The renaissance is the golden Age of the literature because of the development of the poetry with the songs and the sonnets.
The sonnet was a literary genre originated in Italy where was improved by Dante and above all by Petrarch. The main themes of the sonnets are: the love sought, the love satisfied and love for a woman who couldn’t love the poet. The woman was perfect both physically and morally. In this poetries there were a strong contrast between the desire of the woman and the unhappier caused by this unhappy love. These lyrics were characterized by a lot of paradoxes: the woman, beautiful but cruel, made the man suffering but the man didn’t want to stop suffering.
