Virtual Theatres in Miniature Rooms: The Early Italian Dialogic Sonnets

Italica - Journal of the American Association of Teachers of Italian has recently published “Virtual Theatres in Miniature Rooms: The Early Italian Dialogic Sonnets” an article in which I highlight the performative aspects of the Medieval Italian sonnet. I view the structure of this genre as a space in which every choice made by the poet has very concrete consequences for the characters portrayed in the minuscule "black-box theatre" represented by the sonnet itself.
