Spositione della poetica d'Aristotele

Title

Spositione della poetica d'Aristotele

Description

Orazio Marta's commentary on Aristotle's Poetics was published after the death of the author by Carlo Tramontano, who signs the dedication letter to the Count of Lemos. The work appeared within a collection of Marta's Rime et prose which includes poems and three short treatises respectively on comedy (unfinished and mainly based on Aristotle), on translation and on the comparison between Frances Petrarch and Giovanni Della Casa - whose poems, commented by Sertorio Quattromani, follow in the 1616 Neapolitan edition of Marta's works. The Spositione della poetica covers the three first main sections of the treatise below Lodovico Castelvetro's division (the third is actually commented till chapter 7 - i.e. particella settima). The commentary is conceived as a sort of reworking of Castelvetro's one, which is explicitly mentioned in the title.
