In the romance literature of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, the presence of university medical, contemporary and militant treatises can be found in the topics and the language of the poetry itself. This in-depth survey regarding the paradigmatic texts of Cavalcanti, Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio identifies their contributions' historical reasons and specific methods of influence, and reveals the scientific substrate of that which, even in literature, can be defined as a true physiology of passion in terms of science.
