Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Updated with a new foreword by Margaret Meserve, Giovanni and Lusanna provides a fascinating view of Renaissance Florentine society and its attitudes on love, marriage, class, and gender. Lusanna was a beautiful woman from a middle-class background who, in 1455, brought suit against Giovanni, her aristocratic lover, when she learned he had contracted to marry a woman of his own class.

Blending scholarship with insightful narrative, the book portrays an extraordinary woman who challenged the unwritten codes and barriers of the social hierarchy and dared to seek a measure of personal independence in a male-dominated world.

From the Inside Flap:

PRAISE FOR THE PREVIOUS EDITIONS:

"Set against the grindstone of social class, this story of Lusanna versus Giovanni, gleaned from the archives of Renaissance Florence, throws a floodlight on relations between the sexes. Gene Brucker's wonderful account has remarkable resonance."
Lauro Martines, author of April Blood

In the years since it first appeared, Gene Brucker's Giovanni and Lusanna has attracted a large and loyal readership. There is no better introduction to the complex realities of life (and love) in Florence during the Renaissance.”
William J. Connell, Professor of History and La Motta Chair in Italian Studies, Seton Hall University

"At its core, this splendid study is about stubborn love and the forms of law, and the impossibility of each to accommodate the ultimate claims of the other."
New York Times Book Review
