Pontano was the most innovative, versatile Latin poet of Quattrocento Italy. His Two Books of Hendecasyllables , subtitled Baiae , are the elegant offspring of Pontano's leisure, written to celebrate love, good wine, friendship, nature, and all the pleasures of life to be found at the seaside resort of Baiae on the Bay of Naples.
