Vita nuova by Dante Alighieri ( Book )
13 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this new edition Musa views Dante's intention as one of cruel and comic commentary on the shallowness and self-pity of his protagonist, who only occasionally glimpses the true nature of love. "" ... the explication de texte which accompanies [Musa's] translation is instructively novel, always admirable ... This present work offers English readers a lengthy appraisal which should figure in future scholarly discussions.""--Choice]]>

Set against the background of the Black Death of 1348, the hundred linked tales are peopled by nobles, knights, abbots, nuns, doctors, lawyers, philosophers, students, artists, tradesmen, troubadours, peasants, pilgrims, servants, spendthrifts, thieves, parasites, gluttons, gamblers - and lovers, both faithful and faithless. Unabashedly earthy in its sensuality, The Decameron recaptures both the tragedies and comedies of life and is one of the greatest achievements in the history of literature--from Cover

The Canzoniere, or, Rerum vulgarium fragmenta by Francesco Petrarca ( )
14 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Petrarch's personification of the hapless lover has become one of our major models. Indeed, in many of his poems of the pain and the bitter pleasure of love, we recognize a vivid and timely picture of existential man. Humble sinner, aesthete, contemplative, man of the world, secretly tormented spirit, droll observer, and advocate of life, Petrarch's protagonist in these poems possesses a personality as complex as was the nature of his time. The 366 poems of Petrarch's Canzoniere form one of the most influential books of poetry in Western literature. Varied in form style, and subject matter, these "scattered rhymes" contain metaphors and conceits that have been absorbed into the literature and language of love. In this definitive bilingual edition of the Canzoniere, Mark Musa provides verse translations, annotations, and an introduction co-authored with Barbara Manfredi

An introduction and notes accompany this classic epic poem about a spiritual pilgrim being led by Virgil through the nine circles of hell. This vigorous translation of Inferno reserves Dante's simple, natural style, and captures the swift movement of the original Italian verse. Mark Musa's blank verse rendition of the poet's journey through the circles of Hell re-creates for the modern reader the rich meanings that Dante's poem had for his contemporaries. Musa's introduction and commentaries on each of the cantos brilliantly illuminate the text
