    Excerpt from The Book of the Courtier

    The popularity long enjoyed by this Old book, the place that it holds in Italian literature, and the fact that it is almost inaccessible to English readers, seem to furnish sufficient reason for a new translation.

    The art Of the Italian Renaissance delights us by its delicate and gentle beauty, and yet we know that life during this period was Often gross and violent. TO understand this, we must remember that art is more the expres sion Of the ideal than Of the actual, and that men's ideals are loftier than their practice. Castiglione gives utterance to the finest aspirations of his time. His pages will lack interest only when mankind ceases to be interesting to man, and will reward study so long as the past shall continue to instruct the present and the future.
