Petrarch and the Textual Origins of Interpretation
View Printable Version
 
This volume addresses one of the most far-reaching aspects of Petrarch research and interpretation: the essential interplay between Petrarch’s texts and their material preparation and reception. The essays examine various facets of the interaction between Petrarchan philology and hermeneutics, working from the premise that in Petrarch’s work philological issues are so authorially driven that we cannot in fact read or interpret him without understanding the relevant material and philological issues and reapplying them in our critical approach to his works. To read and interpret Petrarch we must come to grips with the fundamentals of Petrarchan philology and the history of its applications. This volume aims to show how a Petrarchan hermeneutics must be based on an understanding of Petrarchan philology.
