I think Niccacci's approach is basically sound. He distinguishes narrative and direct speech. I consider poetry to be a more formally structured and stylized form of direct speech. So if Niccacci is correct about the verbal syntax in direct speech in narrative, then we should be able to bring his knowledge of how the verb forms behave in direct speech in narrative right over into poetry and apply the principles to the verbal forms there. That's what I plan on doing to see how it turns out.
