    The problem with any translation of poetry is that the rhythm and rhyme cannot be conveyed. Stampa was acknowledged to be the greatest woman poet of the Renaissance and yet I cannot appreciate her brilliance because I do not know Italian. The side-by-side Italian/English translation hints at her gift, but without an inner ear to hear her, she comes off as a whining, pathetic, pessimistic sufferer of love.

    I wrestle to appreciate literary laments about a poor soul throwing his or her life away on someone who doesn't appreciate it, but Stampa makes the ordeal witty and musical. She fully deserves her reputation for brilliance.
