An edition and translation of Latin poetry written in response to the 1571 Battle of Lepanto. (24 months)

The project unites a specialist on Renaissance Spain (Wright) with two classics scholars (Spence and Lemons) to cast new light on the cultural impact of the Battle of Lepanto (October 7, 1571). Working closely together, they will prepare an annotated translation of Latin poetry that circulated immediately after this epochal naval battle in Italy, Spain, and Spanish America. Their bilingual, Latin-English edition is under contract with the I Tatti Renaissance Library of Harvard University Press. Part I of the volume will present a selection of the numerous Latin poems that circulated in Italy. Part II will feature two poets from Spanish realms who responded to the short Latin poems that appeared in Italy with Vergilian epics. None of these works is currently available in English translation or in a scholarly edition. A website will supplement the edition with images, maps, and links.
