Ramie Targoff's biography of Vittoria Colonna is a timely study of the first published female Italian poet, a close friend of Michelangelo. With a novelist's flair she brings this remarkable and influential woman to life, while also dissecting an entire culture. Ramie Targoff is professor of English and co-chair of Italian Studies at Brandeis University. Chaired by author Alexandra Harris.
