Description
Two recurrent themes in Renaissance literature lie at the heart of these seven essays—the sense of exile as a precondition to identity, and the preoccupation with change or mutability. Bart Giamatti engages the problem of writers like Petrarch, Boiardo, Ariosto, Spenser, Marlowe, and others who sought to bring ancient ethics, literature, and learning to life again during the Renaissance in Italy and later in England. In the figures of Hippolytus, Aesculapius, and Proteus in particular, he seeks to define the sense that displacement must precede renascence, that self-determination must be achieved through self-transformation.

"Giamatti's prose is charmingly fluid as he wanders among concepts of chivalry, illusion, and the nature of the epic. Individually, the essays are intriguing and suggestive."—Virginia Quarterly Review
