Francesco was born on July 20 1304 in Arezzo in exile His family was exiled by the same people who exiled Dante not too long before they were exiled In 1320 Francesco began to study law in Bologna His father wanted him to be in law but Francesco despised lawyers because he didnt like the fact that they were dishonest although the logic of law appealed to him When his father died in 1326 Francesco stops studying law and turned to classics which he had studied very little of during his schooling He entered the service of the church along with his brother with all of their familys money gone the church supported them for the rest of his life On April 6 1327 Francesco met Laura for the first time Laura would come to be one of his biggest influences in writing Nobody knows if Laura really existed but shes expected to be Laura de Noves Francesco fell madly in love with her even though he most likely never even talked to her He ended up writing 366 poems about Laura 263 while she was alive and 103 after she died After her death Francesco said that she died on the same hour of the same day he met her only 21 years later In 1340 Francesco received two invitations both of them asking him to accept the crown as poet laureate one was from Rome and one was from Paris He accepted the invitation from Rome and he was crowned by a roman noble Francescos speech called on a rebirth of classical wisdom and poetry and he believed that the poet laureate was the symbol for poetic and literary immortality Francesco began to examine his faith after his brother became a monk and he wrote Secretum It was composed of three imaginary dialogues between Francesco and St Augustine The book was supposed to be a secret book and was intended for private meditation
