Scholarly Commentary


This Sicilian school sonnet, apparently written by a woman, is a fairly early work. DGR's source text was Trucchi's Poesie Italiane inedite (I. 54); the manuscript source describes it as a ballad for two voices.

For further editorial information see the commentary for DGR's translation of the ballata.
