The manuscript has glosses in two hands. One set of annotations--identified as by Ferrarese humanist, Ludovico Carbone--in a cursive northern-Italian script occurs throughout the manuscript, indicating passages of interest with marginal brackets, pointing fingers, "Nota," or "N," and frequently providing the proper names of historical persons and literary characters alluded to in both works. A second unidentified hand in a crabbed humanistic cursive provides a fuller set of annotations on the Trionfi alone

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

24 editions published between 1948 and 2007 in English and held by 426 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 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

Slavitt renders the sonnets in Il Canzoniere, along with the shorter madrigals and ballate, in a sparkling and engaging idiom and in rhythm and rhyme that do justice to Petrarch's achievement."
Hieroglyph of time : the Petrarchan sestina by Marianne Shapiro( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hieroglyph of Time was first published in 1981. "A dance of the intellect among words," Ezra Pound called the sestina. A poetic form invented by a Provençal troubadour, Arnaut Daniel, the sestina was elaborated and refined by Petrarch and is used today exactly as it was created. In Hieroglyph of Time, the first critical study of the sestina, Marianne Shapiro analyzes poems by Daniel, Petrarch, Pontus de Tyard, Sannazaro, Sidney, Spenser, Auden, Pound, Merwin, and Ashbery and discusses sestinas composed in German and Portuguese. In so doing, she traces a strand that links modern to Medieval poetry. Shapiro's methodology demonstrates, furthermore, that it is possible to reconcile the language of structuralism with a historical approach to literary scholarship. Hieroglyph of Time begins with a general introduction to theories of temporality and a chronological discussion of the sestina tradition. The repetition of end words in the sestina makes the form a reflection on time, and the sestina itself, Shapiro argues, is a poignant and searching exploration of temporality. The heart of the book is devoted to an explication of five of Petrarch's sestinas. Shapiro pursues Renaissance imitations of the Petrarchan sestina in the work of Pontus de Tyard, a member of the Pléiade who adapted the sestina in a neoplatonic mode, and of Spenser and Sidney, who made the sestina a pastoral poem. After examining twentieth-century uses of the pastoral, she recapitulates her survey, returning to Italian literature to see how the ship allegory is used by three poets in the Medieval, Renaissance, and modern periods -- Petrarch, Michelangelo, and Ungaretti
