Practising Translation in Renaissance France

release date: Jan 01, 1988
Practising Translation in Renaissance France
Translation was one important aspect of the concept of imitatio--the imitation of classical models--which dominated the literary scene in Renaissance France. This first study of the practice, as opposed to the theory, of translation among French writers looks at the work and example of the humanist scholar and publisher Ètienne Dolet (1509-46), who was eventually executed for heterodoxy. Worth traces translation''s relation to the intellectual and political controversies of the time, making an original and significant contribution to 16th-century French studies.

Animal Poems

Animal Poems
“Ms. Worth brilliantly employs all aspects of the poet’s craft.” – The New York Times Book Review Each of the exquisite twenty-three poems in this posthumous collection by Valerie Worth carefully distinguishes one animal from all other creatures and captures it in all of its wonderful singularity – from wasp to snake to wren. The way Worth perfectly illuminates the uniqueness of each animal in her precise and elegant free verse will delight both fans of her celebrated Small Poems and readers encountering her poetry for the first time. Breathtakingly rich cut-paper illustrations by Steve Jenkins provide a perfect counterpoint to Worth’s spare style, and together poetry and picture bring every animal vividly to life.
