Summary Florence has been a magnet for writers and artists for centuries. From Chaucer, through Milton, Gray, Shelley, Landor, and the Brownings, to Wilde and Lawrence. Hobday examines the influence the area had on the writers, interspersed with intriguing snippets of them at play in a close-knit, expatriate world. No other foreign city has contributed so much to English poetry For many, Florence was where they chose to live, and to which they have given their hearts. A Golden Ring is a long-awaited tribute to the city and its beguiling, creative inhabitants.
