Petrarch's "The Ascent of Mount Ventoux"

In Francesco Petrarch’s essay, the Ascent of Mount Ventoux, he parallels the journey to the top of a large mountain in France with many aspects of life. This work, while relatively short, lends itself to a number of topics such as human struggle, personal goals, motivation behind our actions, and historical change.

Within this webpage you will find out about the many ideas set forth by Petrarch and how they apply to both historical instances and personal experiences.
