Painting tends to convey moral meanings through symbols, while literature represents abstract concepts through metaphors and corporeal images. The volumes revolve around this central theme and are divided into sections: the Middle Age and Dante’s «visible speech» (mutual attraction between art and poetry), the 16th-century triumph of painting as «figurative word», the Ferrara of Ariosto and Tasso, 18th-century Enlightenment and Neoclassicism, the extraordinary fusion of imagination and literature in 20th-century imagery.
