Editorial Reviews

Review

The translations are extremely readable, and their juxtaposition to the original makes the work a valuable tool for the reader whose knowledge of Italian may be less than perfect. (Joseph A. Barber, MLN)

Format: Paperback
Durling, one of this generations greatest scholars in Italian lyric poetry, captures the essence of Petrarch's fragmented soul as none other has yet been able to in an english translation. The text includes facing page Italian (so it is excellent for students of the Langauge) and Durling has done everything possible to preserve the lyric beauty of Petrarch's verse.
Yet one must remeber that this is not a critical edition. Durlings commentary (if one can call it that) leaves much to be desired. Suprising also is the fact that Durling completely ignores the division in two parts (traditionally called "in life", 1-263 and "in death" 264-366. Petrarch clearly intended there to be a division, leaving blank pages in the Vatican manuscript, Vat. Lat. 3195. For those who desire a critical edition I would recomend Marco Santagata's 1996 edition (Mondadori), however it is entirely in Italian.

Format: Paperback
Everyone should read the beautiful and romantic poems by Francesco Petrarca, one of the great masters of Italian literature! Scholar Robert M. During has masterfully translated the Canzoniere poems in this bi-lingual edition, allowing you to enjoy them in either the original Italian or English.
