ByMarianna IannacconeTien Nguyen

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This books aims to demonstrate that John Florio, famous translator, teacher and lexicographer, was also a wizard in poetry, involved in the production of sonnets. Like an acrobat of words, jumping from the Italian Petrarchan sonnet to the English iambic pentameter, this book unveils a new, extraordinary side of Florio's multifaceted personality, a hint that his career as tutor, linguist, and translator was only a fragment of a much intriguing, gifted genius the world needs to recognise.
