Inherited and recorded by the Romans, this art of memory passed into the European tradition, to be revived, in occult form, at the Renaissance, and particularly by the strange and remarkable genius, Giordano Bruno.Such is the main theme of Frances Yatess unique and brilliant book, in the course of which she sheds light on such diverse subjects as Dantes Divine Comedy, the form of the Shakespearian theatre and the history of ancient architecture.

Aside from its intrinsic fascination, The Art of Memory is an invaluable contribution to aesthetics and psychology, and to the history of philosophy, of science and of literature.
