by Francesco Petrarca

From Introduction: Through the mastery of language in his Italian poetry, Petrarch not only made an everlasting contribution to world literature, but also rendered a very specific service to the development and molding of the language of his own country. Petrarch was among the the first to tear this veil (faith, illusion and childish prepossession) away by striving for a full understanding of his own individuality through continuous self-analysis and self-portrayal, as illustrated by the Letter to Posterity or the Secretum or, above all, the Rime. In this sense Petrarch may be called the founder of modern humanism.
