LA POESIA POLITICO-ENCOMIASTICA ARAGONESE. MODELLI, GENERI, TEMI [Tesi di dottorato]
Università degli Studi di Milano, 2014-03-14

The thesis aims to identify the salient and peculiar features of the Aragonese political poetry. First of all I have defined a corpus of texts that focuses on encomiastic themes and secondly I have provided an overview of the genres used, with particular attention to the most exploited narrative models (especially Petrarch’s Triumphs). Each chapter concetrates on a single author noting the elements of continuity and discontinuity with respect to the group of Aragonese poets. The Aragonese political poetry shows a strong link with the history: beyond the transfiguration and the hyperbolic exaltation, events and real characters are always easily recognizable and also the insistence on some symbols is always justified by a recall to a real fact. Aragonese Poetry has also a strong ethic nature, inheritance of political treatises of Maio and Pontanus. The political theme often assumes such an importance that determines the develop of the entire narrative and ideological work, replacing the erotic and penitential subjects. In various ways and in different forms Aragonese poets actively contribute to create a propaganda system made of symbols and allegories celebrating the ruling family and show a keen awareness of the political concepts they proposed in their works.
