About this Item

Beyond making available in English the important work of a major Neo-Latin poet, this book provides provocative material for those interested in the development of English poetry, showing the kinship between Sannazaro's poems and English poetry from the days of Spenser, Herrick, and Jonson until well into the 18th century. To provide a more critical and comprehensive understanding of the period in which Sannazaro lived, Ralph Nash had provided scholarly introductions for each of the twenty-four elegies. For the sake of accuracy and completeness, the major poems have been presented in prose translation. To suggest how these poems might have helped mold the poetic sensibilities of readers in 17th or 18th century England, Nash has translated into rhymed couplets several elegies and has added a selection of representative epigrams. The result is a splendid historical, literary, and cross-cultural sampling of the best regarded Latin poet of the time. - Verlagsneues Exemplar.
