Dr Herman Hermans

This thesis contains a translation of five of Petrarch’s Letters to Classical Authors (Seneca, Varro, Quintilian, Livy and Asinius Pollio), an introduction to each of these Letters, and commentary as well. The focus of the general introduction is how Petrarch uses the classical sources to discuss with his correspondents, what the subjects are he addresses and why.
