Castiglione’s Book of the Courtier (Il libro del cortegiano, 1528), a dialogue in which the interlocutors attempt to describe the perfect courtier, was one of the most influential books of the Renaissance. In recent decades a number of postmodern readings of this work have appeared, emphasizing what is often characterized as the playful indeterminacy of the text, and seeking to detect inconsistencies which are interpreted as signs of anxiety or bad faith in its presentation. In contrast to these postmodern readings, the present study conducts an experiment. What understanding does one gain of Castiglione’s book if one attempts an early modern reading? The author approaches The Book of the Courtier as a text in which some of its most important aspects are intentionally concealed and veiled in allegory. W.R. Albury argues that this early modern reading of The Book of the Courtier enables us to recover a serious political message which has a great deal of contemporary relevance and which is lost from sight when the work is approached primarily as a courtly etiquette book, or as a lament for the lost influence of the aristocracy in an age when autocratic nation-states were coming into being, or as an impersonal textual field upon which a free play of transformations and deconstructions may be performed.

Castiglione's work The Book of the Courtier, though a popular focus of literary and Renaissance scholars, has failed to gain a following among political theorists. The sole exception to this neglect, Lovett's "The Path of the Courtier: Castiglione, Machiavelli, and the Loss of Republican Liberty," attempts to re-frame the work as a political tome, describing Castiglione's approach as a method of "politics as second best" where, motivated by the author's discontent with the current Italian political climate, the end of the courtier is to indirectly influence the current rulers through his inherent virtue in hope of encouraging a more virtuous rule. However, because Lovett's evidence rests on contextual evidence surrounding the book, his analysis sidesteps key elements within the book that point to a more dramatic role for the courtier, namely the direct influence of foreign rulers and domestic rulers through deceit. By analyzing this work internally, as opposed to contextually, the gap in Lovett's claim is revealed: Castiglione is not only discontented with the current climate of foreign invasion but also with the Italian response to this fluctuation ruling class; moreover, by accepting this inevitable turmoil, the courtier can covertly work from within the system to actively persuade these rulers to make decisions that benefit the Italian citizenry. Though my intention is not to invalidate Lovett's claim that the Courtier must in part increase a leader's virtue indirectly through leading a virtuous life, I will add two points: first, that Castiglione's courtier has a deep connection and love for the protection of Italian tradition and freedom, and second, that the courtier's role in directing a ruler to this end is a direct one --he is to influence a ruler in actual matters, not only to provide him a model of virtue.

"The Lady Vanishes focuses on the representation of women in two key works of the Italian Renaissance: Baldassarre Castiglione's treatise Il libro del cortegiano (The Book of the Courtier) and Ludovico Ariosto's chivalric romance Orlando Furioso. Using feminist, deconstructive, and psychoanalytical arguments, the author investigates power relations and the construction of women's subjectivities in sixteenth-century debates on women and popular narratives." "The book examines the construction of women in different modes: woman as exemplary model and as ridiculed object; woman as narcissistically self-centered and as masochistically altruistic; woman as subject of desire and as object of desire; woman as ambiguously gendered and as radical spectacle of femininity. Because they offer an array of characters ranging from masculine women to feminized men and experiment with many forms of transgressive desire, Castiglione and Ariosto provide the perfect arena for problematizing the Italian Renaissance discourses on gender and sexual difference, on the production of pleasure and theories of selfhood, and on the body and modes of spectatorship." "The author argues that women are indispensable to Castiglione's conversation on the courtier and the court lady not because, as is often contended, he was sympathetic toward women, but because he found women useful for their central role in the male construction of men's own image. As for Ariosto, he resolves his narrative by subsuming women to culture and society, thus sealing out disorder. Although at times portraying female rebellion and resentment as empowering, in the end he punishes women displaying these qualities by banishing them from the text. In contrast, he celebrates the acquiescent woman in the figure of the lady warrior Bradamante, who, upon resuming a properly feminine role, becomes the progenitrix of a dynasty." "The Italian Renaissance discourse on women cast them in both assertive and docile roles. In the end, however, they were restrained or expelled; their society could envision a freer order for men but not for women."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
