Learning outcomes

The course aims at introducing the various aspects and problems related to the analysis of vernacular texts and their transmission, illustrating the main philological criteria and elements of editorial technique; due attention will be paid to the complex relationship between philological reconstruction and interpretation of text, the choice of a copy-text and the different methods in granting linguistic credibility to a literary work reconstructed from non-autograph sources.
