Cavalli Cavalcanti

Il medioevo ritrovato nella poesia di Giulia Martini

Keywords: intertextuality, Middle Ages, Lyric Self, metaliterature


Coppie minime by Giulia Martini is a poetic work rich in intertextual allusions to medieval literature, the themes and fragments of which find new coherence and a new function in the context of a metaliterary discourse on contemporary poetry. The paper explores this process by analysing key poems of Martini’s book. Namely, the theme of the death of the lyric Self links, within Coppie minime, Dante and Cavalcanti’s poetic discourse with that of Patrizia Cavalli.
