Rezensionen
"This collection offers a diverse and inclusive selection ofreadings on Renaissance life and culture, from Dante to the laterRenaissance, that will be invaluable to all students of the period.The translations are accessible, and the introductory essays framethe primary sources so that the voices of the age speak withvitality and new purpose."
--Meredith Gill, University of Notre Dame

"This collection includes many old favourites from the pens ofDante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, and Machiavelli, but these are mixedwith important, though less familiar texts, such as several ofAlessandra Strozzi's letters, Valweiano's lament on the sadfortunes of learned men, and Ficino's Tre Vite... teachers ofItalian Renaissance history and culture will find this volume anattractive additionto the all-too-short list of anthologiessuitable for classroom use."
