This chapter examines the influence of Italian poet Cino da Pistoia on Petrarch's Canzoniere. It traces the emergence of the distinct tone of Petrarchan lyric from the dolce stil novo through the important filter of Cino da Pistoia. It suggests that the consonances between Cino da Pistoia's lyrics and Petrarch's may explain that warm homage to Cino at his death in Canzoniere 92 where Petrarch deliberately copied Cino's manner.

Keywords:   Cino da Pistoia, Petrarch, Canzoniere, poetic influence, Italian poet
