Renaissance Faire

Famous quotes containing the words faire and/or renaissance:

    But Jonnë had a bright sword by his side,
    And it was made of the mettle so free,
    That had not the king stept his foot aside,
    He had smitten his head from his faire bodde.
    Unknown. Johnie Armstrong (l. 45–48)

    People nowadays like to be together not in the old-fashioned way of, say, mingling on the piazza of an Italian Renaissance city, but, instead, huddled together in traffic jams, bus queues, on escalators and so on. It’s a new kind of togetherness which may seem totally alien, but it’s the togetherness of modern technology.
    —J.G. (James Graham)
