ARDISSIMO, Erminia. Meraviglia and knowledge in Italian literature from Tasso to Vico.Traduzido porSilvana Scarinci. Per musi [online]. 2011, n.24, pp. 7-20. ISSN 1517-7599. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-75992011000200002.
It is a commonplace to associate Baroque and meraviglia. After having placed Marino's verse, è del poeta il fin la meraviglia, my paper will discuss Tasso's poetic conceptions, which unite the marvelous and the verisimilar within the framework of religion (that is to say as a representation of the supernatural). Tasso's statement that all that is meaningful is true, is discussed here referring to love episodes in his poem, Jerusalem Delivered. The paper will deal with the theoretical writing of Francesco Patrizi, who in his Deca Ammirabili defines the poet as a creator of the marvelous, and it will also deal with the Cannocchiale Aristotelico by Emanuele Tesauro. The marvelous in the Seventeenth century also characterizes Galileo's writings, both as a feature of the nature of things and as a manifestation of the geniality of human beings in discovery and invention. The outcome of the paper is Vico's Scienza Nuova.
