Scholarly Commentary


This selection comes from from Book IV chapter 25 of Fazio degli Uberti's long didactic work in terza rime, Il Dittamondo. It is one of two passages chosen by DGR for translation from Fazio's work. DGR's source text was the 1826 Milano edition edited by Vincenzo Monti.

For further commentary see the editorial notes for DGR's translation of the other selection from the Dittamondo.
