The Death of the Child Valerio Marcello


Product Description
Product Details


Valerio Marcello was born to one of the leading families of Venice when the city was at the height of its power. His death at age eight plunged his father-a prominent nobleman, military officer, student of the humanities, and patron of writers and artists-into inconsolable grief. He invited his friends to comment on his late son's virtues and on his love for his son and then commissioned artists to illustrate and assemble this volume. Often, the consolations urged the father to end his unseemly grieving, which, in the eyes of many of his peers, unmanned him. King (Women of the Renaissance, LJ 12/91) has used a 15th-century book of consolations on the death of a child of privilege to draw a vivid portrait of his father and the times in which he lived, while examining the relationship between a father and a son in Renaissance Venice. Recommended for academic libraries with significant holdings in Renaissance studies.-Robert Andrews, Duluth P.L., Minn.
