9780674021969: Angelo Poliziano: Letters - Volume 1, Books I-IV (The I Tatti Renaissance Library) (Latin and English Edition)

Angelo Poliziano (1454-1494) was one of the great scholar-poets of the Italian Renaissance and the leading literary figure of the Age of Lorenzo de' Medici, "il Magnifico." His correspondence gives us an intimate glimpse of the revival of classical literature from the pen of a man at the very center of the Renaissance movement. This volume illuminates his close friendship with the philosopher Pico della Mirandola and includes much of the correspondence concerning the composition and reception of his Miscellanies, a revolutionary work of philology. It also includes his famous and moving letter on the death of Lorenzo de' Medici. This volume contains the first modern edition of the Latin text and the first translation of the letters into English.

About the Author:

Shane Butler is Associate Professor of Classics, University of California, Los Angeles.

Review:

Any new edition of such an important work is a landmark, for which all students of literary and intellectual life in fifteenth century Florence will be grateful. They will also join me in expressing the hope that it will be completed as soon as reasonably possible. (Nigel Wilson Eikasmos 2007-12-01)
