Description

Giovanni Boccaccio as Man and Author includes: Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio, the three founders of modern literature; Boccaccio's birth and doubt of legitimacy; fusion of mediFvalism and classicalism in Boccaccio's first work, Filocopo; friendship with Queen Joanna; the Decameron; and more. Poet, essayist, and literary historian, John Addington Symonds (1840-1893) delved into every field of the humanities, writing the celebrated Renaissance in Italy and publishing translations of the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini and the Sonnets of Michelangelo and Campanella; he wrote biographies of Shelley, Sidney, and Jonson, and collaborated with Havelock Ellis on a number of projects in sexology. He is remembered for his untiring efforts to loosen the restraints on homosexuals in England, and his Memoirs are the only diary of a Victorian homosexual of his stature.
