Description

The paraphrase is copied after Torelli's death (1608). The work opens with an introduction which focuses on the main issues to be discussed in the paraphrase. Torelli turns sometimes to poetical examples from the Italian tradition in order to explain Aristotle's passages. The paraphrase has never been the object of a thorough study (for some references to such work cf. forthcoming proceedings of a conference devoted to Torelli held in Parma some years ago).
