Excerpt from Catherine Sforza The translator is too keenly alive to the charm of the original work not to realize that some of its elements must evaporate in the process of translation. Among these he accounts the contrast afforded by the modern colloquialisms of the Italian narrative to the archaic diction of the quotations by which it is enriched. By this perhaps unconscious artifice the voices of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries are made to speak in the ear of the nineteenth, so bridging over the gap, that the author may well claim to have made tangible the great dim phantom of that wonder of her age, of whom a modern critic has happily said - de son vivant die devint mythe. The numbers of the documents quoted in the course of this volume refer to an appendix, which, besides letters and other documents, includes Gli Experiuienti (some five hundred household and other recipes) of the Lady of Forli. - Caterina Sforza, Vol. III., di Pier Desiderio Pasoliui, Roma, Loescher.
