Beschreibung

This is the first dedicated study of the classical-style, Latin didactic poetry produced by the Society of Jesus in the early modern period. The Jesuits were the most prolific composers of such poetry, teaching all manner of arts and sciences: meteorology and magnetism, raising chickens and children, the arts of sculpture and engraving, writing and conversation, the social and medicinal benefits of coffee and chocolate, the pious life and the urbane life. Dr. Haskell accounts for this investment in so secular a genre by considering the Society's educational and ideological values and practices. Extensive quotation from the poems reveals their literary qualities, compositional methods, and traditions. The poems also command scholarly attention for what they reveal about social, cultural, and intellectual life in this period.

Pressestimmen

What is especially valuable to non-classicists ... is Haskell's ability to explicate the innumerable quotations, imitations, and allusions that interlace the genre. Steven Harris, Early Science and Medicine An erudite, enlightening, and unique study of a body of literature historians of science have hitherto largely neglected. Steven Harris, Early Science and Medicine Professor Haskell's book is as valuable a contribution to history of early modern science as it is to her home field of neo-classical literature...Her characterization of [Jesuit education] is among the most concise, insightful, and cogent I have come across. Steven Harris, Early Science and Medicine ...this learned and comprehensive book...is a pioneering study of neo-Latin didactic poetry, and it has broken much new ground. The author clearly knows these poems very well, and her enthusiasm and learning come across on every page. Modern Language Review She has mined the rich prefatory and dedicatory material to reconstruct for the modern reader the intellectual and aesthetic ideals which underlie poetry of this type, and has brought the genre to life. The volume contains a full bibliography and a good index. Modern Language Review
