    BRILL 2010; US$ 183.00

    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.

  • Medidas naturales (Natural Measures)by Dianne Irving

    Shell Education 2008; US$ 8.99

    We need to measure the things around us in order to build and make things. Before we had standard measures, people used natural measures including body parts and objects. One of the first measures was a cubit—the length of a man's arm from his elbow to the tip of his middle finger. Another was the mile, which was equal to 1,000 steps. Some... more...

  • Seeing Doubleby Françoise Meltzer

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 36.00

    The poet Charles Baudelaire (1821?1867) has been labeled the very icon of modernity, the scribe of the modern city, and an observer of an emerging capitalist culture.
