«Fan dunque guerra ancora i poeti?». Versi per la Guerra dei Sette anni

Duccio Tongiorgi


The essay offers a survey of the wide poetry-production, written in Italy during the second half of the 18th Century, and  having as main topic events and protagonists of Seven Year War. The first part of the article describes the common features of those compositions – often anonymous poems with clear propagandistic intents – and the way in which they circulated. The second part is focused on the more refined and restrained poems signed by well-known authors, who were invited and sometimes urged to write about the topic.


Guerra dei Sette anni; Poesia d’occasione; Giuseppe Parini; Carlo Goldoni; Pietro Metastasio
