Francesco Petrarca (13041374), one of the greatest of Italian poets, was also the leading spirit in the Renaissance movement to revive literary Latin, the language of the Roman Empire, and Greco-Roman culture in general. My Secret Book (Secretum) records the private conflict of my thoughts, in the form of a dialogue between Franciscus and Augustinus in the presence of a beautiful woman, Truth personified. The discussion reveals remarkable self-awareness as Petrarca probes and evaluates the springs of his own morally dubious addictions to Fame and Love.

As a work of autobiographyor, rather, of literary self-fashioningPetrarchs Secretum evokes many comparisons but admits few equalsNicholas Mann is to be applauded for having produced a volume that at last does full justice both to the elegance of Petrarchs prose and to the sophistication of his thoughtThere can be no doubt that Manns volume is a jewel in the crown of Petrarchan scholarship. It deserves to be cherished by readers for generations to come. -- Alexander Lee * Renaissance Quarterly * Its the careful, hard-working crew at Harvard Universitys I Tatti Renaissance Library who produced the best translation of 2016 with this meticulously-rendered and marvelously sensitive scholarly edition of Petrarchs most quietly astonishing work, a work of plaintive and rigorous self-examination cast in the form of a dialogue with St. Augustine. The I Tatti Library has been uniformly excellent, but even so, this volume stands out. -- Steve Donoghue * Open Letters Monthly *
