The English translation of "Lo Somni", a prose dialogue written around 1397 by the Catalan humanist Bernat Metge (c.1340-1413). It stands as a noteworthy example of nascent humanism and a vivid document of contemporary customs in the Crown of Aragon. Richard Vernier provides an extensive original introduction, as well as an annotated translation of the text. In the introduction, Vernier places the text in its historical and cultural background, and supplies a brief biography of the author. He discusses literary antecedents of "Lo Somni" and its value in the development of Catalan prose. He also traces the history of the text from the Middle Ages to its rediscovery in the 19th century.
