In the four and a half centuries since Machiavelli's death, no single and unanimously accepted interpretation of his ideas has succeeded in imposing itself upon the lively debate over the meaning of his works. Yet there has never been any doubt about the fundamental importance of Machiavelli's contribution to Western political theory. The Portable Machiavelli brings together the complete texts of The Prince, Belfagor, and Castruccio Castracani, newly translated by Peter Bondanella and Mark Musa especially for this volume. In addition, the editors include an abridged version of The Discourses; a play, The Mandrake Root, in its entirety; seven private letters; and selections from The Art of War and The History of Florence

Six characters in search of an author and other plays by Luigi Pirandello( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pirandello (1867-1936) is the founding architect of twentieth-century drama, brilliantly innovatory in his forms and themes, and in the combined energy, imagination and visual colours of his theatre. This volume of plays, translated from the Italian by Mark Musa, opens with Six Characters in Search of an Author, Pirandello's most popular and controversial work in which six characters invade the stage and demand to be included in the play. The tragedy "Henry IV" dramatizes the lucid madness of a man who may be King. In "So It Is (If You Think So)", the townspeople exercise a morbid curiosity attempting to discover 'the truth' about the Ponza family."--Publisher description

The Canzoniere, or, Rerum vulgarium fragmenta by Francesco Petrarca( Book )

22 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 405 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
