Francesco Filelfo’s philosophical dialogue On Exile (ca. 1440) depicts a prominent group of Florentine noblemen and humanists, driven from their city by Cosimo de’ Medici, discussing the sufferings imposed by exile such as poverty and loss of reputation, and the best way to endure and even profit from them.

This volume contains the first complete edition of the Latin text and the first complete translation into any modern language.
