Scholarly Commentary


Giovanni Quirino (or Quirini), the Venetian imitator and admirer of Dante, was exiled from his native city in 1310. This sonnet would date some few years after that, though its relation to Dante is more problematic than DGR and DGR's sources understood. See the commentary for DGR's translation.
