Description
 
John Hale (au); Nicholas Penny (in). Renaissance Italy has long exerted a seductive power over the English. Hallowed by classical assoc., made respectable by the names of great men, & universal by the standard of great art -- the symbol ‘Italian Renaissance’, was & is irresistible.  Here is a pioneering study of the love affair between the English & Italy, of the influence upon English minds of Italian lit. & art, & of the development of the relationship between the Italian Renaissance & the English by whom it was loved & admired. The book enables the reader to understand more fully the idea of Renaissance itself, the elements at work in the increasing concern of Englishmen for the civilization of Italy &, most significantly, how their attitudes to Italy were forged. First published in 1954.
