Renaissance Dialogue by Virginia Cox
Book DescriptionThis 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.

Books By Author Virginia Cox
Short History of the Italian Renaissance, Paperback (October 2015)
Contains new emphasis on women; rhetorical culture and the Italian regions beyond Florence/Venice/Rome.
Flori, a Pastoral Drama, Paperback (September 2004)
One of the first pastoral dramas published by an Italian woman, 'Flori' has been comparatively neglected by scholars. The editors argue that 'Flori' contains an intensity of focus on the ideals of female autonomy that makes it a rewarding study both as literature and as a historical document.
Worth of Women, Paperback (August 1997)
In this work, originally published in 1600, the author creates a conversation among seven Venetain noblewomen. The dialogue explores women's experience in both theoretical and practical terms. The women take as their broad theme men's curious hostility towards women and the possible cures for it.
Gramsci: Pre-Prison Writings, Hardback (January 1994)» View all books by Virginia Cox
A wide-ranging and important 1994 collection of Gramsci's pre-prison writings.
