The present paper features three poems from Kosta Chetagurov’s Ossetian lyre (first published in 1899). The edition of the text, presented both according to the modern orthography and in a fac-simile reproduction of Kosta’s manuscript, is accompanied by a literally English gloss by the late Tamerlan Guriev as well as our non-poetic Italian translation, whose aim is simply to make these beautiful poems available to a larger audience. Our lexical and morpho-syntactic interlinear gloss is aligned under the Ossetic text, given in a rather broad phonological transcription.
