Boscán And il Cortegiano: The Historia De Leandro Y Hero

Otis H. Green


 It is well known that in this expansion of the 341 hexameters of Musaeus into the 2793 hendecasyllables of his own Historia de Leandro y Hero, Boscán made use not only of the Greek text or its Latin translation, but also of Ovid's epistles Leander Heroni and Hero Leandro, from which he took certain details; of Bernardo Tasso's Favola di Leandro ed Hero; and of Virgil's Georgics, from which he took the long episode of Aristaeus.
