Scholarly Commentary


This splendid poem was sometimes attributed to Dante and in fact was printed among Dante's canzoni in the edition that DGR used, the Fraticelli (1834) edition of Dante's Opere Minori. Fraticelli's notes informed DGR that the author was Fazio, not Dante.

For further commentary see the editorial notes for DGR's translation.
