Italian term or phrase: la forma a botta
Contesto:

Ci sembra utile fornire a questo punto un riassunto delle singole egloghe, sia pure in una forma estremamente schematica, per evidenziare il piano dell’opera e i temi in essa trattati.

I - Si tratta di un dialogo fra due pastori, Titiro e Melibeo, sul loro diverso destino: Titiro va incontro ad una vita tranquilla dopo essere stato beneficato a Roma da un giovane divino, mentre il secondo, privato dei suoi campi, ha davanti a sé un futuro incerto.

II - È il lamento d’amore del pastore Coridone, innamorato del giovane Alessi.

III - Gara di poesia fra due pastori, secondo lo schema dei canti alternati (la forma a botta e risposta si dice anche "amebea").

Molte Grazie,

Barbara
