Summary

┐Petrarch fashioned so many different versions of himself for posterity that it is an exacting task to establish where one might start to explore. . . . Hainsworth┐s study meets this problem through examples of what Petrarch wrote, and does so decisively and succinctly. ┐. . . [A] careful and unpretentious book, penetrating in its organization and treatment of its subject, gentle in its guidance of the reader, nimble and dexterous in its scholarly infrastructure┐and no less profound for those qualities of lightness. ┐The translations themselves are a delight, and are clearly the result of profound meditation and extensive experiment. . . . The Introduction and the notes to each work form a clear plexus of support for the reader, with a host of deft cross-references.┐ ┐Richard Mackenny, Binghamton University, State University of New York
