Abstract

This essay wants to study the cant I of Dante’s Inferno and in particular the episode of the three fairs in the light of Giovanni Pascoli’s analysis. Pascoli particularly highlighted the role of the «lupa» and the meaning of «rabbiosa fame». The reading of the passage, which made use of classical and medieval intertexts, had a long exegesis in the modern age, which contributed to widening this reading to other places and episodes of the poem, in which the narrative events took on a profound metapoetic sense, which was well understood by Pascoli himself, who made it a central point of reference in his idea of poetry.
