'Altera Dido': the model of Ovid's Heroides in the poems of Veronica Franco and Gaspara Stampa

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article explores the negotiations of two Petrarchan female poets with the gendered poetics of their tradition, arguing that they both call upon the model of female-authored epistles in Ovid's 'Heroides' to validate their authorship and to mark out an alternative version of Petrarchism for use by a female author.
