Brand new books, dispatch from our warehouse in the UK

From AudioFile&newline;&newline;The reader gives good pace to this excellent summary of an important step in the evolution of Western civilization. Mr. Howard's English is clear and easy to understand; his French and Italian skills are convincing. The narrator's smooth movement through a factual forest adds to the mood of awe the author intended for his subject. There is little opportunity for theatrics or characterization in the text, and the restraint doesn't in any way detract from what is a gifted mix of biographies and history. For any level of reader wanting an accurate, yet succinct, understanding of the Renaissance, this audiobook would both please and inform them. J.A.H. AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine&newline;--This text refers to the &newline;&newline;Audio Cassette&newline;edition. &newline;&newline;Book Description&newline;&newline;The development of the first universities from the 12th century onwards, growing wealth and patronage in certain cities, and above all the invention of printing and cheap paper, provided essential conditions for the Renaissance. And it was in literature and scholarship that it began, in the rebirth of classical culture that loosened the Church's iron grip on visual art. Paul Johnson tells the story, in turn, of Renaissance literature, sculpture, building and painting. Despite the critical importance of inventions outside Italy - printing in Germany and oil painting in Holland - he locates the Renaissance firmly in Italy and in Florence above all, between 1400 and 1560. There are memorable sketches of the key figures - the frugal and shockingly original Donatello, the awesome Michelangelo, the delicacy of Giovanni Bellini. The final part of the book charts the spread and decline of the Renaissance, as the Catholic Church repositioned itself to counter the Reformation which the Renaissance had itself helped to produce.
