- About this book
Accentuating the wealth of «negative» in the works of L.B. Alberti, this book insists on the figure of melancholy as a blazon ideal that summarizes the complexity of these abstruse aspects. The horizon of research broadens progressively: in fact studying the less peaceful aspects of Alberti’s texts means facing the problem of sources, interpreting Alberti’s specific use of literary material. The outcome of the enquiry shows a definite preference towards Christian sources, revealing the unexpected richness in Alberti’s literature.
