Setting aside Cyndia Susan Clegg's recent warning in a review essay in this journal (RQ 54 : 221-45) that scholars publishing on early print culture must evince
demonstrable expertise in several of the fields prescribed by the newly formed Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing (SHARP), I welcome the appearance of Kallendorf's straightforward case study as a model of its kind in this demanding new field.
The new paintings here, as mysterious as they are lucid, evince

Chapter 3, "The Cultural Background of Lo cunto de li cunti," examines the relations between popular Neapolitan culture and Basile's previous works in dialect: his Lettere (which evince
a vivid nostalgia for Naples) and Le muse napoletane, a series of nine eclogues aimed at preserving the memory of Neapolitan culture.

any special fixation on the medium's relation to the photographic image, popular culture, the readymade, or linguistic signification.
Yet the production's exquisite final moments evince
the psychological subtlety missing elsewhere.
