Francesco Petrarch
White Guelphs Boccaccio , who, like himself, desired to promote humanistic studies and researches. Refusing an offer to assume the rectorship of the Florentine Studio (or University) just established, he resumed his peregrinations, spending a good part of the time at Venice, and accompanied there for a while by Boccaccio and by Leo Pilatus, from whom both he and Boccaccio had hoped to gain some direct knowledge of Greek and its literature. The transfer of the pontifical Court back to Rome in 1367 filled him with unbounded joy. In spite of the magnitude of Petrarch's composition in Latin and the stress which he put upon it himself, his abiding fame is based upon his Italian verse, and this forms two notable compilations, the "Trionfi" and the "Canzoniere". The "Trionfi", written in terza rima , and making large use of the vision already put to so good stead by Dante , is allegorical and moral in its nature. In the "Trionfi" we have a triumphal procession in which there take part six leading allegorical figures: Love, Chastity, Death, Fame, Time, and Divinity. Chastity triumphs over its predecessor, and finally Divinity triumphs over them all and remains supreme, as the symbol of peace, eternal life, and the everlasting union of the poet with his beloved Laura. The "Canzoniere", the poet's masterpiece, and one of the imperishable monuments of the world's literature, was first put into shape by the author and made known by him under the title of "Rerum vulgarium fragmenta". It consists of sonnets (and these are the more numerous) of

2. Poems By Petrarch In English Translation
Small collection with an brief biographical note.
Francesco Petrarcha was born in Arezzo of a family exiled from Florence in 1301. His father was a notary. He studied at Montpellier University and at law school, and became chaplain to Cardinal Colonna. He travelled in France, Flanders and Germany. He met his idealized woman, Laura, in 1327. She died of the Black Death in 1348. His series of love sonnets and other poems strongly influenced subsequent European poetry, for example Wyatt and Sidney in England. He settled at Vaucluse near Avignon, but, after the plague of 1362, moved to Padua and then Arqua, in the Euganean Hills, where he died, in July 1374, on or near his birthday, at the age of seventy.
Petrarch I Diana was never more pleasing to her lover, when, by a stroke of fate, he saw her naked, shown in the deep pool of icy water, than I was by the mountain shepherdess, standing there to wash her delightful veil, that keeps blonde, lovely hair from the wind’s stress, so that, now heaven’s fires overspill, she made me tremble with an amorous chill.

Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Petrarch (1304-1374) - in full Francesco Petrarca Italian scholar, poet, and humanist, a major force in the development of the Renaissance, famous for his poems addressed to Laura, an idealized beloved whom he met in 1327 and who died in 1348. Attempts have been made to identify her, but all that is known is that Petrarch met Laura in Avignon, where he had entered the household of an influential cardinal. She is generally believed to have been the 19-year-old wife of Hugues de Sade. Petrarch saw her first time in the church of Saint Claire. According to several modern scholars, it is possible that Laura was a fictional character. However, she was a more realistically presented female character than in the conventional songs of the troubadours or in the literature of courtly love. "In my youth I was blessed with an agile, active body, though not particularly strong; and while I cannot boast of being very handsome, I was good-looking enough in my younger days. I had a clear complexion, between light and dark, lively eyes, and for many years sharp vision, which, however, unexpectedly deserted me when I passed my sixtieth birthday, and forced me, reluctantly, to resort to the use of glasses. Although I had always been perfectly healthy, old age assailed me with its usual array of discomforts." (from 'Letter to Posterity') Francis Petrarch (Francesco Petrarca) was born in Arezzo as the son of a notary, but he spend his early childhood in a village near Florence. His father, Ser Petracco, was expelled from Florence by the Black Guelfs, who had seized power. Also

Greetings. It is possible that some word of me may have come to you, though even this is doubtful, since an insignificant and obscure name will scarcely penetrate far in either time or space. If, however, you should have heard of me, you may desire to know what manner of man I was, or what was the outcome of my labours, especially those of which some description or, at any rate, the bare titles may have reached you. I possessed a well-balanced rather than a keen intellect, one prone to all kinds of good wholesome study, but especially inclined to al philosophy and the art of poetry. The latter indeed, I neglected as time went on, and took delight in sacred literature. Finding in that it hidden sweetness which I had once esteemed but lightly, I came to regard the works of the poets as only amenities.

You who hear the sound, in scattered rhymes
of those sighs on which I fed my heart, in my first vagrant youthfulness, when I was partly other than I am, I hope to find pity, and forgiveness, for all the modes in which I talk and weep, between vain hope and vain sadness, in those who understand love through its trials. Yet I see clearly now I have become an old tale amongst all these people, so that it often makes me ashamed of myself; and shame is the fruit of my vanities, and remorse, and the clearest knowledge of how the world’s delight is a brief dream.

To His Socrates
What will we do now, brother? Indeed, we have already tried almost everything, and there is no rest anywhere. When can we expect it? Where shall we look for it? Time, as they say, has run through our fingers; our earlier hopes are buried with our friends. It was the year that rendered us lonely and helpless; nor did it take from us the kinds of things that can be restored from the Indian, or Caspian, or Carpathian seas; these latest blows are irreparable, for any wound that death has inflicted is untreatable. Only one comfort remains: we shall follow those whom we have sent before us. How short the wait will be, I do not know; this I know, that it cannot be long. And indeed however short it is, it cannot fail to weigh heavily. But we must restrain ourselves from complaints, at least in the beginning. As for you, brother, what your concerns are and what you are thinking about, I do not know; but I am putting together little bundles and, as wanderers do, I am looking around at what I should bring with me, what I should share among my friends, and what I should commit to the fire. For nothing of mine is for sale. I am, indeed, more richly provided [ ditior ], or rather more fettered

Petrarch, Letter to a friend, 1340-1353
...Now I am living in France, in the Babylon of the West. The sun in its travels sees nothing more hideous than this place on the shores of the wild Rhone, which suggests the hellish streams of Cocytus and Acheron. Here reign the successors of the poor fishermen of Galilee; they have strangely forgotten their origin. I am astounded, as I recall their predecessors, to see these men loaded with gold and clad in purple, boasting of the spoils of princes and nations; to see luxurious palaces and heights crowned with fortifications, instead of a boat turned downward for shelter. We no longer find the simple nets which were once used to gain a frugal sustenance from the lake of Galilee, and with which, having labored all night an caught nothing, they took, at daybreak, a multitude of fishes, in the name of Jesus. One is stupefied nowadays to hear the lying tongues, and to see worthless parchments turned by a leaden seal into nets which are used, in Christ's name, but by the arts of Belial, to catch hordes of unwary Christians. These fish, too, are dressed and laid on the burning coals of anxiety before they fill the insatiable maw of their captors. Instead of holy solitude we find a criminal host and crowds of the most infamous satellites; instead of soberness, licentious banquets; instead of pious pilgrimages, preternatural and foul sloth; instead of the bare feet of the apostles, the snowy coursers of brigands fly past us, the horses decked in gold and fed on gold, soon to be shod with gold, if the Lord does not check this slavish luxury. In short, we seem to be among the kings of the Persians or Parthians, before whom we must fall down and worship, and who cannot be approached except presents be offered. O ye unkempt and emaciated old men, is it for this you labored? Is it for this that you have sown the field of the Lord and watered it with your holy blood? But let us leave the subject.

Francesco Petrarca was born in Italy in 1304. He spent some time in Barcelona following his father’s wish that he study law. When his father died, Petrarch was almost destitute. He became a priest and subsequently gained the friendship of Giacomo Colonna, a Roman nobleman and ecclesiastic. Petrach lived for some years under his patronage. With his first large scale work, Africa —an epic in Latin—Petrarch emerged as a European celebrity. At the same time his skill in writing sonnets in Italian became increasingly evident. In 1327 the sight of a woman called Laura initiated in him a continual outpouring of passion in Italian poems. She was a married women who bore her husband 10 children, and it is quite possible that she and Petrarch never met. He seems to have channeled much of his energy into love poems that were never intended to persuade the subject of his love, while at the same inserting into his prose paragraphs that showed his contempt for men who pursue women He traveled widely, served as an ambassador, and was a prolific letter writer. He collected manuscripts on his travels and was a prime mover in the recovery of knowledge from writers of Rome and Greece. He remarked, “

(ClPro IV.31-33) Francis Petrarch had an enormous influence on English literature, beginning in the sixteenth century the fact that we customarily Anglicize his name, Francesco Petrarca, into "Francis Petrarch" shows how deeply embedded his works are in the English poetic tradition. His poems shaped much of Elizabethan lyric poetry, and Shakespeare's sonnets could not exist without Petrarch's previous sonnets and canzone. Chaucer was the first English writer to know these poems. and centuries before Petrarch's work entered the mainstream of English literature he draws on Petrarch for Troilus' song in Troilus and Criseyda For a text of this sonnet see: Petrarch's "If Love Does Not Exist" Petrarch was as celebrated in his time for his Latin works as for his Italian; (when Chaucer calls him the "laureat poete" he refers to the Latin works. Most, like his ambitious but finally unsuccessful epic Africa (celebrating Scipio Africanus), are now almost forgotten, but his often charming Latin letters (such as the letter to posterity) are still worth reading.

Tale of Griselda
"Give ear, therefore, we pray you, to the entreaties of those who have never refused to do your bidding. You may leave the selection of a wife to our care, for we shall procure you such an one as shall be truly worthy of you, and sprung of so high a lineage that you may have the best hope of her. Free all your subjects, we beseech you, of the grievous apprehension that if anything incident to our mortal lot should happen to you, you would go leaving no successor to yourself, and they would remain deprived of a leader such as their hearts crave." Their loyal entreaties touched the man's heart, and he made answer: "My friends, you constrain me to that which never entered my thoughts. I have had pleasure in complete liberty, a thing which is rare in marriage. Nevertheless I, willingly submit to the wishes of my subjects, trusting in your prudence and your devotion. But I release you from the task, which you have offered to assume, of finding me a wife. "That task I lay on my own shoulders. For what benefit can the distinction of one confer upon another? Right often, children are all unlike their parents. Whatever is good in a man comes not from another, but from God. As I trust to Him all my welfare, so would I entrust to Him the outcome of my marriage, hoping for His accustomed mercy. He will find for me that which shall be expedient for my peace and safety.
