Synopsis: This is a full-length study of the use of the dialogue form in Italy from the early sixteenth century until Galileo. Drawing on a wide range of sources, it examines the characteristics which determined the genre's unrivalled popularity in the period as a vehicle for polemic, debate, technical exposition and comic drama. More than simply an account of the development of an individual literary genre, however, the book is a contribution to the broader social and cultural history of the period. As representations of conversation, miniature dramas of persuasion, the dialogues of the Italian Renaissance constitute an extraordinarily rich - and largely untapped - source of information about the ideals and practice of communication in the early modern age.

Book Description: A full-length study of the use of dialogue form in Italy, from the early sixteenth century to the age of Galileo, which draws on a wide range of literary, philosophical and scientific sources to examine the genre's unrivalled popularity as a vehicle for polemic.

Book Description University Press, Cambridge, 1992. Hard bound with dustjacket. Book Condition: As new. 1st edition. Jacket illustration: Raphael: 'Two men in discussion'. Jacket design: James Butler. This is a full-length study of the use of the dialogue form in Italy from the early sixteenth century until Galileo. Drawing on a wide range of sources, it examines the characteristics which determined the genre's unrivalled popularity in the period as a vehicle for polemic, debate, technical exposition and comic drama. More than simply an account of the development of an individual literary genre, however, the book is a contribution to the broader social and cultural history of the period. As representations of conversation, miniature dramas of persuasion, the dialogues of the Italian Renaissance constitute an extraordinarily rich - and largely untapped - source of information about the ideals and practice of communication in the early modern age. The original study, written with verve and conciseness, deserves to be read by all those interested in the cultural history of the Cinquecento because of the he light it sheds on that history while it charts the development, or rather the devolution, of the dialogue from Castiglione's 'Cortegiano' (1528) to Guarini's 'Segretario' (1594). Contents: Problems of method. 2). History and invention in the dialogue. 3). The uses of the dialogue in sixteenth century Italy: commerce and courtesy. 5). Castiglione's 'Cortegiano' the dialogue as a drama of doubt. 6). The changing form of the Italian Renaissance dialogue. 7). The theory and practice of the dialogue in Counter Revolution Italy. 8). From the 'girevole strada' to the straight and narrow path. 9). From the open dialogue to the closed book. With notes, bibliography and index. XIII + 236 pag. Size: 23,5cmx16cm.
