Lacrimosa

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Lacrimosa, asteroid 208 (the 208th asteroid to be discovered, on October 21, 1879), is approximately 48 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 4.9 years. Lacrimosa is Latin for “weeping.” The lacrimal glands are tear-secreting glands at the top of the eye. The location of this tiny planetoid by sign and house indicates a source of tears. Crying is not necessarily a negative experience; one can also have “tears of joy.” Lacrimosa generally shows where a person’s emotions are so deeply invested that the individual experiences extremes of happiness or sadness.

So mag die wortreiche Redeeinleitung in 11,1,4 (deam praepotentem lacrimoso vultu sic adprecabar) auf Apuleius' archaisierenden Stil zuruckzufuhren sein.
Nowhere else will one find a reading of the Lacrimoso lamento, che fe Zan Salcizza, e Zan Capella, invitando tutti filosofi, poeti, e tutti i facchi delle vallade, a pianzer la morte di Zan Panza di Pegora, alias Simon Comico Geloso, hora hora posto in luce (Venezia, 1585) that posits "the additive nature of the poem itself" as evidence of its orality, while still acknowledging that the poem "was certainly not composed orally." Whatever one may think of the author's slant, it is still a most enlightening chapter, giving a credible context to a subculture of servants with attitude who became celebrities in their own right, and later indispensable foils to their masters in comedic performance situations.
Turning next to early zanni texts (1576-1588), he examines the Lacrimoso Lamento, which commemorates the achievements of Simone de Bologna, and other famous zanni, as the most prominent example of a large body of texts and an illustration of the coming together of oral performance traditions and "high" literature.
Por tanto, lo esencial es construir un discurso dramatico que aborde la critica de las costumbres a la vez que ofrezca un nuevo modelo de comportamiento social en los terminos que le son propios al modo comico: personajes que no sean de sangre real o de alta posicion social y poder, lenguaje coloquial en estilo mediano, identificacion del "vicio" social (lease, comportamiento inaceptable) y censura por medio de lo risible o, a partir de cierto momento, de lo sensible y lacrimoso.
Alvaro Pineda sintetiza en pagina y media todo un proceso interno de la obra (lo cual de suyo ya es casi imposible), y se refiere al libro de manera poco solemne al decir: "se extiende innecesariamente en peripecias y detalles sin trascendencia, que dan un tono lacrimoso y un estilo redundante" (Pineda, 1999: 465), con lo cual se hace evidente una lectura superficial, sin agudeza en el oido, y un comentario netamente subjetivo que carece de todo tipo de validez, tanto estetica como academica.
suggerisce di leggere a scuola entrambi i testi, dato che tra essi vi sono analogie testuali alle quali e stata data poca importanza, ad esempio le espressioni che sottolineano la gestualita del personaggio (laetus et alacer exsurgo, lacrimoso vultu sic apprecabar).
