to Part II” (in
Early Italian Poets)
Not all scholars accept this poem as by Cecco.
For further general information about Cecco and his work see
the commentary for
“Dante Alighieri, Cecco, your
good friend”). DGR's source text was
rime antiche toscane (II. 159), where the sonnet is attributed to Cecco.
Probably an early translation, late 1840s.
The translation was first published in 1861 in
Early Italian Poets; it was reprinted in 1874 in
and his Circle.
