內容簡介

Growing Old in Early Modern Europe: Cultural Representations
Campbell (history in art, U. of Victoria, Canada) introduces this study as the first to focus on images of "cultural aging"-- i.e., calendar plus functional age--in Europe from 1350-1700. In 11 essays, scholars examine literary, visual, and medical representations of old age in this major transitional period as reflecting societal values and anxieties, as well as shaping sociopolitical ideas and relations. A very modern-sounding theme is the difference between views of older females and males. The volume features classic art illustrations, which are analyzed in regard to their under-treated age imagery. Annotation 穢2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
