Although Battista Guarini is primarily known as the author of a pastoral tragicomedy, he also collected his correspondence in the two-volume Lettere (1593-1596); among his nonfiction are Il segretario (1594; the secretary), a dialogue on the obligations of a secretary, and a political treatise, Trattato della politica libertà (1818; treatise on political freedom). He also collected his verse in a book entitled Rime (1598).
