Tuscan Poetry of the Duecento: An Anthologyby Frede Jensen
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
An anthology that covers the period in Italian poetry which extends from the Sicilian School to the stilnovisti, shedding new light on the works of the pioneers of the Sicilian-Provencal tradition. A lengthy introduction discusses the poetic language used, the troubador tradition, the use of ornate animal imagery, and versification and poetic form. It then provides brief biographical sketches of the poets represented and a summary of the manuscript tradition. The two dozen poets translated here include many important figures as well as many lesser and more obscure poets. Textual notes to the poems are provided.
