Disjunktion und Diskrepanz
Disjunction and Discrepancy. 17th-century Italian and French Travesties of Virgil's Aeneid as Burlesque Transformations of Antiquity

Italienische und französische >Aeneis<-Travestien des 17. Jahrhunderts als burleske Antiketransformationen

This study deals with Italian and French travesties of the Aeneis published in the 17th century. These works imitate Virgil's authoritative work through contrast. Travesty as a special kind of disjunctive transformation of antiquity thereby reveals the conflict between provocative transgression and the persistence of traditional poetics in the Early Modern Age.
