Course objectives
The course aims at providing students with a critical-philological approach to ancient texts. Sometimes we will work on unpublished texts or first-hand material (manuscripts or early prints).


It is strongly advised that students of this course should attend also the course of Filologia Italiana I / Textual Criticism I or study a good manual of Italian textual criticism (Alfredo Stussi, Pasquale Stoppelli, Paolo Chiesa, or Alberto Varvaro). Students must know the meaning of the following concepts: source, form, multiple forms, authorial variants, fortune, reception, transmission, tradition, critical edition



Since the course mostly consists in reading and explaining excerpts of literary works which are part of the exam, you are kindly invited to print them on paper.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student will be able to read texts of ancient Italian literature in original language; find secondary bibliography specialised in Italian literature; use the secondary bibliography to support a critical assessment of an Italian literary text; frame artistic texts in historical, social, cultural and artistic contexts; know their textual issues, as well as offering a theoretical framework for these texts; prepare a critical review of a literary work.
