..., Claudio ( 1574–1640 ). A significant figure in the history of Baroque poetry, he belonged to a dynasty of academics, and was himself a law professor at Bologna —a career interrupted only by two periods in Rome , when he unsuccessfully sought preferment under the popes most sympathetic to the new literary style of concettismo , Clement VII and Gregory XV . His literary fame is due principally to a twenty-year association with Giovanbattista Marino , whom he met in 1602 . He championed Marino's primacy particularly in two letters, included...

...by the example of Bologna's senior poet, Cesare Rinaldi , the Gelati quickly published two verse anthologies , Ricreazioni amorose ( 1590 ) and Rime ( 1597 ), which were early landmarks in the transition from Petrarchism to concettismo . Subsequently, led by Claudio Achillini and Ridolfo Campeggi , they championed the poetry of Marino . Their own later production included much religious verse and tended to the moderate Baroque style typified by another academician, Girolamo Preti . They published biographies of their leading members as ...

...that would assault the reader's senses [ see Baroque ; Concettismo ]. This meant being ready, in fact eager, to break literary rules and precepts. It also meant a rapacious and indiscriminate attitude towards literary imitation, ranging, as Marino expounded in a letter to Claudio Achillini , between translation, imitation, and bare-faced theft. In practice Marino and his followers mixed tradition and innovation. They worked with existing poetic forms, notably the sonnet , the sestina , the canzone , the madrigal , and less frequently the ottava rima ,...

...Di Pers ( 1599–1663 ). One of the most interesting of Baroque poets. He was educated at Bologna , where his teachers included Claudio Achillini . His studies were interrupted by the death of his father ( 1618 ) and his inheritance of the lordship of Pers, near Udine. Disappointed in his suit for Taddea di Colloredo (the ‘Nicea’ to whom much of his verse is addressed), he took vows as a Friar Knight of Malta, and fought the Turks in the Mediterranean, writing on the subject a long autobiographical verse narrative known as ‘A Iola’ after its addressee....

Their work involved the large-scale publishing of scientific results based on direct observation, including Galileo's work on the...

...has three basic meanings: the style of Giambattista Marino (Naples, 1569–1625 ), Italy’s major 17th-c. poet; his numerous It. followers ( poeti marinisti ), such as Claudio Achillini , Antonio Bruni , and Girolamo Preti ; and Marino’s limited influence on other Eur. writers. Marinism is usually used as a synonym for a poetic expression that hides a scarcity of meaning behind an excessive use of rhetorical devices. Marino’s poetics is founded on the concept of meraviglia (marvel) that, according to Emanuele Tesauro , author of Il cannocchiale...
