9780197262849: Loyola's Bees: Ideology and Industry in Jesuit Latin Didactic Poetry (British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship Monographs)

This is the first dedicated study of the classical-style, Latin didactic poetry produced by the Society of Jesus in the early modern period. The Jesuits were the most prolific composers of such poetry, teaching all manner of arts and sciences: meteorology and magnetism, raising chickens and children, the arts of sculpture and engraving, writing and conversation, the social and medicinal benefits of coffee and chocolate, the pious life and the urbane life. Dr. Haskell accounts for this investment in so secular a genre by considering the Society's educational and ideological values and practices. Extensive quotation from the poems reveals their literary qualities, compositional methods, and traditions. The poems also command scholarly attention for what they reveal about social, cultural, and intellectual life in this period.

About the Author:

Yasmin Haskell is Cassamarca Foundation Associate Professor in Latin Humanism, University of Western Australia.

Review:

`Haskell's fascinating study of a genre that has not received a great deal of critical attention will no doubt create further interest in the neo-Latin didactic poetry of the Society of Jesus.' Sixteenth Century Journal
