New Petrarch Translation and Manuscript Forthcoming

"On Simone Martini's Portrait of Laura," my translation of poem 77 of Petrarch's Rerum vulgarium fragmenta, will appear in the Winter 2018 issue of The Hudson Review.  This originally untitled, unnumbered sonnet opens my new collection of Petrarch translations, To Wrestle with the Angel: Petrarch's "Chapbook" of 1337, accepted for publication by Finishing Line Press of Georgetown, KY.  (FLP published my chapbook Notes to Sing in 2016.) As A Year of Mourning was inspired by the scholarship of Thomas Roche, To Wrestle with the Angel was inspired by the scholarship of Ernest Hatch Wilkins.
