“With all his gravity, he has the secret of lightness.”  —Italo Calvino

 
Guido Cavalcanti is best known to English readers through the essays, translations, and adaptations of Ezra Pound. Born from the cultural ferment of 13th-century Florence, Cavalcantis poetry is an extraordinary blend of unorthodox philosophy, sharp psychological insight, and dazzling formal mastery. Anthony Mortimer provides a new verse translation complete with notes, critical comment, and biographical material. Following in the footsteps of Rossetti and Pound, he presents a Cavalcanti who speaks for his own time and to ours. This edition includes pictures and an extensive section about the author's life and works.

About the Author

Guido Cavalcanti (c.1258–1300) is one of the greatest Italian poets. Dante's best friend, he is remembered as a leading figure in the group of poets associated with the dolce stil novo (“sweet new style”), a refined form of love poetry. Anthony Mortimer is acclaimed for his translations of Petrarch and Michelangelo.
