This stimulating book focuses on the widespread influence of Petrarch's Canzoniere, poems that for more than a century provided Renaissance Europe with a model of what love poetry should be. Gordon Braden defines Petrarch's innovations, examines how the poet's ideas affected literature throughout western Europe, and analyzes Petrarchism in the vivid work of Mexican religious Sor Juan Inés de la Cruz.
