- About this book
The author emphasizes a particularly literary treatment of questions of marriage and courtly friendship between the sexes by the humanists of the early 16th century. He stages marriage and philia between the sexes as compelling crossroads between 16th century literature and social life, as the focal points in a complex constellation of humanist debate, religious experience, canon law and aristocratic tradition.
