In forty-four engrossing stanzas, we look on the preparations for the hunt, the antics of the participants, and on their skillful and, at times, ridiculously awkward actions. The poem gallops from the idyllic lines of the opening to the tense, agitated sequences of the center, and on to the convivial description of the closing. Rinaldina Russells introduction and list of characters illustrate the historical background of Lorenzos milieu, thus opening our vista on the cultural and political subtext of this delightful little work.
