Lyric Poetry by Women of the Italian Renaissance is the first modern anthology of verse by Italian women of this period to give a full representation of the richness and diversity of their output. Although familiar authors such as Vittoria Colonna, Gaspara Stampa, and Veronica Gambara are well represented, half of the fifty-four poets featured are unknown even to many specialists. Especially noteworthy is an extensive selection of verse from the period following 1560, which has received little or no critical attention. This later, strikingly experimental, proto-Baroque tradition of verse is reconstructed here for the first time. Virginia Cox creates both a scholarly teaching resource and a collection of poetry accessible to general readers with no previous knowledge of the Italian poetic tradition. Each poem is presented in its original language, accompanied by a translation and commentary. An introduction traces the history of Italian lyric poetry from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century. Cox also provides a guide to meter, rhythm, and rhyme, as well as a glossary of rhetorical terms and a biographical dictionary of authors. Organized thematically, this book offers poems about love, religion, and politics; verse addressed to patrons, friends, family, and places; and polemical and correspondence verse. Four languages are represented: Greek, Latin, literary Tuscan of various levels of standardization, and the stylized rustic dialect of pavan. The volume contains more than 200 poems, of which about a quarter have never before been published in a modern edition and more than a third have not previously been available in English translation.

This is a bilingual anthology encompassing work by three generations of poets. It is intended to introduce readers to both experimental and more traditional currents of Italian poetry during the second half of this century. The first generation (poets born before 1935) includes such names as Nobel Prize Winner Eugenio Montale and Pier Paolo Pasolini, together with avant-garde poets like Andrea Zanzotto and Edoardo Sanguineti. The poetry of the second generation (born between 1935 and 1945) reveals a clear need to come to terms with the radical experimentation of the past; included are the late Antonio Porta and Nanni Cagnone. The section dedicated to the youngest generation (those born after 1945) features poets ranging from Valerio Magrelli to the leader of the neo-neo-avant-garde, Lello Voce. It also includes selections of prose poetry representative of the recent exploration of directions pioneered by Dino Campana.

Excerpt from The Introduction of Classical Metres Into Italian Poetry and Their Development to the Beginning of the Nineteenth Century: A Dissertation The introduction of classical metres into Italian poetry took place in the year 1441. Leon Battista Alberti was the first to reproduce the hexameter and the elegiac distich. Leonardo Dati introduced an imitation of the Sapphic ode in the same year. Ludovico Ariosto invented the unrhymed hendecasyllabic with a final proparoxyton, while Bernardo Tasso attempted to introduce a new system of hendecasyllabics in which the rhyme occurred as far apart as every fifth verse.
