Die Wiederentdeckung der Bukolik.

Der Dichterwettstreit zwischen Dante Alighieri und Giovanni del Virgilio.

[The Rediscovery of Bucolic Literature. The Poetic Contest between Dante Alighieri and Giovanni del Virgilio.]
 
Astrid Eitel in her analysis highlights contemporary linguistic characteristics and peculiarities in the exchange of letters between Dante Alighieri and Giovanni del Virgilio. She also examines and interprets reminiscences to other Latin poets and proofs in the commentary that the authors both in terms of style and of content evoked or in some cases even quoted the works by Vergil and Ovid, especially the ,,Metamorphoses” by the latter and literally all works by the former. Giovanni del Virgilio and Dante use formulations and structures from ancient authors and ,,modernize” them by putting them into a new context; on the other hand, they aim at a continuity of bucolic motives and images, evoking the style by poets from late antiquity. Last but not least, Eitel’s work shows the transition from Medieval Latin to Vulgar Latin.
