For centuries, Catiglione's perfect courtier provided a model for the educated classes of Europe; but its colorful dialogues explore vital ethical issues: Should the courtier consciously use "image-management" or rely on natural talents to gain attention? Should he obey the orders of an immoral prince? Sexual equality, modesty and the province of wit are contemplated by nineteen men and four women in this work which influenced Wyatt, Sidney, Spenser, Shakespeare, and later Yeats. [via]
