    Bruno is a pretty interesting character for the Renaissance. He wrote this selection while in England (where he may have met Shakespeare) and it features a marvelous piece about an ass that tries to gain admission to a college. For all those interested in the original text, the Italian is there as well, and some pretty wry observations about the work by the editors (one of whom was a professor of Bill's).

    This was one of Bruno's best. You really have to work to follow some of his veiled critiques here, but it is worth the effort.

    pretty dense read if you don't have an understanding of the time period and early humanist philosophy
