Popis My paper intends to examine the affects that inform the allegorical system of Ugo Foscolo’s unfinished poem Inni alle Grazie. These affects can be also described as “significant gestures” (meaning the “physical translation of emotions” and a “tool of the heart”), as Foscolo himslf indicated in some of his letters to painter Francois Xavier Fabre and Salvatore Fabbrichesi who was the theatre company lead of Foscolo’s play La Ricciarda. This paper argues that, in his poem, Foscolo developed a new sensibility towards the individual’s emotions through the notion of grace and its visual manifestations. Consequently, I assert that Inni alle Grazie represent a shift in literature towards psychological introspection of feelings.
