My thesis focuses on Giovanni Boccaccio’s Buccolicum carmen (c. 1362/63). The main objective is to demonstrate how Boccaccio draws on classical and post-classical models in order to build an allegorical and autofictional narrative within his eclogue book.

My general interests include: auto/biography and autofiction; intertextuality; literary genres; anachronisms; comparative literature; reception studies; literary career criticism; history of ideas.
