Boccaccio and the Invention of Musical Narrative

290 pagine, ISBN 9788883980848

Boccaccio perfected a literary genre called "musical narrative," copied by generations of authors from Bembo to Machiavelli, Tolkien to J.K. Rowling. This study provides a new way of experiencing lyrics, suggesting that readers heard music in the words, just as they appreciated music when viewing representations of music in narrative painting.
