This project aims to study the rhythmical role of metric feet that form verses in the literary praxis of Latin poets, which has come from the tradition established by Greek ones. Recently, some philologists have sought new approaches to study the expressive role of rhythm. The works conducted by the groups led by Dr. Philippe Brunet at the University of Rouen and the University of Paris have shown that the understanding of metric feet, of "cola" and of verses has much to profit under "tonotopic" analysis. This research will consist in a bibliographical survey and also in investigating both the theoretical backgrounds and the praxis conducted by Brunet in his groups (both in Rouen and Paris) and its role in the study of poetic expressiveness of Latin poetry of the Augustan Age (for further information, please refer to the attached PROJECT).
