On Dante's tracks: references of the Commedia in the afterlife of the Decameron

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The article aims to analyze Dante's references in Boccaccio's short stories wherein the ultramundane landscape allusions become more pervasive and central. Particularly, it refers to parodic rewriting, not as a grotesque reworking of the sources, but rather as an attempt to connect it with a lower or antithetic context. The article retraces the possible affinities and divergences with Dante's "Commedia" in the story of frate Puccio (III 4), Alibech (III 10), Ferondo (III 8), Tingoccio (VII 10) and Nastagio (V 8).
