Memorata Poetis

Main goal of the Memorata poetis project (forthcoming) is creating a search engine which is both lexical and multilingual, semantic and thematic, and selective according to ages, linguistic trends, regional and local differences, social and cultural origins and destinations.

Such a search engine will firstly be functional to the study of poetic inscriptions (carmina epigraphica) whatever their provenance, age, genre and type may be, with relation to the ‘high’ literary genres (lyric, elegiac, and so on) influencing those inscriptions or influenced by them (starting from epitaphs or self-epitaphs by archaic authors), and with relation to Greek and Latin, classical and post-classical, Arab, Christian, and medieval and even modern epigrams, starting from a stylistic level to all the philosophical, religious and widely ideological inclinations shown within the historic development and the linguistic evolution, with the transition into Vulgar Italian and its new ‘short’ poetic forms.
