Synopsis: This is a translation of 60 poems from Petrarch's Canzoniere, readable as English verse but also faithful to Petrarchan technique and structure, with a mixture of full rhyme and half-rhymes. The selection includes poetry from the first and second parts of the Canzoniere (known as in vita and in mote) and includes samples of all the various forms - the dominant sonnnet and canzone, and also the sestina and the madrigal. as well as the love poetry.

About the Author: Francesco Petrarch (1304-1374), scholar and man of letters, is considered the father of sonnet-writing. Although the majority of his work was composed in Latin, it is his collection of poems in the vernacular entitled 'Canzoniere' for which he is most remembered. Anthony Mortimer holds the Chair of English Literature at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, and has been a Visiting Fellow at Merton College, Oxford. Publications include 'Petrarch's Canzoniere in the English Renaissance'

Book Description Penguin UK, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. On Good Friday 1327 the poet Petrarch first saw and fell in love with a young woman he called Laura. Written over a period of more than forty years, the poems of the Canzoniere are an intense and passionate discourse on his unrequited love. The 'lovely hand, gripping my heart so tight' provokes moods that range from melancholy, resignation and remorse to jubilant hope and spiritual exaltation.Petrarch has been described as the father of Renaissance humanism and is the undisputed founder of the sonnet sequence. The massive range of his works in Latin made him famous in his lifetime, but it is the Canzoniere, in the vernacular Italian, that provided a rhetoric of introspection for later Renaissance sonneteers such as Edmund Spencer and Philip Sidney. This bilingual edition is a selection of sixty poems and remains faithful to Petrarchan structure and technique, with a lyrical and moving English translation. Paperback.
