“Table of Poets” inEarly Italian Poets vol. 1,xviii.
Nothing of this author, who flourished in the late thirteenth-century, is
known. DGR's source text isPoeti del primo secolo (II. 159). The designation of the poem as a ballata is DGR's but it
is not strictly speaking correct.
Probably late 1840s or early 1850s.
The translation was first published in 1861 inThe Early Italian Poets; it was reprinted in 1874 inDante and his Circle
