Written while Boethius was in prison, in the period leading up to his brutal execution, this is a dialogue of alternating prose and verse between the ailing prisoner and his 'nurse' Philosophy, whose instruction on the nature of fortune and happiness, good and evil, fate and free will, restore his health and bring him to enlightenment. The clarity of the author's thought and his breadth of vision made this book hugely popular throughout medieval Europe and his ideas suffused the thought of Chaucer and Dante

"Vengono qui riunite per la prima volta le lettere superstiti di quello che fu l'epistolario di Benedetto Varchi, lungo un arco di tempo compreso fra il 1535 e il 1565. In buona parte queste lettere furono originariamente indirizzate a personaggi di prima grandezza del nostro maturo Rinascimento (tra gli altri, Bembo, Caro, Aretino, Molza, Vettori), venendo in tal modo ad attestare la complessità degli interessi varchiani: filosofia, poesia, filologia, storia, grammatica, questi alcuni degli argomenti trattati, a riprova di un'estrema versatilità intellettuale, elementi, tutti, che fecero del Varchi un vero e proprio punto di riferimento. Insieme a tutto ciò, queste pagine ripercorrono a più riprese le congiunture politiche del tempo, con una particolare attenzione rivolta ai fuorusciti fiorentini antimedicei, ad alcuni dei quali Varchi restò vicino per la sua intera esistenza" (source : éditeur)
