Emeritus professor Anthony Mortimer, already known as translator of Petrarch, Michelangelo and the minor poems of Dante Alighieri, has just published a new verse translation of Guido Cavalcanti: Complete Poems (Richmond: Oneworld Classics, 2010). Cavalcanti, the friend and mentor of Dante, already has a strong profile in English literature thanks to translations by Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1861) and Ezra Pound (1932). They are, says Anthony Mortimer, hard but interesting acts to follow. Further details of this book can be found at the Oneworld Classics website:

Also appearing, Anthony Mortimer's new translation of Dante's *Vita Nuova*
