About this title


In a time when educated men spoke and wrote in Latin as easily as their native tongues, a huge volume of Latin verse was published, not only by scholars but by men in every walk of life. This anthology includes the poetry of Petrarch, Boccaccio, Castigliione, and Sanazaro Ariosto among the Italians; Du Bellay and Michel de l'Hopital in France; Melanchthon and Erasmus in Germany and the Low Countries; and More in England.

Originally published in 1979.
