 10. FRANCESCO PETRARCAS LIV OCH VERK - FÖRSTA DELEN (Mikael Hörnqvist: Renässansen - mellan medeltid och ...
Petrarca (ursprungligen Petracchi, och på engelska ofta Petrarch) föddes i Arezzo som son till en florentinsk notarie.
I den tredje sonetten i Canzoniere, där Petrarca kommenterar sitt första mötet med Laura, skildrar han hur kärleken, genom ögonens förmedling, tränger in i hans hjärta, och hur han, obeväpnad som han är, villigt låter den ta honom i besittning.
Petrarca ägnade dock den kyrkliga karriären litet intresse, och det kyskhetslöfte han avgivit förhindrade inte att han 1343 blev far till en son, Giovanni, som sex år senare åtföljdes av en dotter, Francesca.

 9. FRANCESCO PETRARCA - EN INLEDNING (Mikael Hörnqvist: Renässansen - mellan medeltid och modernitet)
Petrarcas benäghenhet att ständigt redigera om sina texter medför att de är notoriskt svåra att datera.
Grovt sett kan Petrarcas författarskap indelas tre olika genrer eller kategorier.
Medan Petrarcas dikter - huvudsakligen bestående av sonetter - i princip uteslutande är skrivna på toskanskt folkmål, det moderna språk som Dante Alighieri generationen före använt i sin Gudomliga komedi, är hans humanistiska verk och det stora flertalet av hans egenhändigt sammanställda brev författade på antikiserande latin.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Francesco Petrarch
Francesco's earliest years were spent chiefly at Incisa in the ancestral district of the Valdarno.
Francesco disliked the career chosen for him, and devoted himself as much as possible to belles-lettres, thereby so incensing his father that, upon one occasion, the latter burned a number of his favourite ancient authors.
When Ser Petracco died in 1323, Francesco returned to Avignon and took minor orders, which permitted him to enjoy church benefices and only bound him to the daily reading of his Office.

 Francesco Petrarca - Biografia
Francesco aveva perduto il suo universo ed ora, angosciato, cercava il futuro della propria poesia, sospesa tra la volontà di un ritorno ad un rassicurante passato ed un’incerta prospettiva ventura.
Fu però a Valchiusa che nacque in Petrarca l’idea di raccogliere, con un criterio ordinatore e di ampliamento, le rime sparse, sottoposte fino agli ultimi anni di vita a un'intensa attività di edizione e di riorganizzazione, che testimonia il suo genuino interesse per la poesia in volgare.
Petrarca confessa così la volontà di completare gli studi eruditi, sebbene consapevole del loro limite e del suo desiderio di santità.

Francesco Petrarca or Petrarch (July 20, 1304 – July 19, 1374) was an Italian scholar, poet, and early humanist.
While this letter was an autobiographic reflection on his own life, later it has been falsely regarded as a report of an alpinistic expedition that actually existed.
Therefore, April 26th, 1336 is regarded as the "birthday of alpinism", and Petrarch (Petrarca alpinista) as the "father of alpinism".

 FRANCESCO PETRARCA und die Besteigung des MONT VENTOUX [www.BergNews.com]
April 1336 erreichte Francesco Petrarca aus Neugier, freiwillig und "lediglich aus Verlangen" zusammen mit seinem Bruder und zwei weiteren Begleitern den Gipfel des Mont Ventoux, des "windigen Berges".
Petrarca war damit gewiss einer der ersten repräsentativen Humanisten, die am Vorabend der Renaissance eine allgemeine menschliche Bildung vorantrieben und jenseits kirchlicher Autorität die Wurzeln dafür in der antiken Literatur, Kunst und Kultur sahen.
Petrarca steigt aus eigenem, freiwilligem Antrieb auf den Berg, allein aus Neugierde und dem Wunsch, eine andere, eine veränderte Perspektive einnehmen zu können.

Petrarch wrote his own letter to posterity and is available here or from the his writings menu it describes in detail his life and how he saw himself and is perhaps the best answer to who he was, but if you were to ask me, this is what I would say:
Francesco Petrarch was born shortly after 1300 in a time and place where very few could read or write and those that did considered it a chore where as Petrarch saw a blessing.
His passion to write his thoughts to paper was only overcome by the need to sleep or eat.

Accolto ovunque con onori e riconoscimenti, entra in contatto con varie nobili famiglie italiane (i Correggio di Parma negli anni Quaranta, i Visconti di Milano tra il 1353 e il 1361, i da Carrara di Padova nell'ultimo decennio della sua vita).

Petrarca, der mit seiner sinnenhaften Landschaftsrezeption den Übergang zu einer neuzeitliche Epoche der ästhetischen Erfahrung von Natur markiert, verwendet Natur und Naturdarstellungen in seinem Werk auf eine bis dahin unbekannte Art und Weise und schafft so eine bedeutsame Neuerung für die gesamte italienische Lyrik.
Die epochal neue ästhetische Erfahrung von Landschaft, die Petrarca bei der Besteigung des Berges Mont Ventoux begreift, die Funktion von Landschaft in den Canzoniere und der Begriff der sympathetischen Natur stehen, wie gezeigt werden soll, in einem engen Zusammenhang.
Schon während seiner Kindheit in Avignon und Carpentras hatte Petrarca den Mont Ventoux immer wieder vor Augen.

Mai avrebbe pensato che a renderlo amato da generazioni di scrittori e studiosi (e odiato da generazioni di studenti) sarebbero state le sue nugae le poesie “leggere” scritte sulla scia lunga della tormentata relazione con Laura e rielaborate per tutta la vita, forse come “terapia della parola”, automedicamento dell’anima.
