Scholarly Commentary


DGR's source text for the poem was Raccolta di rime antiche toscane (I. 111), where it is printed first in the selection of works attributed to Guittone. This sonnet is no longer judged his, however, and the author remains unknown.

See DGR's translation for further commentary.
