With strong themes of debauchery, decadence, hedonism and sensuality, these intoxicating verses will etch themselves in your memory.

Book Summary: This book presents an interpretation of Maurice Scève’s lyric sequence Délie, object de plus haulte vertu (Lyon, 1544) in literary relation to the Vita nuova, Commedia, and other works of Dante Alighieri. Dante’s subtle influence on Scève is elucidated in depth for the first time, augmenting the allusions in Délie to the Canzoniere of Petrarch (Francesco Petrarca). Scève’s sequence of dense, epigrammatic dizains is considered to be an early example, prior to the Pléiade poets, of French Renaissance imitation of Petrarch’s vernacular poetry, in a time when imitatio was an established literary practice, signifying the poet’s participation in a tradition. While the Canzoniere is an important source for Scève’s Délie, both works are part of a poetic lineage that includes Occitan troubadours, Guinizzelli, Cavalcanti, and Dante. The book situates Dante as a relevant predecessor and source for Scève, and examines anew the Petrarchan label for Délie. Compelling poetic affinities emerge between Dante and Scève that do not correlate with Petrarch.

Book Summary: Nostradamus, or Michel de Nostredame, was a physician and astrologer during the time of the Black Death. His most famous book “Les Prophéties,” or “the Prophecies,” was first published in 1555. Some scholars believe that, in this volume, he predicted a number of world events, such as the rise of Napoleon and the death of Hitler, and that it also predicts the coming of the Antichrist and the end of the world. This volume contains annotations and parallel texts. A modern English translation accompanies the original, Mediaeval French—the language in which Nostradamus originally wrote his prophecies—, helping the reader to understand both the original language and the translation of this critical work of eschatology. This edition also contains fragments of the questionable 11th and 12th centuries.

Book Summary: Carlo Ginzburg’s brilliant and timely new essay collection takes a bold stand against naive positivism and allegedly sophisticated neo-skepticism. It looks deeply into questions raised by decades of post-structuralism: What constitutes historical truth? How do we draw a boundary between truth and fiction? What is the relationship between history and memory? How do we grapple with the historical conventions that inform, in different ways, all written documents? In his answers, Ginzburg peels away layers of subsequent readings and interpretations that envelop every text to make a larger argument about history and fiction. Interwoven with compelling autobiographical references, Threads and Traces bears moving witness to Ginzburg’s life as a European Jew, the abiding strength of his scholarship, and his deep engagement with the historian’s craft.
