  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The result of research work for a PhD thesis defended in 2014 at the Sapienza University of Rome, the essay illustrates the nature and meaning of Filostrato's memory in Orlando Furioso. It is a pervasive and accurate memory, which invests the connotative zones of the literary genre (the proemium, the leave), the main love stories and the physiognomy of the narrating voice. In particular the paper analyzes the intertextuality between Orlando's story (the complaint and the nightmare, canto VIII; the madness, canto XXIII; the return to sanity, canto XXXIX) and Troilus's furor and jealousy (from IV to VIII part of the boccaccian work).
