Kurzbeschreibung

15. Mai 2006 Other Voice in Early Modern Europe
Thanks to her acclaimed volume of poetry and prose published in France in 1555, Louise Labé (1522-66) remains one of the most important and influential women writers of the Continental Renaissance. Best known for her exquisite collection of love sonnets, Labé played off the Petrarchan male tradition with wit and irony, and her elegies respond with lyric skill to predecessors such as Sappho and Ovid. The first complete bilingual edition of this singular and broad-ranging female author, Complete Poetry and Prose also features the only translations of Labé's sonnets to follow the exacting rhyme patterns of the originals and the first rhymed translation of Labé's elegies in their entirety.

Louise Labe (1522-66) remains one of the most important and influential women writers of the Renaissance.

The first complete bilingual edition of this singular female author, "Complete Poetry and Prose" also features the only translations of Labe's sonnets to follow the exacting rhyme patterns of the originals and the first rhymed translation of Labe's elegies in their entirety.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Indispensable for the French Lit enthusiast 20. März 2007
Von Sherringford Clark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is an excellent edition of the complete works of Louise Labe, who is one of the most important women writers of the French Renaissance and whose poetry is especially wonderful, providing a much-needed female perspective on the love lyric. One mustn't ignore Labe's prose however, for her "Debate of Folly and Love" is an excellent addition to the literary tradition of the debate and showcases Labe's proto-feminism.

Deborah Lesko Baker provides excellent introductions to Labe's poetry and prose, describing her life and times and her relation to other Renaissance writers (esp. Christine de Pisan). Baker illuminates Labe's role as a distinctively female writer and how her sonnets respond to those of Petrarch. Essentially, then, Baker provides all the background necessary for a full understanding of Labe, and she also supplies copious and helpful footnotes to Labe's works.

In addition, Annie Finch's translations of Labe's poetry are superb, capturing the spirit of the originals (of course, the french is on the facing page). All in all, this is an essential purchase for anyone interested in Labe or French Renaissance literature, being the only complete bilingual edition of Labe's works available and a model for all scholarly editions of its kind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A moving saga, poignant yet explosive ! 14. Mai 2007
Von Carol Tanjutco - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
My mentor Lee Slonimsky (of Pythagoras In Love) highly recommended this
author because of the similarity in the tone of our "walking poems".
The prose and poetry by Louise Labe, with excellent translation by Annie Finch, depicts a poignant tale of love and passion that transcends death.
The markings in her tombstone brought me tears, while her sizzling passionate poem (of kisses) mirrors my own romantic expressions in poetry.
Simply loved it! Kudos to Annie Finch for capturing such fine moments of a French lover, in English.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Labe, a woman after my own heart 7. August 2012
Von Marie Sharon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I became aware of Louise Labe in grad school where I did a paper on her work. I found her rollickingly lusty and forthright and loved that about her, especially as she was writing at a time (16th century Europe) when women were decidedly meant to be kept quiet. Her work is littered with classical allusions and deep references so that it is rich and requires rereading if one is to garner as much as one can from it. Fortunately, this is not a chore, but very enjoyable. It is not difficult to read. It is sometimes uproariously erotic and sometimes trenchantly serious and melancholy. Her eroticism is gloriously raw and immediate. Some critics and researchers tend to deny its pungency but, as ever, I am in the opposite court. Women have always known what is erotic, intriguing. It is only those who would buy into the man's world of female subservience who strive to deny her earthiness. One of her most interesting and enjoyable techniques is to use double entendre and this requires a bilingual edition (which this is) to fully appreciate the ambiguities of her work. She uses words that are perfectly acceptable but which also might have a more erotic connotation, a thinly veiled or a heavily emphasized "other" meaning. This provides a great deal of fun reading her poetry, figuring out where she is coming from or heading. She is also not backward in giving as good a women got back then and does not let her lovers off easy when they try to put her in her place. I heartily recommend Labe.

I also cannot strongly enough recommend the Other Voices series from the University of Chicago Press, of which this is one.
