This review is from: Life of Petrarch (Paperback)
A very comprehensive narration of his life, but unfortunately concentrated very little on his quest for the lost literature of antiquity which was such a huge factor in his life and achievements. I felt there was too much emphasis on trivia and peripheral events the details of which often left me confused. Nevertheless it is a worthy book.
