Sweeping broadly through two centuries of art and literature, Roston has clarified and 'reified'distinctions, comparisons, and theories in useful ways, and has produced what I believe will be one of the basic books in its field. A reader finds substance here, and a stimulation that should materially advance the current discussion. --Roland Mushat Frye, Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania Roston is unfailingly intelligent. His work presents a series of insights through its method of juxtaposition of verbal and visual materials--insights that are always interesting and sometimes startling in their penetration of cultural complexities and their revelation of valuable ideas. What is more, and especially welcome, his book is written with the utmost clarity and flow.-- James V. Mirollo, Columbia University . a model of scholarship and literary grace.


--John Mulryan, Cithara Without question, this book is stimulating in its approach and subject matter, and I strongly recommend it for the libraries of interdisciplinarian and Renaissance enthusiasts and scholars. --Richard Studing, Seventeenth- Century News.
