"Petrarch's Canzoniere (more formally known as Rerum vulgarium fragmenta), a body of 366 poems, mostly sonnets by including other forms such as madrigals and canzoni, is a central document in the develoment of the sensibility and the literature of western culture. This work marked the intellectual and cultural dividing line between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. I has been seminalin the development of European and American lyric poetry for the ways in w hich the poems closely scrutinize the artistic, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual life of the poet. In this body of poetry, a kind of literary autobiography, Petrarch adumbrated the modern mind." Name., else very good. 35.00
