    Summary of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili: The Hypnerotomachia Poliphili relates a dream within a dream. Poliphilo—Lover of all things—tries to sleep, tormented by the rebuff of his love, polia—all things. Finally at dawn Poliphilo falls asleep, and begins to dream his both idyllic and phantasmagoric dream. The action of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili takes place in a dream. The books opens on the hero, Poliphilo, who has spent a restless night because his beloved, Polia, has shunned him. At the break of day, he finally falls into a deep slumber and his "Hypnerotomachia," or, as it can be roughly translated, "struggle for love in a dream," begins.5/5(3).

    Woodcut illustration, Book One, signature z8 recto. In this illustration from the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, a literary work of the Renaissance that blends eroticism with antiquarianism, Poliphilus and his beloved Polia participate in the worship of a statue of Venus erected on the tomb of Adonis. Relief sculpture on the tomb depicts the Graces. Francesco Colonna's legendary "Hypnerotomachia Poliphili" is a book that captures the spirit of its time and place in a way few others do. Here, in the magical dream of the hero Poliphilus, we see classical antiquity through the eyes of the Italian renaissance, and it is not the view most students of the classics get today through Aristotle or Cicero - think instead of the Corpus Hermeticum /5(8).
