.Le Macaronic genre created by the author himself is a burlesque poetry written not in Latin unpredictable, but in a low Latin, the Latin of slang dialect mixing of Mantua and Italian. The pseudonym of the author means Merlin cook, and macaronicorum are macaroni. This defrocked monk tells the story of Baldus and his nomadic adventures. The episode of the giant Sunder and deceitful Cingar, probably served as inspiration to François Rabelais, which is significantly based on the life of the less Folengo and his burlesque style, practicing the enumeration and excessive mockery widespread. Folengo died in 1544 Folengo's works is one of the most original of the Italian Renaissance literature creations. 1331446. Shelved Dupont Bookstore.
