Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Sacred and Borromean poetry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] The sacred Lombard production of the seventeenth century is aligned to the main poetic tendencies of the peninsula, presenting a panorama certainly not of the first order, albeit varied and heterogeneous. Until the late decades of the century, it made use of the stylistic language of Renaissance Petraschism and only later, when Tridentine diffidence towards more individual and non-conformist experiences diminished, was the formulation of a mystical rhetoric close to the expressions of Baroque poetry. The study places the works of some Lombard authors in the wider context: Paolo Emilio Barbarossa, Alessandro Lami, Luca Pastrovicchi, Cherubino Ferrari, Cesare Canobbio, Ennio Minuti, Giovanni Nicolò Boldoni, Pietro Paolo Caravaggio, Basilio Bertucci, Bernardino Baldi, Stefano Rossi, Giuseppe Girolamo Semenzi, Annibale Guasco.
