Stato, problemi, applicazioni critiche della filologia dannunziana
The paper traces some general reflections on the problems, methods and perspectives of authorial philology applied to d’Annunzio’s work and in relation to some recent scientific contributions. Following Contini’s philological sensitivity, the d’Annunzio variant studies have dealt with a peculiar processing method that manifests itself almost instantly, in currenti calamo interventions. In critical editions, they are given an adequate representation through multilayered apparatuses and through the distinction between text prehistory and protohistory. The critical applications of these studies have since been the most attractive prospects for an investigation into the elaboration of d’Annunzio’s text.
