Abstract

Famous for his Book of the courtier, Baldassarre Castiglione also composed works in neo-Latin that have never been the subject of systematic, critical scrutiny within the broader context of early Cinquecento court culture. Nor have these works been cast against those of his long-forgotten counterpart, the very person behind Alcon, his own masterpiece in neo-Latin poetry, Domizio Falcone. This princeps edition does this while introducing Falcone to scholars and students not only of Italian Renaissance literature, but also of the history of ideas, the classical tradition, the history of human sexuality, and the history of language
