Giacomo da Lentini

Giacomo da Lentini, also known as Jacopo Notaro, was an Italian poet of the 13th century. He was a senior poet of the Sicilian School and was a notary at the court of the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II. Giacomo is credited with the invention of the sonnet.

His is also the name I borrow to use for my pen name/pseudonym for any poem or quote I don’t want to claim as original to me in public display for whatever reason.

I readily admit this here for the sake of candid integrity, but also because few seem to venture here “behind the curtain of my blog,” as it were.

I hope you enjoy this little “secret” you now share with me.
