RES: Cavalli on Kaborycha: It. Women 1375-1650
Reply #52 - 07.06.2016 at 09:13:28
 
Jennifer Cavalli on:
Lisa Kaborycha: A Corresponding Renaissance : Letters Written by Italian Women, 1375-1650, New York : Oxford University Press 2015   |   ISBN 978-0-19-934243-3
("H-Italy" 2016-06)

 
Quote:
Kaborycha’s criteria in selecting letters was to offer “snapshots of individual women’s lives and illuminate aspects of Renaissance society and culture as experienced by women as a whole” (p. 24). There are a total of fifty-five letters throughout the eight chapters. The addressees of the letters include family members, both male and female, lovers, confessors, friends, and spouses. Each chapter ranges in number of letters from five (2: “Humanism and Its Discontents”) to nine (5: “Love and Friendship”), and the dates range from Catherine of Siena with a 1378 letter (chapter 1, letter 1) to Elena Lucrezia Corner Piscopia with a 1679 letter (chapter 8, letter 55). Each chapter begins with introductory context that addresses the letters as a whole and what they show with respect to the chapter titles: 1: “The Active Versus the Contemplative Life”; 2: “Humanism and Its Discontents”; 3: “Governing the Household/Governing the State”; 4: “Mothers and Children”; 5: “Love and Friendship”; 6: “Literature and Leisure”; 7: “Art: Patrons and Painters”; 8: “Inquiring Minds: Science and Philosophy.” The background of each author is carefully reconstructed and letters are set in both the larger context of the author’s literary and epistolary production and the particular context of the selected letter’s contents. Some of the women included in the volume wrote many letters, such as Veronica Gambara and Vittoria Colonna. In such cases, Kaborycha sticks to the expressions that characterize the chapter headings. With Colonna, who appears in chapter 5, Kaborycha explains that her selection was determined by highlighting Colonna’s relationship with Michaelangelo and thus her interest in the visual arts, instead of “exquisite examples of epistolary style, potent expressions of feeling, or descriptions of striking contemporary events” (p. 26). In other cases, the letter that appears in the volume is the only surviving letter of the author, such as in the case of Marietta Corsini (chapter 5, letter 29). Kaborycha includes voices little heard, such as Cecelia Liconella (chapter 5, letter 28) and Margherita Aratori (chapter 7, letter 45). Moreover, while some of the authors are well known for other types of writing, such as Veronica Franco (chapter 4, letter 24) and Olimpia Fulvia Morata (chapter 1, letter 5), the focus on epistolary production brings a complexity to women’s lived experience, at times revealing personal and professional struggle, as well as a variety of motivations and various modes of self-representation. For example, the widow Maria Salviati’s motivation for her 1531 letter to a Giovanni (chapter 3, letter 17) was to resist family pressure to remarry. Cassandra Chigi, on the other hand, looks to her mother and family resources to ease the economic constraints of raising seven children in the country after her husband was banished from Siena in 1539 (chapter 4, letter 23). The painter Artemisia Gentileschi focuses her letter to a patron on her professional persona and abilities, revealing extensive knowledge of the business aspect of the art world (chapter 7, letter 48). Responding to a request for a discount, Gentileschi writes, “I must say that the higher the price, the harder I will strive to make a painting pleasing to Your Most Illustrious Lordship and which will suit my taste and yours” (p. 228).
