From Dante to Dante Gabriel Rossetti: Exercise in prosodic reading

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The first readers of both the Dantean translations and the original compositions by Rossetti, were amazed by his «strange accent» and his « mongrel English ». This essay proposes a prosodic analysis of a sonnet from The New Life in order to demonstrate how the iambic pentameter would receive, in Dante Gabriel’s performance, the modulations of a truly Dantesque endecasyllable.
