Gaspara Stampa Selected Poems

Summary Gaspara Stampa Selected Poems

GASPARA STAMPA 1523 54 is considered the greatest woman poet of the Italian Renaissance and she is regarded by many as the greatest Italian woman poet of any age A highly skilled musician Stampa produced some of the most musical poetry in the Italian. I shall admit that I knew nothing of Gaspara Stampa I never heard her name or read a single one of her poems Then I came across mention of her in the first of Rainer Maria Rilke's first Duino Elegy so I looked her up It turns out that she is generally considered to be the greatest female poet of the Italian Renaissance So I decided to read some of her work and thankfully there is a fairly recently new translation of Selected Poems This one The translation and editing have been done by Laura Anna Stortoni and Mary Prentice Lillie I cannot vouch for their accuracy but this book has the original Italian so if you do speak Italian you can cross reference them The introduction calls these poems an 'amorous Calvary' and they are her response to her love for Collatino di Collalto Count of Collalto in all its manifold moods Collalto was apparently first pretty impressed with her attentions but eventually possible found her passionate intensity a little irksome They did have an affair for a while and rumour is that Gaspara Stampa was a courtesan and that rather than her poetry seems to have preoccupied scholars than it should It doesn't really matter what she was except that she was a poet She was first published in Italian in 1554 but very few of her poems have been translated into English I did wonder about this as I read them because they reminded me sometimes directly than others of Shakespeare's Sonnets but it seems that the chances of Shakespeare reading them and being influenced by them are long Most of the poems here are sonnets but there are eight madrigals two longer poems and a smattering of other forms But enough of the preamble what of the poetry Well it is good Sometimes exceptional The long poem #298 which is dedicated to a Nun and compares her life to the life of women in the 'real' world is a masterpiece Indeed the last few poems in the collection seem to have a direct religious turn than the earlier ones although being Renaissance Italy religion is not far behind These poems cover jealousy longing pain hope joy and all the parts of love that one can feel and today we have naming of parts #88 features the linesYou made me drink of you dark river LetheWhich pleases me the the it harms meWhich is pleasingly gothic and might sneak into a Sisters of Mercy song given the right motivation #22 is delightfully snarkyAnd maybe pity for my pain will move youWhere now you walk about in scornful pride'Since you don't see it deeply as I feel itNone of the poems has a title btw they're all just numbered My bookmark contains a list of 22 poems I particular liked above all the others but to be honest this is a fine collection of love poetry from a woman's point of viewYou come to the conclusion that whatever the gap between Count Collalto and Gaspara Stampa in social terms there was a bigger gap between them And that it was Collalto who was punching above his weight If you've read Shakespeare's Sonnets you should really give these a read The best of them are the eual of anything Shakespeare wroteRilke's uoteHave you imaginedGaspara Stampa intensely enough so that any girldeserted by her beloved might be inspiredby that fierce example of soaring objectless loveand might say to herself Perhaps I can be like her
