x, 437 pp; 40 illus. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. 'Human bodies have been represented and defined in various ways across different cultures and historical periods. As an object of interpretation and site of social interaction, the body has throughout history attracted more attention than perhaps any other element of human experience. The essays in this volume explore the manifestations of the body in Italian society from the fourteenth through the seventeenth centuries. Adopting a variety of interdisciplinary approaches, these fresh and thought-provoking essays offer original perspectives on corporeality as understood in the early modern literature, art, architecture, science, and politics of Italy. An impressively diverse group of contributors comment on a broad range and variety of conceptualizations of the body, creating a rich dialogue among scholars of early modern Italy' (Johns Hopkins University Press).

"A highly insightful look into history and art, a top pick for such collections for both community and college libraries."

(Midwest Book Review)

"A collection for those interested in Italian and comparative literature, early modern studies, cultural history, or gender studies."


"The broad scope of the essays and the questions they raise will be of compelling importance to any reader interested in the Renaissance, not only the Italian Renaissance, and to scholars across the disciplines from literature, performance, art history, and philosophy to sexuality, gender studies, and science."

(Bella Mirabella Clio)

"The book goes beyond the studies that are conventionally understood as the sphere of "the body" to include deportment in public and private, gymnastics, warfare, dueling and hunting."

(Christine Meek Sixteenth Century Journal)

"This fine work stands as evidence of the benefits of interdisciplinarity."

(Holly S. Hurlburt Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal)

"A welcome addition to the literature on gender and sexuality. The majority of its essays employ innovative methodologies that yield fresh insights into the norms and transgressions of the early modern body... The book will be valuable to a range of scholars and students, and is an important contribution to the study of early modern notions of the body."

(Joyce de Vries European History Quarterly)

"The interdisciplinary approach of The Body in Early Modern Italy is a great success."

(Cynthia Nazarian Renaissance Quarterly)
