  • Christine de Pizan and the Categories of Differenceby Marilynn Desmond

    University of Minnesota Press 1998; Not Available

    Christine de Pizan, an Italian-born writer in French in the early fifteenth century, composed lyric poetry, debate poetry, political biography, and allegory.

How they do so is the... more...

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 25.95 US$ 23.61

    These translations of the major poems of Giacomo Leopardi (1798--1837) render into modern English verse the work of a writer who is widely regarded as the greatest lyric poet in the Italian literary tradition.
