Description

Beltrami's notes to Bulgarini discuss the notion of allegory referring to several sources. The main frame of Beltrami's account is Aristotelian: as stated in the preface letter, he is following the division of Aristotle's text (Poetics) below Maggi and Piccolomini's editions. The main argument presented by the author concerns Aristotle's choice not to deal with allegory in the Poetics. The text deserves a broader analysis, since it focuses on a quite controversial topic within the late Renaissance literary debates.
