Francesco Baldovini : 'Lamento di Cecco'

Mary Berry, Journal, 21 August 1807: 'Read a little of the "Lamento di Cecco," which, having often heard of, I had never seen before. It is a beautiful, simple, but not vulgar pastoral, in the Tuscan patois; but after the first three or four stanzas, not very difficult to understand. If it were, there are notes, which swell a poem of forty stanzas into a tolerable-sized quarto volume!'
