John Florio: The Life of an Italian in Shakespeare's England Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


John Florio is best known to the present day for his great translation of Montaigne's Essays.

To his contemporaries he was one of the most conspicuous figures of the literary and social cliques of the time.

By her reconstruction of Florio's life and character, Frances Yates' 1934 text throws light upon the vexed question of his relations with Shakespeare.
