In his vernacular lyrical collection Rerum vulgarium fragmenta,
Francesco Petrarca depicts the innamoramento as the moment
when he definitely lost his freedom. For this reason, he begs
for mercy from the readers. While it is common for modern readers
to strongly distinguish between the role of emotions in Petrarch’s
vernacular and Latin works, the workshop will investigate
their mutual interdependence through Petrarch’s reception
in the 15th and 16th centuries and to what extent this was influenced
by Pietro Bembo’s oeuvre (both by the linguistic work
of the Prose della volgar lingua and by the emotional codification
in Gli Asolani). Particular attention will be dedicated to (1) the
representation of emotions and their role in the creation of cultural
communities (e. g. at courts, urban or academic); (2) the
evolution of Petrarch’s themes and topoi according to different
political and religious circumstances (such as the regional
the Italian Wars or the Counter-Reformation); (3) different
relationships among cultural communities (both as direct
e. g. via letters, and as a particular type of intertextuality).
This will not only make it possible to draw attention to the representation
of the emotions in Petrarch’s work and their function
in community-building, but also to shed new light on the history
of literature as a history of emotions.
