The Sonnets and Triumphs: and Other Poems of Petrarch
Posted by Francesco Petrarca Thomas Wyatt Anna Hume Sir John Harington

The present translation of Petrarch completes the Illustrated Library series of the Italian Poets emphatically distinguished as I Quattro Poeti Italiani It is rather a singular fact that, while the other three Poets of this world famed series Dante, Ariosto, and Tasso have each found several translators, no complete version of the fourth, and in Italy the most popularThe present translation of Petrarch completes the Illustrated Library series of the Italian Poets emphatically distinguished as I Quattro Poeti Italiani It is rather a singular fact that, while the other three Poets of this world famed series Dante, Ariosto, and Tasso have each found several translators, no complete version of the fourth, and in Italy the most popular, has hitherto been presented to the English reader This lacune becomes the remarkable when we consider the great influence which Petrarch has undoubtedly exercised on our poetry from the time of Chaucer downwards.

    Petrarch himself deserves five stars, of course, but some of the translations in this collection leave much to be desired The translations in this collection are from the Victorian period and before, and I think they are inferior to some recent translations The language often seems stilted Also, the final 20 pages are in Italian, which seems silly since the rest of the book is translated into English
