The powerful influence of Petrarch on the development of Renaissance vernacular poetry has long been recognized as one of the major factors in early modern cultural history; this work provides a far more comprehensive catalogue of the direct evidence for that influence in England than any yet available. It offers an itemized presentation, year by year, of printed citations, translations and allusions, with complete bibliographical information, quotations of the relevant passages and brief commentary.
