Reading suggestion: Petrarch

There are still a couple of hours to be spent this week so, here is a reading suggestion: Sonnets from Petrarch.
Francesco Petrarca (Petrarch in English) was an Italian poet born in 1304 admired for the quality of his sonnets.

On a non related subject, Petrarch is also known for his ascent of Mont Ventoux (Vaucluse, France) in 1336. The writer is considered by many as the father of mountaineering, or the activity that consist of climbing a mountain for the only purpose of reaching its summit and eventually enjoying the view.
