Back in the thirteen hundreds there lived a man named Petrarch who not only was strangely important he also had a sad life and climbed a mountain because of the corrupt papacy and he thought silence was fun. He also like poetry.
I ain't with this corruption time to climb mountains.
Not only did he like that mountain called Vaucluse ain't was seen as a proper nobel term so he probably used it.
The thing about his poetry is that some of it was love sonnets for a female named Laura a major love intrest for him. This took place in 1327 he was a young man then. She later died.
I liketh thee so I must write poetry for you.
I do not care.
But I'm married
He also wrote other works that were not only love poems. One of them was africa it was not based on the continet but instead a guy named Scipiro Africanus. People actualy liked it.
Hey you like the poem Africa I made.
Yeah man it was hot.
wrote many other famous poems all of them gaining attention and popularity.
Thank you for all these things
Hey your work is legendary Petrarch.
He still tried to become a Diplomat for the pope which he failed at but at least he became a regular Diplomat and a well known scholar he also had two kids of unknown motherhood but the church didn't let him marry.
He became a founder for humanism because he was focused on not only Laura and not getting a hint, he was also focused on self improvement.
