Abstract

The theory of “political theology”, the mysticism of poetical inspiration and the myth of his universal competence endow the poet with a sacred authority which he will put to use for the sake of the res publica by castigating the enemies of the virtuous prince, of the city and of God. The variety of forms parallels the multiplicity of cultural, political, social and literary practices. Although a well-structured expression of ideas is not to be expected from poetry, it plays a significant role in the diffusion of political culture and in personal expression.
