brutality and totalitarianism... more...

This book starts by asking why a group of doctors produced an edition of Belleau in 1945. It then traces the motifs of sickness and healing in the poet?s work, ranging more widely than critics have hitherto done, and considering La Reconnue and the Dictamen alongside the better-known texts. It suggests that the supposedly frivolous Belleau... more...

A far-reaching analysis of Clément Marot?s poetry (mainly his Psalm paraphrases) shows that this poet was much more than a frivolous court poet; he was touched by the humanist yearning to restore old texts (in this case the Jewish Psalter) to their original glory. In his translations he was inspired by Martin Bucer?s Commentary. more...

In this work, theories of comedy are used to examine the techniques and processes in Marots poetry.

The full extent of the inspiration Marot draws from François... more...

Thanks to her acclaimed volume of poetry and prose published in France in 1555, Louise Labé (1522-66) remains one of the most important and influential women writers of the Continental Renaissance. Best known for her exquisite collection of love sonnets, Labé played off the Petrarchan male tradition with wit and irony, and her elegies respond with... more...

Essays -- The book is a collection of a large number of short subjective treatments of various topics published in 1580. Montaigne's stated goal is to describe man, and especially himself, with utter frankness. He finds the great variety and volatility of human nature to be its most basic features. He describes his own poor memory, his ability... more...

"This new edition of Montaigne's most important essays is a superb achievement, one that successfully brings together in accessible form the work of two major writers of Renaissance France. The translation by James B. Atkinson and David Sices is accurate, clear, readable, and conveys Montaigne's personable style elegantly to modern readers of English.... more...
