Skip to main content. Log In Sign Up. Mancini, Massimo Maggiari, and John P. Maria Pacini Adrisna Editore, The volume is organized in six chapters, a substantial introduction, an exhaustive bibliography of primary and secondary sources, and nineteen pages of illustrations. The first chapter deals with some visual devices that have influenced many authors of the period and a broad segment adrinaa the reading public.

Arnaudo describes a number of genres of such types of images, and examines them with appropriate examples and illustrations in distinct sections: For Arnaudo all transmission and reception of knowledge requires a close analysis of all its verbal and visual aspects. Significantly, the author has chosen as symbol of his work Vertumnus, a native Roman deity who presided over change and mutability, instead of the canonical Proteus.

He is especially interested in the receptions of images that can be transformed. According to him, this approach to the problem of the influence of visual culture based on its reception offers the possibility to include images that modern readers would not recognize as equivalent to anamorphic images aadriana that could have been understood as such by men of letters and readers of the time.

The Western worldview was undergoing radical revisions necessitated by the discoveries in the heavens and on the earth, and by the Reformation, which had scattered the unity of Christian Europe.

Writers and artists of the time were both inspired and hindered by the awesome legacy of the immediate past as they struggled to find modes of expression that were their own, yet not disrespectful of traditions.

The high number of examples in literary works collected in this volume aims at showing a widespread reception of optical illusions that would be hard to imagine considering the changes in taste in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The presence of changeable images in the works of poets, novelists, philosophers, emblem-writers, treatise writers, and preachers points to the penetration of the phenomenon among a vast and diverse public capable of understanding the allusions.

To be noted is also the fact that often optical illusions were evoked in discussions of important and serious subjects such as science, God, nature, the position of man in it, and poetics. The introductory overview of general trends is followed by five case studies on the uses of these transformational practices in works of five major representatives of the period.

In the second chapter, Arnaudo argues that the philosopher Giordano Bruno was inspired by and used effectively optical illusions in order to present a philosophy in which changing images derived from Giuseppe Arcimboldothe court painter to the Habsburg emperors who carried to the extreme the late Renaissance penchant for the bizarre and fantastic, described an infinite universe in perennial change and provided the readers with a tool with which they could discover the truth.

But Bruno, who had already used geometric diagrams to present an infinite universe in the dialogues of The Expulsion of the Triumphant Beastgoes further in his conception of the cosmos, insisting on comparing his own book to a painting that is difficult to decipher. Paying attention to details and inventiveness in subject matter and style of the Neapolitan poet, Arnaudo shows how anamorphic images inspired by Arcimboldo offered him new means to produce more prodigious effects of wonder and to promote, even institutionalize, a figurative taste soon to be known as Marinism that was becoming fashionable in the early Seicento, The last three chapters take us through a detailed account of the uses of spatial and visual illusions as well as anamorphic and changing images in the works of three contemporary representative members of the Society of Jesus.

He demonstrates how natural anamorphic images played an essential role in the cultural program of universal ecumenism of the German Athanasius Kircherone of the most influential seventeenth-century writers on natural philosophy. According to Tesauro, wit, which can encompass both perspicuity and versatility, is able to bring distant realities closer finding in them common elements.

In chapter six, Arnaudo introduces another prominent Seicento figure: Daniello Bartolithe official historian of the Jesuit order and one of the best rhetorician of the century. Dissenting from both Kircher and Tesauro, Bartoli asserts that the heavens were not created in secrecy; they do not hide mirrors or enigma to decipher. Together, these case studies provide a fuller understanding of the dynamics of verbal and pictorial language interplay, and can serve as methodological templates for looking at, and reading of, many other similarly complex inventions of the period.


By way of summary, this is an ambitious and wide-ranging book that brings a fresh perspective to early modern Italian studies. The work seems to me original in conception, precise in goals, and methodologically consistent. It is tightly focused, thoroughly researched, and well written.

The manner of argumentation is effective and convincing.

The research is up-to-date and interdisciplinary in scope. The footnotes are a rich source of additional information, expanded discussions on related secondary topics. The analyses of individual texts contain perceptive observations about textual details and insightful comparisons of situations in the texts with analogous situations in other works.

The bibliography of primary and secondary sources is in itself an excellent resource that will be consulted by future researchers. It is appropriate to note that Arnaudo has contributed to his corpus of writings on the relations between optical illusions and literature several shorter pieces that have appeared in prestigious Italian and European scholarly journals.

Among them, I like to single out two earlier ones: More recently, in a first-rate essay entitled “Sul significato del giocoliere nel Cannocchiale aristotelico di Emanuele Tesauro” Studi secenteschi 50 []: The xdriana of the juggler simile should not surprise, if one consider the popularity of nonosyante tricks in the seventeenth-century culture and the use that rhetoricians such as Cicero and Seneca, among others, had made of it.

The resulting artificial and bizarre images help the poet to create complex samples of poetic virtuosity and to generate emblems expressing philosophical, emotional, pedagogical effects. It should platohe added that in several other recent contributions on the same topic Arnaudo illustrates learnedly and aptly how emblems i.

On the Cultures of Exile, Translation, and Writing. Through the works of major thinkers and literary authors, from Heidegger, Benjamin, Bataille, and Derrida to Kafka, Blanchot, Leopardi, Caproni, and Agamben among many others, he thus investigates the implications of a discourse on ontology and temporality which, with its discontinuities and heterogeneity, substantiates the ariana capacity for openness and plurality that characterizes potentiality.

Each of the four chapters relates potentiality to questions emerging from nonoztante specific topic. This reflection suggests a connection between Benjamin and Agamben, whose examination of potentiality focuses on infancy as the locus of a fracture but also a dynamics between a pre-existing linguistic mode the voice, in this case and the factuality of embodied, uttered language.

In contemporaneity, Bartoloni concludes, there is no sense of exile because cavrara clash occurs between past and nonstante The individual is enclosed in its own self-sameness instead of opening up to the authentic communal experience that can only derive from the constructive challenges of language and thinking. This truly comparative and interdisciplinary study deserves praise for its analysis of many voices of the Italian literary and philosophical panorama of the last adriaa centuries some of them still neglected, such as Caproni or Virnowith which Bartoloni engages in a wider European intellectual context.

Arguably, the book is most successful precisely at a local level, for its many inspiring rapprochements which, working as self-contained studies, provide original and sophisticated perspectives on key concepts of Western thought. Chapters, in fact, are composed of nonostxnte subsections dealing with specific topics, which at times create detours, thus cavadra the sense of fragmentation despite the overarching motifs. Precisely because of the multiplicity of threads that intertwine in the book, a longer and more articulated conclusion would have been helpful to highlight the many implications of the overall analysis.

This is a fortiori important when one considers that the title itself, with its asyndetic and not much engaging construction and its incomplete listing it includes three of the four notions being discusseddoes not reflect the complexity of the actual questions at stake, their underlying connections, and the purpose of the book as a whole.

Il viaggio e le arti: Il percorso trecentesco continua col saggio di Annalisa Cipollone su Petrarca. Alla seconda categoria appartiene il Codice Vaglienti di cui una parte documenta il contributo tecnico e finanziario di Firenze alle spedizioni portoghesi.

Particolarmente stimolanti sono le tipologie di viaggio proposte: Nel secondo Trecento, in conseguenza degli aumentati criteri realistici, i viaggiatori divengono parte integrante della narrazione pittorica. I disegni dovevano documentare visivamente le campagne militari napoleoniche in Italia. Ne deriva, invece, una perversa omologazione: Chiudono il volume 24 tavole illustrative degli scritti di Marchi, Bourdua e Di Teodoro.

On the Radical Critique of Political Reason. Rather than anti-political, the unpolitical is a relativist conception which defeats the absolute distinction between political and anti-political. In fact, the unpolitical not only criticizes, but also embraces the political, as in the dialectical synthesis between the thesis of the political and the antithesis of the anti-political.

As with mysticism, law turns out to be limited by its own nihilist picture of the world, contrasted to the absolutist ideal of regulation. Political participation marked by this awareness may challenge what Severino refers to as the dominion of the nihilist project of modernity and technology Where absoluteness as boundlessness is overcome, relativity as boundness emerges.


The forms of typically European political distinction and stereotypically Asian anti-political indistinctness correspond to the one force of unpolitical being, in the harmony of opposites. In overcoming the absolutism of political distinction and the nihilism of anti-political indistinctness, the unpolitical implies the relativist conception of the political and the anti-political as relative to each other, which hints at the necessity of recognizing the limits of political myths by adapting their distinctions to the circumstances, instead of leaving them unquestioned as absolute or just denying them with nihilist indifference.

These implications for absolutism, nihilism, and relativism constitute both the strength and the weakness of the analyses collected in the volume, as such implications amount to an innovative philosophical contribution, while not being made explicit anywhere in the dense argumentation. This debate leads to the definition of the political as the paradoxical oscillation between authoritarian absolutism and anarchic nihilism The unpolitical marks a significant development of radical philosophy.

The unpolitical offers a space of relativism which is precious in the deconstruction of the absolutist and nihilist essentialism of politically founded mythical distinctions of language, class, sex, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, citizenship, health, and age, at the hybrid convergence of global and local politics characterizing the decades following the world and cold wars.

Questo tipo di studio deve necessariamente incentrarsi su un approccio sistemico e metodologico che consenta di spiegare e di interpretare le interrelazioni determinatesi tra la letteratura di origine e quella di destinazione, anche per il tramite dei suoi sotto- sistemi e dei diversi centri culturali che apportano il loro contributo a questo particolare settore.

Differences, Deceits and Desires. Murder and Mayhem in Italian Crime Fiction.

U of Delaware P, The volume includes a brief introduction, which provides an outline of the origins and development of crime fiction in Italy, and noonstante sections, each addressing different aspects of Italian crime narrative.

Because of its intrinsic socio- political meanings, this feature has been drawing the attention of critics for a long time. Angela Barwig offers an illuminating overview of crime fiction set in Emilia-Romagna.

She proves that the Emilia-Romagna case exemplifies the significance of the regional setting in contemporary Italian crime narrative. Cicioni explains that these are the first Italian crime stories addressing the issue, but they are hardly subversive.

Di Ciolla provides a number of original points, but more textual examples would have cvaarra greater impact to her notable analysis. Varied in content and approach, it is a welcome addition to the sparse literature on Italian crime fiction.

Chi peregrina e vagabonda scopre il mondo in quanto natura, popoli e culture; il pellegrino si incammina per ritrovare atmosfere mistiche, guidato dalla certezza finale, identificata nel luogo di culto. La rinascita della Francigena deve scaturire dai adrina, come avvenne per le sue origini.

La Via Cassia e la Via Francigena simboleggiano situazioni stradali differenti. Santiago de Compostela, Roma, Gerusalemme. Lungo la Francigena si incontrano pellegrini, lungo la Cassia viaggiatori.

Domenico Defilippis parla del De Neapolitana profectione, racconto di viaggio redatto nelda Ludovico Carbone, letterato della corte estense, in cui i ricordi del viaggio reale non disdegnano il ricorso a una cxvarra copiosa: Lungo il tratto viterbese della Cassia, grazie al saggio di Cinzia Capitoni, conosciamo il geologo Giambattista Brocchi.

Il saggio di Antonino Sole sul Discorso sopra lo stato presente dei costumi degli Italiani di Leopardi prende in considerazione quattro aspetti: La grotta del Decameron IV. La grotta del Filocolo III. I brani selezionati non perdono il loro fascino poetico. La teoria che accompagnava e arricchiva la selezione dei testi nella prima parte del libro sembra affievolirsi; di conseguenza le interpretazioni dei brani tendono ad appiattirsi su uno stesso modello.

La lunghezza dei brani verrebbe giustificata da una lettura che ne considerasse lo stile, la lingua, il ritmo e le rime, ma in questo modo lo sguardo critico sembra quasi dimenticare le ragioni formali che ne hanno dettato la genesi.

Il discorso si sposta sul concetto di melanconia. Si assiste, tramite Boiardo, Ariosto e il Tasso della Gerusalemme Liberata, a un ritorno alla natura maligna e benigna allo stesso tempo, donatrice di vita e di morte, grembo di trasformazioni alchemiche. La Bibbia nella letteratura italiana. Gli interventi raccolti seguono due orientamenti principali:
