    • Abstract:
      This article analyses Ariosto’s innovation of the topos of the descriptio puellae—description of the woman according to a stereotyped set of attributes—in his Rime. In particular, I highlight the following points: the unusual presence of ‘canonic’ elements in descriptions of the nude form; the poet’s attention to the description of clothes and hairstyles; and the presence of an ‘interior canon’ regarding psychological and intellectual qualities. I investigate the role played by Ariosto’s literary culture in developing each of these aspects, particularly focusing on intertextual borrowings from Latin poetry and echoes of contemporary treatises on woman.
