The Laurels Plains Rar __LINK__
Petrarch is a little more specific. He names his love, and of course, the people of his time knew exactly who she was. He calls her Laure, and his poetry abounds with symbolism of the laurel. A crown of laurels was (and still is) a mark of distinction. Petrarch believes she is his crown and his success. History (particularly the Abbé de Sade in his Mémoires sur la vie de François Pétrarque, 1764) records her as Laure de Noves, wife of Hugues de Sade. (In English, we call her Laura).
