“Table of Poets” in
Early Italian Poets vol. 1,
Valeriani and Lampredi, Poeti del primo secolo vol. 1,
Le rime della scuola siciliana vol. 1, 55.
DGR's translation of the original sonnet is exceedingly free,
even in the deployment of its rhymes. But the result is so successful as poetry, particularly the exquisite sestet,
that one can hardly find fault with the liberties he took.
The source text is
del Primo Secolo (I. 302).
As with most of DGR's translations of the early Italian poets,
the date of this cannot be precisely determined. It is probably an early translation.
The translation was first published in 1861 in
Early Italian Poets; it was reprinted in 1874 in
and his Circle.
