- About this book
Besides offering a portrait of the cultural environment as a whole and providing a study of its most formal aspects, the volume follows each step in the evolution of an early XVII century poet as yet little explored: from the verses of the poetic Selva, built like a poetical wood, to the tragedy Conte Ugolino, which is a metaphor for the conspiracies against Farnese, to the epic poem Boemondo, dealing with the antecedents to liberated Jerusalem, where Sempronio states his position on the most burning issues of the contemporary debate.
