Petrarch’s Trionfi was enormously popular in Renaissance England, as Elizabethan literature, iconography, and pageantry attest. The form in which most Elizabethans read Petrarch’s allegorical poem was the mid-sixteenth century translation by Henry Parker, Lord Morley. In his edition of this translation, D. D. Carnicelli has fully annotated the text and has included a glossary. The examples of Renaissance depictions of the six triumphs described in Petrarch’s poem illustrate the impact of the Trionfi on European art of the period. His extensive Introduction provides a sketch of Lord Morley’s life and work and discusses the enormous influence of the Trionfi on English poetry.
