Quandary Resolution 1752
dialectologist, epitome, fret, jactation
The sonnets of Guido Cavalcanti, perhaps called Tuscan in a jactation of a dialectologist, she set to music to resonate with her lute, with the softness of her voice painting a landscape “fashioned out in ways of gentleness”, with her almost fretting fingers pressing the strings against the fret, pressing all tones to rise in pitch, to reach the picks, an epitome of loftiness vibrating toward Orazio Gentileschi's young lutenist, placed on an easel in front of her, intently listening.
