L’Époque de la Renaissance (1400-1600): Tome III: by Eva Kushner

By Eva Kushner

Au sein de l. a. vaste entreprise qu’est l’Histoire comparée des littératures de langues européennes, los angeles sous-série portant sur l. a.

C’est le yet que se suggest l. a. sous-série Renaissance en tentant de décrire, dans toute sa complexité interlinguistique, interlittéraire, interculturelle et internationale l’époque qui s’étend de 1400 à 1610 (dates peut-être arbitraires mais fournissant du moins une hypothèse quant à los angeles state of affairs chronologique du phénomène Renaissance). Maturations et mutations (1520–60) discover cette tranche chronologique particulière, dans de multiples domaines de los angeles tradition et du littéraire au sein des cultures, en examinant une série de grandes réalisations de l’esprit humain telles qu’elles s’expriment, avec leurs ressemblances et leurs différences, en diverses langues européennes. Plutôt que d’imposer une thought arbitrairement unifiée de l. a. Renaissance (parce qu’il est collectif, mais aussi parce que l. a. multiplicité des survivances et des émergences défie toute généralisation) l’ouvrage que voici tente de saisir l’élan renaissant, là où il se présente, dans toute sa diversité et sa maturité
