One of the most important authors of the Middle Ages, Petrarch occupies a complex position: historically, he is a medieval author, but, philosophically, he heralds humanism and the Renaissance. Teachers of Petrarch's Canzoniere and his formative influence on the canon of Western European poetry face particular challenges. Petrarch's poetic style brings together the classical tradition, Christianity, an exalted sense of poetic vocation, and an obsessive love for Laura during her life and after her death in ways that can seem at once very strange and--because of his style's immense influence--very familiar to students. This volume aims to meet the varied needs of instructors, whether they teach Petrarch in Italian or in translation, in surveys or in specialized courses, by providing a wealth of pedagogical approaches to Petrarch and his legacy.

Part 1, "Materials," reviews the extensive bibliography on Petrarch and Petrarchism, covering editions and translations of the Canzoniere, secondary works, and music and other audiovisual and electronic resources. Part 2, "Approaches," opens with essays on teaching the Canzoniere and continues with essays on teaching the Petrarchan tradition. Some contributors use the design and structure of the Canzoniere as entryways into the work; others approach it through discussion of Petrarch's literary influences and subject matter or through the context of medieval Christianity and culture. The essays on Petrarchism map the poet's influence on the Italian lyric tradition as well as on other national literatures, including Spanish, French, English, and Russian.

About the Author:

Christopher Kleinhenz is Carol Mason Kirk Professor Emeritus of the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where he taught medieval Italian literature. Among his publications are The Early Italian Sonnet and Medieval Italy: An Encyclopedia. A fellow of the Medieval Academy of America, he has received the Fiorino d'oro from the Società Dantesca Italiana, as well as awards for distinguished service from CARA, AATI, and the ADFL.

Review:

"A solid and much-needed volume. There is a nice balance between established scholars and younger ones, as well as between essays that range over Petrarch's entire career and those that focus on individual themes or poems." --Jane Tylus, New York University
