    This project stems from the curiosity aroused by the search Canis poem around the turn in my thesis on odors in Latin poetry of Giovanni Pascoli. The discovery of the low esteem in which literary criticism has taken the poem and the lack of specific studies on it, suggested a thorough analysis of this text and its genesis from the transcription of manuscripts. The initial stages of the project were devoted to the recognition of the paper containing the poem Pascoli and their photographic reproduction from the original kept at the Archive of House Castelvecchio Pascoli Barga, then moved on to reading (not always easy to decipher handwriting Pascoli) and transcription of the material, which allowed the reconstruction of a likely logical and chronological order of the cards and steps in the sequence of variations. For all stages of composition was done by an analytical comparison with the data of traditional Latin language, poetry and non-classical and, through the use of glossaries and indexes. This could highlight the substantial homogeneity of language Pascoli with the Latin tradition and, often, this survey has revealed relations with certain or probable "sources" of old, which revealed a "complicity" between the model and author of the novel new work. Therefore, this work aims to act as a first step, preliminary to a comment by Canis that today is completely missing, and that would complement and pastures alongside the analysis of "scientific" and Darwinist already under way by Patrick Paradisi Pecudes with his comment: As the scholar, in fact, Canis itself as the natural continuation of Pecudes because it "uses the same matrix Lucretius (the man at the dawn of civilization). And 'So this, the first, essential step for the exegesis and interpretation, which allows us to put the poem graze in organic framework of the entire literary production in Latin America and organic picture of the life of Pascoli, deserves, in fact, further study perhaps not an issue and assume that indirectly can be seen from reading the poem at issue here: the particular relationship that is already clear from reading the biography of Mary, between Pascoli (man from the 'soul Franciscan) and his dog , Gulì, which may have inspired the poet's will celebrate the origins of the animal by tying a double knot and the figure of "making it also the subject of epic-story home."
