Petrarch: A Critical Guide to the Complete Works (Hardback)
We will contact you when this item is next available to order.
Although Francesco Petrarca (1304-1374) is best known today for his Italian poetry, he was also a philosopher, historian, orator, and one of the foremost classical scholars of his age. "Petrarch: A Critical Guide to the Complete Works" is the only comprehensive, single-volume source to which anyone - scholar, student, or general reader - can turn for information on each of Petrarch's works, its place in the poet's oeuvre, and a critical exposition of its defining features. A sophisticated but accessible handbook that illuminates Petrarch's love of classical culture, his devout Christianity, his public celebrity, and his struggle for inner peace, this encyclopedic volume covers both Petrarch's Italian and Latin writings and the various genres in which he excelled: poem, tract, dialogue, oration, and letter. A biographical introduction and chronology anchor the book, making Petrarch an invaluable resource for specialists in Italian, comparative literature, history, classics, religious studies, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance.
