Searching for the elusive criminals who left her famous father comatose after a bomb blast, cultural arts historian and quasi-archeologist, Amanda Oliver stumbles into a world of thugs, tomb robbers, obsessed archeologists and greedy collectors seeking a priceless Etruscan sarcophagus. "Putty Face's footsteps crunched on the gravel behind me. His erratic breathing, panting like a thirsty animal, paralyzed me. I opened my mouth to protest but no sound came. In a split second, the pressure of his hands on my back told his intentions. He shoved hard. I pitched forward and the ground under my feet disappeared. My arms flailed clumsily when I grabbed out for something to stop my fall but met only air. His fierce thrust sped my descent and I tumbled uncontrollably, bouncing off bare rock outcroppings, each slam increasing my dizziness, bruising and weakening me. Mercifully, I blacked out."

Posthumous Love

Author : Ramie Targoff

For Dante and Petrarch, posthumous love was a powerful conviction. Like many of their contemporaries, both poets envisioned their encounters with their beloved in heaven—Dante with Beatrice, Petrarch with Laura. But as Ramie Targoff reveals in this elegant study, English love poetry of the Renaissance brought a startling reversal of this tradition: human love became definitively mortal. Exploring the boundaries that Renaissance English poets drew between earthly and heavenly existence, Targoff seeks to understand this shift and its consequences for English poetry. Targoff shows that medieval notions of the somewhat flexible boundaries between love in this world and in the next were hardened by Protestant reformers, who envisioned a total break between the two. Tracing the narrative of this rupture, she focuses on central episodes in poetic history in which poets developed rich and compelling compensations for the lack of posthumous love—from Thomas Wyatt’s translations of Petrarch’s love sonnets and the Elizabethan sonnet series of Shakespeare and Spencer to the carpe diem poems of the seventeenth century. Targoff’s centerpiece is Romeo and Juliet, where she considers how Shakespeare’s reworking of the Italian story stripped away any expectation that the doomed teenagers would reunite in heaven. Casting new light on these familiar works of poetry and drama, this book ultimately demonstrates that the negation of posthumous love brought forth a new mode of poetics that derived its emotional and aesthetic power from its insistence upon love’s mortal limits.

Rome has been at the center of western civilization for more than two thousand years. As the capital of an empire, and as the center of the Catholic Church, it has had tremendous influence on art, science, politics and government, as well as on religion. And through its fabulous feats of engineering and construction, it has inspired architects and designers on both the grand public scale and in the details of daily life. This profusely illustrated book has a wide variety of images, and a straight-forward, informative text. It is divided into four main parts: Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque. Each part contains a historical narrative, plus separate sections on topics of special interest. These include: the Walls of Ancient Rome, the Appian Way, the Catacombs, the Cloisters, the Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Stanze, the Farnese Gallery, the Fountains of Rome, and others. Each part also has special sections on Rome's major museums, with highlights from each collection. The sculpture, frescoes, murals and architectural details in this book will appeal to those interested in both the fine and decorative arts. The abundant archaeological material will fascinate those interested in history and daily life in the past. This book is for everyone who has studied Rome, who has visited Rome, or who wishes to go.
