Courtly Song in Late Sixteenth-Century France

Courtly Song in Late Sixteenth-Century France

Author: Jeanice Brooks
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
ISBN: 0226075877
Pages: 560
Year: 2000-01
In the late sixteenth century, the French royal court was mobile. To distinguish itself from the rest of society, it depended more on its cultural practices and attitudes than on the royal and aristocratic palaces it inhabited. Using courtly song-or the air de cour-as a window, Jeanice Brooks offers an unprecedented look into the culture of this itinerant institution. Brooks concentrates on a period in which the court's importance in projecting the symbolic centrality of monarchy was growing rapidly and considers the role of the air in defining patronage hierarchies at court and in enhancing courtly visions of masculine and feminine virtue. Her study illuminates the court's relationship to the world beyond its own confines, represented first by Italy, then by the countryside. In addition to the 40 editions of airs de cour printed between 1559 and 1589, Brooks draws on memoirs, literary works, and iconographic evidence to present a rounded vision of French Renaissance culture. The first book-length examination of the history of air de cour, this work also sheds important new light on a formative moment in French history.
Understanding Cultural Traits

Understanding Cultural Traits

Author: Fabrizio Panebianco, Emanuele Serrelli
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 3319243497
Pages: 410
Year: 2016-02-26
This volume constitutes a first step towards an ever-deferred interdisciplinary dialogue on cultural traits. It offers a way to enter a representative sample of the intellectual diversity that surrounds this topic, and a means to stimulate innovative avenues of research. It stimulates critical thinking and awareness in the disciplines that need to conceptualize and study culture, cultural traits, and cultural diversity. Culture is often defined and studied with an emphasis on cultural features. For UNESCO, “culture should be regarded as the set of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional features of society or a social group”. But the very possibility of assuming the existence of cultural traits is not granted, and any serious evaluation of the notion of “cultural trait” requires the interrogation of several disciplines from cultural anthropology to linguistics, from psychology to sociology to musicology, and all areas of knowledge on culture. This book presents a strong multidisciplinary perspective that can help clarify the problems about cultural traits.

A New York Times Notable Book and winner of the Boston Review Fiction Prize: “[One of the] great novels of this century.” (Donald Newlove, The Philadelphia Inquirer) Hailed as extraordinary from coast to coast, this bestselling novel by National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist Andreï Makine traces a sentimental journey that embraces many of the dramatic events in Russia during the twentieth century. Here is a poignant story of a Soviet boy’s ascent into manhood, and his extraordinary affection for his mysterious grandmother, who captivates him with vivid stories of her childhood in France—a distant country far more elegant, carefree, and stimulating than Russia in the 1970s and ’80s. This epic tale is full of tenderness and passion, pain and heartbreak; mesmerizing, in every way. “Skillfully constructed and elegantly written . . . A major novel.” —Victor Brombert, The New York Times Book Review

Book One in the Marseilles Trilogy The father of Mediterranean noir, in Jean-Claude Izzo's novels, Marseilles is explosive, multi-ethnic, breathtakingly beautiful and deadly. Ugo, Manu, and Fabio grew up together on the mean streets of Marseilles where friendship means everything. They promised to stay true to one another and swore that nothing would break their bond. But people and circumstances change. Ugo and Manu have been drawn into the criminal underworld of Europe's toughest, most violent and vibrant city. When Manu is murdered and Ugo returns from abroad to avenge his friend's death, only to be killed himself, it is left to the third in this trio, Detective Fabio Montale, to ensure justice is done. Despite warnings from both his colleagues in law enforcement and his acquaintances in the underworld, Montale cannot forget the promise he once made Manu and Ugo. He's going to find their killer even if it means going too far. Fabio Montale is the perfect protagonist in this city of melancholy beauty. A disenchanted cop with an inimitable talent for living who turns his back on a police force marred by corruption and racism and, in the name of friendship, takes the fight against the mafia into his own hands.
