In the summer of 2006, Mr. Petrarca and his family were blessed by the birth of their first grandson. After much consideration, Mr. Petrarca composed this collection of sonnets as a way of offering his grandson the beginnings of a life-long set of moral values. You will enjoy his refreshing perspectives on how we all might be able to live together in a way that will add richness to our lives. He has chosen the sonnet art form of an early Renaissance poet Francesco Petrarca (1304-1374).
In Sonnets to my new Grandson Mr. Petrarca offers humanistic insights into our society's basic moral values such as worth, freedom, truth, duty, fellowship and authenticity. In the bookÕs Foreword, the author explains how, more than ever, we all must play an integral role in building that moral compass for our children and grandchildren. Throughout his composition, Mr. Petrarca references the works of several thought leaders on human values.
Sonnets to my new Grandson is a refreshing, yet thought provoking discussion about who we are and how we might better relate to each other. Share it with your children and grandchildren.
