Chapter Summary

This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the book Dynamics of Neo-Latin and the Vernacular. The book offers a collection of studies that deal with the cultural exchange between Neo-Latin and the vernacular, and with the very cultural mobility that allowed for the successful development of Renaissance bilingual culture. It focuses on the understudied general poetic principles and properties of self-fashioning in a bilingual context rather than on the historical particularities of the phenomenon, which tend to take up most interest in scholarly contributions dealing with self-fashioning. In the conclusion, the chapter makes a first attempt at describing to what extent Neo-Latin and vernacular poetic repertoires had merged in the Dutch Golden Age, at least as exemplified in the concrete case of self-fashioning in occasional poetry published between 1635-1640.

Keywords: cultural exchange; cultural mobility; Dutch Golden Age; Neo-Latin; Renaissance bilingual culture; vernacular
