I sonetti di Lorenzo Moschi

26 Jan 2018

This article provides the complete critical edition of the known sonnets of the late fourteenth-century Florentine poet Lorenzo Moschi. The edition is based on the only two manuscripts available today, the ms. Riccardiano 1103 and the Florence National Library’s ms. Palatino 359. Considering that most of Moschi’s sonnets have been unpublished until now, this edition will allow us to acquire a better understanding of both the poet himself and the late fourteenth-century literary production in Italy. The profile of a poet of an eclectic culture emerges, one who employed a variety of borrowings from the previous lyrical tradition.
