From the ‘fat’ of love to the ‘fat’ of poetry: a survey on the semantic implications of pinguedo from the classics to Provençal troubadours · The article aims to trace a thematic path on the theme of ‘fat’ and its implications from the Latin classics to the Provencal trouba- dours. Without necessarily assuming, at least in this phase of research, a direct frequenta- tion of the classics involved here by troubadours, we will therefore consider some occur- rences involving the semantic area of fat and the verb ‘to fatten up’, in ancient Provencal poetry. The aim is to emphasize the transformation (from corporeal to metaforical) of the adjective ‘pinguis’ and the verb ‘pinguesco’ from classical Latinity to Middle Ages.

Abstract

From the ‘fat’ of love to the ‘fat’ of poetry: a survey on the semantic implications of pinguedo from the classics to Provençal troubadours · The article aims to trace a thematic path on the theme of ‘fat’ and its implications from the Latin classics to the Provencal trouba- dours. Without necessarily assuming, at least in this phase of research, a direct frequenta- tion of the classics involved here by troubadours, we will therefore consider some occur- rences involving the semantic area of fat and the verb ‘to fatten up’, in ancient Provencal poetry. The aim is to emphasize the transformation (from corporeal to metaforical) of the adjective ‘pinguis’ and the verb ‘pinguesco’ from classical Latinity to Middle Ages.
