Scholarly Commentary


Although the poem is assigned to Boccaccio in Raccolta di Rime Antiche Toscani, which was DGR's source text for his translation, current scholarship does not include the sonnet in the poet's corpus. DGR's translation alters slightly the sestet's rhyme scheme. See DGR's translation for further commentary.
