Like his translation of the canzonetta
“Of his Lady, and of his making her Likeness”, this
is quite a free rendering, particularly in the octave. DGR doesn't
even hold strictly to Lentino's rhyme scheme. DGR's source text is
del primo secolo (I. 291).
As with most of DGR's translations of the early Italian poets,
the date of this cannot be precisely determined. DGR probably wrote it early, in
the late 1840s.
The translation was first published in 1861 in
Early Italian Poets; it was reprinted in 1874 in
and his Circle.
