This book uniquely blends poetry, drama, and scholarship into a verse play that interprets the Italian Renaissance in the light of scholarship. It is historical poetic drama in the tradition of T.S. Eliot and Christopher Fry. Lorenzo de'Medici is an original verse play about the original Bonfire of the Vanities, the struggle between Lorenzo de'Medici (The Magnificent) and Savonarola in fifteenth-century Italy. The events are historically true, and the rhymed songs are the author's translations of Renaissance Latin and Italian lyrics.
