As students become less and less familiar with the fundamental documents of Westrn culture this anthology provides a needed introduction and preliminary source book for that seminal period in which that tradition was shaped. There is sufficient material on Petrarch,Boccaccio,Macchiavelli,Castiglione, and Cellini to form some idea as to what they were about and it should encourage the interested reader to dig deeper into the sources. However, I was unpleasantly surprised to see nothing from Ariosto or Tasso in the collection. These were two of the most important and influentioal poets of our culture, and from a purely literary standpoint two of the worlds major artists. I realize that every anthology requires a screening process, but surely an additional 50 pages devoted to these two essential influential authors would have been appropriate.

This anthology is a well translated (for the lay reader) set of works, including Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Cellini, Machiavelli, Petrarch and other writers of the period. The translations and the notes will provide the reader with a brief introduction to Italian Renaissance literature and poetry. As noted by a couple other reviewers, there's probably a larger dose of Cellini than would be warranted, and some other authors reduced or eliminated completely -particularly the poets of the age.

All in all, an easy to approach book that gives the lay reader or survey student a glimpse into the foundations of modern Western thought.

The book was what I expected. It was necessary for a class I was taking at OSU. Glad I could find it as it was much cheaper at Amazon than at the school bookstore,

Already had some readings in this one and it was great! I love this book!

A really boring book. Bought it in great quality for school but was so boring
Dishadel
This is a very good book to introduce students to prominent Italian Renaissance authors and their works. These particular selections cover a broad range of literary works that promote readers to want to further read more from these writers. For example, one could discover an interest in Boccaccio's "The Decameron" through reading a couple of the stories and that person may then want to also read the full translation by Mark Musa. This book acquaints readers to works where they may have once had no previous familiarity, yet after discovery, people can gain a love of these influential Renaissance thinkers.
Chi
The editors have little to add, and little has been added indeed, beyond the included works.
Choices will be arbitrary in any such compilation and some could be called into question here.
For the reader who wants a particularly large dose of Benevenuto Cellini and is not bothered by the lack of any of Alberti's tracts on Art or Architecture, this volume is economical and well translated. Perhaps somewhat more flexibility in selections could have been made for my tastes.
The reader will certainly get a flavor for the period writings in a very economical and easily accessed format that is not easily found elsewhere.
