Giacomo’s dissertation focuses on the relationship between epic poetry and cosmology in Early Modern European Literature. In particular, the way chaos and abyss are conceptualised and visualised in the work of Dante, Tasso, Camões and Milton. The main research’s aim is to map continuity and differences in the topic among major Early Modern European literary works in order to think broadly about their connection with Classical antiquity and more contemporary authors.
