La poètica de l’al·lusivitat en la imatge de la ‘donna’ i de les heroïnes tràgiques gregues a la Commedia del Dant i a l’Infern gòtic català (I)
MetadataShow full item record
A further comparative analysis of some allusions or episodes from the Divina Commedia, Dante’s masterpiece, let us reconsider the similarities and differences between literary models like Vergilius (Aeneid), Statius (Thebaid), Lucan (Pharsalia) or Ovid (Metamorphoses), and the allusion to Latin Descensus ad Inferos or Greek katabaseis and to Greek Heroes and Heroines, besides the Islamic eschatological elements of the culture of al-Andalus which were introduced to Europe, that Dante saw especially interesting and important. However, the aim of this paper, taking into account other Medieval works and iconography, is the comparison between some elements of Misogyny in Catalan medieval literature or some drawings of the Catalan Gothic Hell, which Dante perhaps didn’t know, but were popular at his time, and the mention of other Greek or Latin quotations from the Divina Commedia, especially when the poem describes Dante’s travels through Hell or mentions of some heroines of Greek drama.
