This is a study of the role of female chacters and feminine imagery in Leopardi. It aims to place his views on women in context, examines thematic concerns, formal practices and ideological positioning of the time, and focuses on the impact of contemporary women writers such as Madame de Stael and Madame de Lambert on Leopardi's philosophical writings and literary theory. It brings together biographical, philosophical and literary aspects of Leopardi's works in relation to the notion, influence and depiction of women and feminine images.
