Petrarch, the contemporary of Dante and Boccaccio, achieved fame in his own day as a scholar and founder of Renaissance humanism, but today he is chiefly remembered as a poet of love. His great cycle of sonnets addressed to the dazzling Laura occupied him for 40 years, forming an emotional and spiritual autobiography that moves between joy and despair. These poems established the themes and images of love poetry which was to spread throughout Renaissance Europe, influencing Sidney, Spenser and Shakespeare.
