Giovambattista Marino'sL'Adone is the last great epic poem of the Italian tradition, but its reception and even its meaning have always been very problematic. A marvelous example of baroque meraviglia, Marino's masterpiece is not as well-known as it deserves. It is a complex and intensely surprising text, the longest poem of the Italian tradition, but its place in the European canon is moot. This session welcomes all papers that aim at shedding new light on this masterpiece of European culture.
