GREEK AND LATIN POETRY

LATIN POETRY

ANGELO POLIZIANO

LUDOVICO ARIOSTO

Edited and translated by Peter E. Knox

Edited and translated by Dennis Looney
and D. Mark Possanza

Angelo Poliziano (1454-1494) was one of
the great scholar-poets of the Renaissance and
a leading figure in Florence during the Age of
the Medici. His poetry, composed in a variety
of meters, includes epigrams, elegies, and verse
epistles, as well as translations of Hellenistic
Greek poets. Among the first Latin poets of
the Renaissance to be inspired by Homer and
the poems of Greek Anthology,
Poliziano's verse ranges from love
songs to funeral odes, from prayers
to hymns, from invectives directed
against his rivals to panegyrics
of his teachers, artists, fellow
humanists, and his great patron,
Lorenzo de' Medici, "il Magnifico."
The present volume includes all of
Poliziano's Greek and Latin poetry
(with the exception of the Silvae,
itrl 14), all translated into English
for the first time.

ON HUMAN WORTH
AND EXCELLENCE
GIANNOZZO MANETTI

Edited and translated by Brian P. Copenhaver

Giannozzo Manetti (1396-1459), was a
celebrated diplomat, historian, philosopher,
and humanist scholar of the early Renaissance
who mastered ancient Greek and Hebrew as well
as classical Latin. In this treatise, dedicated to
Alfonso of Aragon, King of Naples, Manetti
addresses a question central to the anthropology
of the Renaissance: what are the moral, intellectual, and spiritual capabilities of the unique amalgam of body and soul that constitutes human
nature? This edition contains the first complete
translation into English.

Ludovico Ariosto (1474-1533), one of
Italy's greatest poets, was a leading figure of
sixteenth-century Italian humanism. Ariosto's
Latin poems, translated into English for the first
time in this volume, are remarkable for their
erudition, technical virtuosity, and playfulness.
This edition provides a new Latin text, the first
to be based on a collation of the
autograph manuscript and editio
princeps, and offers a unique insight
into the Latin formation of one of
the Renaissance's foremost
vernacular writers.

COMMENTARIES
Volume 3: Books V-VII
PIUS II

Edited by Margaret Meserve

The diaries of Pius II give us an
intimate glimpse of the life and
thought of one of the greatest of the Renaissance
popes. Pius II (1405-1464) began life as Aeneas
Silvius Piccolomini in a small town near Siena
and became a famous Latin poet and diplomat.
Originally an opponent of the papacy as well
as something of a libertine, Aeneas eventually
reconciled himself with the Roman church and
became a priest, then a cardinal. Finally he was
elected Pope Pius II (1458) and dedicated his
pontificate to organizing a pan-European crusade
against the Ottoman Empire. Pius's Commentaries,
the only autobiography ever written by a pope,
was composed in elegant humanistic Latin
modeled on Caesar and Cicero. This edition
contains a fresh Latin text based on the last
manuscript written in Pius's lifetime and an
updated and corrected version of the 1937
translation by Florence Alden Gragg.
