Vabbé Donna de Paradiso fa commuovere. C'è poco da dire dai, è una grande poesia quella. Jacopone era uno che secondo me tirava mazzate. I libri dicono che faceva penitenze e tutto il resto ma statemi a sentire questo tirava cazzotti. La sua poesia, dico.
Le altre laudi, sinceramente, non me le ricordo a distanza di anni, quella sì. E' potente veramente, leggetela, ma tanto l'avete già letta.

Fra Jacopone da Todi, O.F.M. (ca. 1230 – 25 December 1306) was an Italian Franciscan friar from Umbria in the 13th century. He wrote several laudi (songs in praise of the Lord) in Italian. He was an early pioneer in Italian theatre, being one of the earliest scholars who dramatised Gospel subjects.

“O happy wound, full of delight,
He whom You wound
Is joyous indeed.”
