Giovanni Pontano (1426-1503), whose academic name was Gioviano, was the most important Latin poet of the fifteenth century as well as a leading statesman who served as prime minister to the Aragonese kings of Naples. His Dialogues are our best source for the humanist academy of Naples, which Pontano led for several decades. The first volume contains two earliest of Pontano's five dialogues and a freshly-edited Latin text of these dialogues and the first translation of them into English.
