Abstract: This study is a slightly revised version of Pieper's PhD dissertation as it was presented at Bonn University in 2007. The author discusses Cristoforo Landino's (1424-1498) 'Xandra', the first neolatin elegy collection, as a milestone in the development of Quattrocento Latin poetry. Landino effectively combined the tradition of the Augustan love elegy with panegyrics of his hometown Florence and its ruling family, the Medici, and by means of this fashioning of Florence and his own self-fashioning, Landino "negotiated" his own career as a poet and as a professor at the Studio Fiorentino.
