Abstract

LACOSTE, Pablo  and  CASTRO, Amalia. APPRAISAL OF THE FRUIT IN LITERARY WORKS (II): BETWEEN PICARESQUE COMEDIES AND CELEBRATIONS OF POWER (XIV-XVII CENTURIES). Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2013, n.27, pp.13-32. ISSN 0716-5811.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112013000100001.

This article, second in the series, explores the process of rebuilding a culture of appreciation of the fruit in Europe between the late Middle Ages and the Baroque. The focus is on the analysis of literary sources to explain the process. First, we examine the Decameron of Boccaccio (1353) and the Book of Good Love of the Archpriest of Hita (1330-1343). Written under the influence of the Thousand and One Nights (McGrady, 2003), these works have already hinted at the values and sensibilities of the Renaissance, which was then about to begin. From the south of Spain and Italy, the influence of Muslim culture extends from the mosques to the Christian cathedrals and palaces, culminating in the Orangerie of Versailles, in the center of world power.

Keywords : fruit culture; late medieval literature; literature as a historical document; Decameron; Book of Good Love; Orangerie; Versalles.
