From the Publisher
"This collection offers a diverse and inclusive selection of readings on Renaissance life and culture, from Dante to the later Renaissance, that will be invaluable to all students of the period. The translations are accessible, and the introductory essays frame the primary sources so that the voices of the age speak with vitality and new purpose."
—Meredith Gill, University of Notre Dame
"This collection includes many old favourites from the pens of Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, and Machiavelli, but these are mixed with important, though less familiar texts, such as several of Alessandra Strozzi's letters, Valweiano's lament on the sad fortunes of learned men, and Ficino's Tre Vite... teachers of Italian Renaissance history and culture will find this volume an attractive additionto the all-too-short list of anthologies suitable for classroom use."
