  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Celio Malspini; Thomas Middleton; Source Study; Early Modern Drama; Novella.

The principal aim of the article is to demonstrate the authorship of the "Duecento Novelle" II.84, 85 and secondly to reconstruct the connections between Malespini's novelle and "Women Beware Women". The analysis of the novelle in the context of the typical features of Malespini's work - chronicle and autobiography -, supported by archive records, shows the originality of the tales. Further, the connection with Middleton's play would be examined not only in relation to the aforesaid novelle, but also in relation to a potential new source, novella II.24.
