Tasso’s annotations to two of the most important sixteenth century comments on Aristotle’s Poetics are published here. These annotations are of significant value in terms of the formation and deepening of Tasso's poetic thought. Each annotation is preceded by some extracts of the text it refers to; these texts are quoted from at length, so that the reader is not required to consult the texts separately, given that they lack a modern edition. The edition is accompanied by a comment which particularly compares the annotations to the corpus of Tasso’s works and constantly juxtaposes the other comments on the Poetica to other writings on poetry read and annotated by Tasso.
