  • Melancholy and the body in the eighteenth century: the example of Samuel
           Johnson

    • Authors: Robert DeMaria
      Pages: 11 - 18
      Abstract: Samuel Johnson (1709-1784), the great lexicographer and essayist, suffered from melancholy all his life. He believed that the disorder was congenital and that it afflicted his mind. To some degree, he saw the problem as arising in his abnormally large and partially disabled body. Locating the source of melancholy in his body, gave Johnson a way to deal with it, and it partially relieved him of the guilt and shame he felt concerning the disease. Johnson’s greatest fear concerning his condition was that it touched not only his mind but also his soul. In the form of scruples and spiritual torpor, melancholy weighed Johnson down and stimulated his fears of death and damnation. As a physical body, Johnson was perhaps deformed, but he was courageous. No physical danger frightened him, but he trembled for the life of his soul, and his melancholy, even if it was psycho-somatic (avant la lettre), was his greatest threat.

  • Bodily signs and disembodied narrative in «Pamela II»

    • Authors: Riccardo Capoferro
      Pages: 19 - 27
      Abstract: To a large extent, the detractors of Pamela criticized Richardson’s focus on the body. Pamela’s actions and narrative style appeared to be motivated by her desire, namely, by her passions, traditionally located in the body. In particular, Pamela’s bodily identity undermined her authority as an impartial eyewitness, suggested that she could not act as a disinterested narrator and that her voice was not creditable enough to acquire public relevance. Responding to his critics, in Pamela II Richardson set up a different narrative technique, and inscribed the body of the heroine with new, less problematic meanings. In Pamela II, there is a chronological gap between story and discourse. Moreover, in keeping with the codes and stereotypes of sensibility, Pamela is deeply moved by virtuous behaviour, her bodily reactions signalizing her moral value. Along with the new representation of the body goes the effacement of desire and, inevitably, the disintegration of plot. However, Richardson’s experimentation with narrative was not yet over. Reconciling disinterestedness and desire, in Clarissa he wove a polyphony of epistolary voices, enabling the disinterested assessment of an external interpreter.

  • «Like a Jerkin, and a Jerkin’s Lining»: Body, Mind, Sartorial
           Metaphorsrs, and Sexual Imagery in Sterne’s «Tristram Shandy»

    • Authors: Flavio Gregori
      Pages: 29 - 37
      Abstract: The article analyses the relationship between body, mind and soul in Laurence Sterne’s The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman (1759-1767). Starting from a famous “sartorial” metaphor, in the third book of the novel, according to which the body-mind relationship is akin to that of a jerkin and its lining, the article deals with the metaphors of the body as garments, which allude to human sexual sphere through puns and double-entendres. Notwithstanding the reference to Stoic doctrines contained in the above-mentioned metaphor and elsewhere in the novel, as for instance in the motto from Epictetus placed as an epigraph at its beginning, the relationship between the human being and his/her soul is often expressed in corporeal terms. This relationship, however, is communicated in ambiguous ways: both as the embodiment of the soul and as the spiritual elevation of the body. Perhaps this ambiguity is conquered by Sterne’s very writing that gives body and soul to man’s desires and needs.

  • A Journey Through the Nation’s Body: Tobias Smollett’s «The
           Expedition of Humphry Clinker»

    • Authors: Sara Sullam
      Pages: 39 - 49
      Abstract: In this essay, I will offer some brief considerations on how the bodily metaphor is particularly apt to a critical reading of Tobias Smollett’s The Expedition of Humphry Clinker on several and diverse levels. More specifically, I will focus (i) on the fluid generic status of the novel and on its position within the corpus of eighteenth-century British fiction; (ii) on the writing and reading of the nation’s body considered in its relationship with the structure of the novel; and (iii) on the city/country relationship as it emerges in the description of London, which, I suggest, can be read in parallel with George Cheyne’s considerations in The English Malady. In fact, as I will argue, for both his Scottishness and his practice of «medicine-by-post» (Wild 2006), Cheyne is a key figure to investigate several aspects of Humphry Clinker.

  • Meeting the “other” body: physical encountersrs in eighteenth-century
           women’s travel books

    • Authors: Lia Guerra
      Pages: 51 - 64
      Abstract: This paper addresses eighteenth-century women’s travel writing outside Europe from the perspective of their representation of the (foreign) body. The assumption is that while gazing at the others’ bodies, women were forcing themselves into a perception of their own bodies as clearly distinct from or as cognate to the foreign ones. The examples provided aim at showing how the representation of other bodies calls for an acknowledgment of domestic cultural issues, whether the debate is on ethical problems like slavery or over the social status of women, or simply over codified cultural symbols. Behn, Justice, Montagu, Vigor, Kindersley, Schaw, Craven, Falconbridge, Parker, Fay constitute the corpus of authors considered, all of them recording travels to far away unusual destinations.

  • Crisippo e le citazioni poetiche: il caso della «Medea»

    • Authors: Sofia Lombardi
      Pages: 67 - 83
      Abstract: L’articolo, dopo una breve introduzione sul rapporto tra gli Stoici e la poesia, approfondisce la figura di Crisippo e in particolar modo perché lo stoico si sia servito cospicuamente di testi poetici e di versi di autori differenti nelle sue trattazioni filosofiche. Tale problema verrà chiarito con l’esempio della citazione dei versi 1078-1079 della Medea di Euripide, citazione di cui Crisippo si serve per spiegare il concetto di ἀκρασία.

  • Una Rilettura di Polibio XXXI 25.5

    • Authors: Francesco Maria Ferrara
      Pages: 85 - 98
      Abstract: L’articolo si propone di ricostruire la fisionomia testuale di un luogo delle Storie di Polibio (II sec. a.C.) – XXXI 25.5 nell’edizione polibiana di Büttner-Wobst, p. 349 –, che è tramandato soltanto dagli Excerpta Constantiniana (X sec.): in una forma più breve dagli Excerpta de Virtutibus et Vitiis [n. 104], nella sezione degli estratti dal XXXI libro che raccoglie la lunga digressione su Scipione Emiliano (testimone: Tours, Bibl. munic., 980 C, del X sec., [P], noto e utilizzato dal XVII sec.); e in una forma più ampia dagli Excerpta de Sententiis [n. 137] (testimone: Città del Vaticano, BAV, gr. 73, del X sec., [M], palinsesto, riscoperto nel 1827, edito dal 1846). Per la conoscenza della pagina polibiana disponiamo anche di Ateneo (fine II sec. d.C.), che ne citò il contenuto nel vi libro dei Deipnosophistai (vi 274f-275a), e di due ulteriori estratti costantiniani, questa volta da libri non tramandati dell’opera dello storico Diodoro (I sec. a.C.), che attinse anche alle Storie di Polibio: Exc. de Sententiis n. 365 [Diod. xxxi fr. 36 Goukowsky] e n. 436 [Diod. xxxvii fr. 3 Goukowsky]. Attraverso una riflessione sull’affidabilità dei testi di Ateneo e Diodoro in rapporto con quello delle Storie, e un costante confronto con tutta l’opera polibiana volto ad indagare lingua e stile dell’autore, l’articolo giunge a una ricostruzione in parte diversa da quella del Büttner-Wobst, il cui testo riproducono tutte le edizioni moderne.

  • Il linguaggio del corpo: tra oratore e attore

    • Authors: Gianenrico Manzoni
      Pages: 99 - 112
      Abstract: Fedeltà alla tradizione ciceroniana, ma, insieme, inserimento di qualche parziale, occasionale differenza: questa la posizione di Quintiliano sulle caratteristiche dell’actio, termine che egli usa senza differenze da pronuntiatio, seguendo Cicerone ma distinguendosi dagli autori precedenti al modello di Arpino. Ma in entrambi gli autori emerge la volontà di distinguere l’actio dell’attore da quella dell’oratore: con netta preferenza per la figura professionale di quest’ultimo. L’attore, che soggiace a una condanna morale perché della verità è solo imitatore, mira a un’alterazione pesante della realtà, mentre l’oratore tende a un’imitazione leggera: è imitatore della vita vera. L’oratore infatti non deve imitare gli attori e la loro effeminatezza, ma deve tendere a un’actio virile, appresa dalla palestra o dalla piazza d’armi dei soldati. Sono presi in esame per questo confronto, oltre al trattato di Quintiliano, soprattutto i passi del De oratore ciceroniano, e occasionalmente delle altre opere di retorica, dove l’actio viene definita, sul modello di Demostene, come la prima, ma contemporaneamente anche come la seconda e la terza dote dell’oratore.

  • Cicerone nella Controriforma. Girolamo Ragazzoni umanista e vescovo

    • Authors: Fabio Gatti
      Pages: 113 - 130
      Abstract: Nella storia della fortuna di Cicerone, l’età della Controriforma è un periodo non specificamente indagato, benché la presenza dell’oratore sia fondamentale nella formazione di molti protagonisti del rinnovamento cattolico e poi nei nuovi sistemi educativi elaborati per formare un clero più qualificato. L’articolo intende mettere in luce il ruolo centrale assunto da Cicerone in tale delicata fase storica, concentrandosi in particolare sulla figura esemplare di Girolamo Ragazzoni (1537 ca-1592), commentatore delle Epistulae ad Familiares e volgarizzatore delle Filippiche. Ragazzoni, da giovane umanista in stretto contatto con Paolo Manuzio e Carlo Sigonio, parteciperà al Concilio, tenendone l’orazione conclusiva, per poi diventare nel 1577 vescovo di Bergamo: lì, operando in collaborazione con Carlo Borromeo, si rivelerà uno dei più solerti esecutori dell’opera di riforma interna alla Chiesa, in particolare nel settore pedagogico e scolastico.

  • Proteo tra esegesi razionalistiche, paradossografia e credulità popolare.
           A proposito di Luc. «DMar.» 4

    • Authors: Lucia Floridi
      Pages: 131 - 144
      Abstract: L’articolo intende illustrare le modalità con cui si realizza, in Luc. DMar. 4, Proteo e Menelao, il confronto con il modello epico, Od. 4.351-569. Si cercherà di dimostrare come l’ironia della riscrittura di Luciano si sostanzi non solo della discrasia rispetto al modello, ma anche di un gioco deliberato con gli interessi di certa critica, che “sezionava” i testi poetici per ricavarne significati allegorici e interpretazioni razionalistiche. L’insistenza di Menelao, nel dialogo di Luciano, sul carattere “incredibile” della metamorfosi di Proteo e la sua ostinazione a non ritenerla possibile a dispetto dell’evidenza autoptica saranno interpretate come il possibile riflesso parodico delle esegesi razionalistiche di cui il passo odissiaco era stato fatto oggetto. Si noterà poi come il ricorso al vocabolario del “meraviglioso” accosti il dialogo al genere dei mirabilia, apparentandolo ad altri scritti di Luciano in cui il lessico e le immagini della paradossografia sono utilizzati con una notevole varietà di scopi – non ultima la presa di distanza dalla ciarlataneria e dalle false credenze. In tale contesto si suggerirà che Proteo – esplicitamente accusato di γοητεία da Menelao – possa essere accostato alle tante figure di ciarlatani che in età imperiale irretivano le folle per interesse personale e per lucro, e in particolare al filosofo Peregrino, che proprio del soprannome di Proteo amava fregiarsi.

  • Per la biografia (e la geografia) di Francesco Melzi

    • Authors: Rossana Sacchi
      Pages: 145 - 161
      Abstract: La fama di Francesco Melzi, che ha affiancato Leonardo a Milano, a Roma e in Francia e ne ha ereditato le carte e i disegni ricavandone il Libro di Pittura, è indiscussa. Tuttavia la storia inizia solo ora a chiarirsi: inediti documenti provano che Francesco risiedette per lunghi periodi dell’anno non a Vaprio d’Adda, come avevano tramandato alcune fonti tarde, bensì presso la canonica di San Giovanni Evangelista di Canonica di Pontirolo, dove morì nel 1567. Questa data costituisce una nuova acquisizione, così come il suo testamento del 1565, qui pubblicato per la prima volta.

  • Gli esordi poetici di Giovanni Giudici

    • Authors: Laura Neri
      Pages: 163 - 176
      Abstract: Il saggio prende in considerazione la produzione in versi di Giovanni Giudici negli anni cinquanta, cioè precedente alla più nota Vita in versi che ha rappresentato la cosiddetta svolta nel suo percorso poetico. Le prime tre brevi raccolte, quasi mai considerate da parte della critica, rivelano in realtà un notevole interesse sia dal punto di vista della formazione del poeta sia per il confronto con i dibattiti teorici e la critica militante di questo decennio.
