Antonio Beccadelli – The Hermaphrodite

A exciting new addition to the ever-popular I Tatti Renaissance Library, Holt Parker’s new edition of Antonio Beccadelli is sure to set pulses racing. Beccadelli, poet laureate to the Emperor Sigismund, is credited with rediscovering the art of the Latin epigram and then using it to depict the underbelly of late medieval Italy. A highly controversial figure in his own time for his use of explicit erotic imagery, Beccadelli will be more favourably viewed under today’s sensibilities and we hope this new volume will prove very popular with Blackwell customers, even if parental guidance is required!
