The two studies in this work were written in order to find out how the epic circle (Virgil, Homer, Horace, Ovid, Lucan and Dante) functioned in the Western literary tradition from Homer to Tasso. The first study seeks to show how an epic poet, in this case Divbo Franov Gunduli read Dante who in turn, had already read Virgil. The second and longer study of the two, was written to substantiate Contes claim that a literary work cannot exist outside this system (allegoresis).
