THE PAGAN WORLD OF LAURA BATTIFERRA THROUGH EGLOGA TERZA

Anna Griva

Abstract


In this article the Third Eclogue (Egloga Terza) of the work of Laura Battiferra Il primo libro dell'opere toscane (1560) is examined. In this poem the Renaissance poet assimilates traditional elements of the genre of eclogue from the ancient times until Renaissance, through an original personal view of the world and the gods. More specifically, humans are involved directly with gods, Christian and paganistic contexts get a new meaning, while different spiritual traditions coexist within a poetic universe which reveals a new worldview.
