Description

The lecture — related to the Accademia degli Alterati as well as the other pieces in the miscellaneous ms. Ricc. 2435 — deals with a defence of Dante's Commedia as a poema eroico: the author aims at demonstrating that the poem perfectly fits in with the aristotelian notions of epic poetry.
