Abstract

[automatically translated] In the eighteenth century European literature the ancient tradition of pastoral poetry knows a strong recovery and is reinterpreted in the light of the interests of all modern: the cosmic order reflection and its system of forces opened by Newtonian research, the philosophical approach to the study natural and historical time period (both regulated by a cyclical trend), the spread of economic development models based on physiocratic theories. In this new perspective also we place the project of The Buccolica Giovanni Meli, poem composed of eclogues and idylls in Sicilian dialect, divided into four sections entitled to the seasons of the year and published between 1787 and 1814. Both in amplitude and in variety of meters and records this work reveals the happy author willingness to assimilate and recast originally some recent European examples (from Pope to Thomson, from Saint-Lambert to Gessner) and illustrious tradition ' Sicilian ', brought back proudly to Theocritus. Thus, under the sign of Pan, in meliani verses alternating lyrical segments where love is celebrated, lucrezianamente as "focu dilicatu" that "scurri and goes from one thing ', and triplets celebration of an agricultural world of connotations utopian, peaceful and hard-working, straight from justice and brotherhood. It's still, to claim the need to educate men as well as cultivated plants (tempering "pri the way of Mo choirs and the minds' the wild force of instinct) they approach the praises of the ancient sovereignty of Gelon of Syracuse, who employed the his strength not to shed blood but "to stabiliri in Tronu the raggiuni" or contemplation admired the countless species that inhabit the air, the waters and the land, until the '' hidden vii "of his depth, in which the nature preserves stones and precious metals confused "between drums, CRITA and Fangu". The volume - the second of the Opera Omnia of direct Meli Salvatore Zarcone - presents The Buccolica the new critical drafting Salvatore Zarcone with Italian translation and notes to the text of Michael Purpura, introduction and commentary by Francesca rings. who employed his strength not to shed blood but "to stabiliri in Tronu the raggiuni" or contemplation admired the countless species that inhabit the air, the waters and the land, until the '' hidden vii "of his depth, where nature preserves stones and precious metals confused "between drums, CRITA and Fangu".
