The article investigates the significance of the references to classical epic poets (Virgil, Lucan, Statius, Ovid) in the chapters of the Convivio’s fourth treatise dedicated to the virtues and the four ages of  life. After an introductory section on the relationship between poetry and philosophy in the Convivio, and a concise analysis of Dante’s conception of nobility and virtues in relation to the ages of life, it will  be shown that the recourse to epic poetry is not merely ornamental, but essential to the construction of the argument. The poetic examples stir Dante’s conception in the direction of a social ethic and  support a moral philosophy attentive to the concrete context in which the virtues are realized and to the psychological conditions that determine our actions. The analysis of the category of amazement  (stupore) highlights the originality of Dante’s conception when compared to its sources.
