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

17 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 1,458 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

17 editions published between 1946 and 1978 in 3 languages and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francisco Petrarch, 1304-1374, the first great poet of the Italian Renaissance, stands at the threshold between the Middle Ages and the modern world; his fame as humanist and scholar views with his supreme achievement as an Italian lyricist. The 366 sonnets and odes, ballads, and madrigals that compose the Rime in Vita e Morte di Madonna Laura, or Canzoniere, are perhaps the greatest love poems ever written. They were inspired by Petrarch's life-long passion for a lady--his beautiful, ethereal Laura--whom he saw for the first time when he was in his early twenties and whom he mourned after her death. Though the theme of these poems is hopeless love, they are vigorous, profound, full of desire and conflict, grief and consolation. Petrarch was an innovator in the poetry of human consciousness, striving to understand his own individuality through continouous self-analysis and self-portrayal. He attains a miraculous union of direct speech, music, and personal feeling by joining strict metrical precision with a spontaneous freedom of accent. The effect is extrordinarily modern, fresh and imediate."--Page 4 of cover

The Renaissance philosophy of man : selections in translation by Ernst Cassirer( Book )

27 editions published between 1948 and 2007 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite our admiration for Renaissance achievement in the arts and sciences, in literature and classical learning, the rich and diversified philosophical thought of the period remains largely unknown. This volume illuminates three major currents of thought dominant in the earlier Italian Renaissance: classical humanism (Petrarch and Valla), Platonism (Ficino and Pico), and Aristotelianism (Pomponazzi). A short and elegant work of the Spaniard Vives is included to exhibit the diffusion of the ideas of humanism and Platonism outside Italy." [Back cover]

The revolution of Cola di Rienzo by Francesco Petrarca( Book )

11 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Rome on May 20, 1347, Cola di Rienzo overthrew the rule of the barons and the pope. Cola's revolution then attempted to restore the greatness of the medieval commune, revive the ancient Roman Republic, and usher in a new age of liberty, justice and peace. This bright hope soon changed to disillusionment, as pope and barons conspired to isolate and then topple Rienzo. After a period of exile and wandering, he traveled to Prague where he was eventually arrested, imprisoned by the Inquisition, and turned over to his arch-enemy, Pope Clement VI. In a bizarre turn of events he was freed and retu

Scattered rhymes by Orlando Consort( )

4 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Machaut's extraordinary Messe de Nostre Dome was not only the first complete mass setting in history, but also the first whose composer can be identified, making it emblematic of the Ars Nova style of the 14th century. In this recording, the Orlando Consort performs the mass in parallel with a work by Tarik O'Regan which was inspired by it. Scattered Rhymes links two texts from teh same period as Machaut's mass, on by Petrarch, the other an anonymous English poem. Both of them subtly combine earthyly and divine love, while the music blends polyphonic tradition and contemporary inspiration
