See! Boccace sits, unfolding on his knees

O all-enjoying and all-blending sage, The new-found roll of old Meonides ;*

muse! • Boccaccio claimed for himself the glory of having first introduced the works of Homer to his countrymen.

Still in thy garden let me watch their pranks, 1 I know few more striking or more interesting proofs of the And see in Dian's vest between the ranks Oferwhelming influence which the study of the Greek and Ro man classics exercised on the judgmente, feelings, and imagi- of the trim vines, some maid that half believes dations of the literati of Europe at the commencement of the The vestal fires, of which her lover grieves, restoration of literature, than the passage in the Filocopo of With that sly satyr peering through the leaves ! Boccaccio: where the gage instructor, Racheo, as soon as the young prince and the beautiful girl Biancafiore had learned their letters, sets them to study the Holy Book, Ovid's Art of nato a conoscer le lettere, fece legere il santo libro d' Ovvidio, Lede. Incomincid Racheo a mettere il suo officio in essecu- nel quale il sommo poeta mostra, come i santi fuochi di Venere Lione con intera sollecitudine. E loro, in breve tempo, inseg. si debbano ne freddi cuori accendere."
