Poems by Cristoforo Landino( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 244 libraries worldwide
"Cristoforo Landino (1424-1498), one of the great scholar-poets of the Renaissance, is best known today for his Plaronizing commentaries on Dante and Virgil. His most substantial work of poetry was his Three Books on Xandra, written while still a young man. They consist primarily of love poetry in Latin directed to his lady-love Alessandra, but they also chronicle his life, friendships, interests, and growing political awareness. Inspired equally by the ancient Roman love-elegy and by Petrarch's Canzoniere, the poems illustrate the mingling of classical and vernacular traditions characteristic of the age of Lorenzo de' Medici. Also included in this volume is the Carmina Varia, a collection whose centerpiece is a group of elegies directed to the Venetian humanist Bernardo Bembo. These bring to life the Platonic passion Bembo conceived for Ginevra de' Benci, later the subject of a famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci. This edition contains the first translation of both works into English."--Jacket

"'The Divine Comedy' begins in a shadowed forest on Good Friday in the year 1300. It proceeds on a journey that, in its intense recreation of the depths and the heights of human experience, has become the key with which Western civilization has sought to unlock the mystery of its own identity. Allen Mandelbaum's astonishingly Dantean translation, which captures so much of the life of the original, renders whole for us the masterpiece that genius whom our greatest poets have recognized as a central model for all poets. This Everyman's edition -- containing in one volume all three cantos, 'Inferno, ' 'Purgatorio, ' and 'Paradiso' -- includes an introduction by Nobel Prize-winning poet Eugenio Montale, a chronology, notes, and a bibliography. Also included are forty-two drawings selected from Botticelli's marvelous late-fifteenth century series of illustrations." ***"An epic poem in which the poet describes his spiritual journey through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise -- guided first by the poet Virgil and then by his beloved Beatrice -- which results in a purification of his religious faith."

When in 1939 Friedrich Klingners new edition of Horatius, published in theBibliotheca Teubneriana deposed the hitherto authoritative text edited by Vollmer, this had an epoch-making effect on both teaching and research. Klingners text held a leading position internationally over many decades. Klingners edition was a keystone in particular for students of Latin in the tradition of German grammar schools and universities. Even today, scholars continually have recourse to Klingners constitution of the text. Following numerous enquiries from customers, the publishers have decided to re-issue Klingners Horatius text as an unrevised reprint of the 3rd edition from 1959
