MoreEugene OConnors superb translation of Antonio Panormitas Hermaphroditus brings to life this little known Renaissance writer s bawdy masterpiece. Modeled on the writings of the Roman poet Martial, Panormitas work was initially greeted with enthusiasm by humanist scholars upon publication in 1425 only to be reviled and censured as obscene by Christian apologists.

OConnors excellent introduction offers a wealth of historical and literary information on Panormitas often profane poetry, presented here in both English and the Latin original. This new translation will be a delight to classical, neo-Latin, and Renaissance scholars interested in tracing the development of the epigram from Latin to the vernacular, and to scholars of gender and gay studies seeking to understand the popular portrayal of women and sexual themes in the early Renaissance.
