Learning Objectives

They will have to be learned the theoretical and technical basics for the critical edition of a classic stage play, with particular attention to Plautine philology and and the aeschilean one. The student will get to know the history of the philological method (especially the method of Lachmann), will have to move in the reading of a critical apparatus and will have to learn the techniques and skills needed to prepare a critical edition of a literary text.

Program

1. In the first phase of the course, which will take place in the first half, it will trace the history of the establishment of Lachmann's method.

2.1 In the second phase of the course, which will be held in the second half, it will enter in the specific application of philological techniques, using as a working text the comedies of Plautus, but also of other ancient playwrights. The work will be structured into the following phases:

a) the history and problems of the manuscript tradition of the text of Plautus.

b) the philological work on the text of Plautus from humanism to date

c) the indirect tradition and the text fragments

d) how to make a critical edition of an ancient comedy (with examples from Asinaria, Mercator, Casina, Miles gloriosus and other plays)

e) the editorial practice and preparation of the critical apparatus

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

knowledge and ability to understand: Students should get to know the history of classical philology, its relationship with modern philology, as well as the techniques of critical edition of an ancient text, applicable to any type of text. Based on the study of the genesis of Lachmann's method, from which the main modern methodologies of critical approach to classical texts derive, students should be able to understand the characteristics of the various phases in which the ecdotic work is articulated today, being able to easily orient themselves in the field of the relative technical terminology.

applied knowledge and understanding: The student will have to use historical and methodological knowledge to easily recognize the different types of ecdotical work applied by scholars in critical editions of ancient authors, but also of modern authors. They will also have to acquire the ability to read without difficulty a critical apparatus of a Greek and/or Latin text, distinguishing the various types (positive, negative, mixed apparatus). The student must then be able to analyze and translate a Greek and/or Latin text, highlighting the main problems of textual, metrical and dramaturgical character. Finally, the student must have the ability to frame the history of a text over the centuries, both in terms of its critical examination and its reception.

Autonomy of judgment: The student must acquire the ability to judge the scientific reliability of a literary text in its editorial presentation, distinguishing popular editions from critical editions. They will also have to be able to evaluate the characteristics of language, style and socio-cultural functionality of a literary text, finalizing them to a conscious choice among the various ecdotical possibilities, in view of a professional use (in didactic, critical and editorial fields) of the text itself.

communication skills: The student will have to be able to read and use a critical edition, both of ancient authors and of modern and contemporary authors. They will have to orient themselves in the reading of philological and critical-literary essays. Finally, the student will have to be able to produce written synthesis texts on the main topics of the course. Moreover, the tools acquired by the student at the end of the course should allow him to face with the necessary technical skills the editing and the critical elaboration of a text, with that great attention to microtextual elements which are today essential for any kind of profession dealing with written texts. The assessment test then aims to verify whether the student knows how to correctly use the tools acquired in terms of adequate communication of the ideas developed and, above all, to consciously exercise their critical judgment on the proposed texts. In this way, the student is guided to autonomously elaborate a critical apparatus that brings into play his ability to observe the text with the guidance of a conscious and correct methodical binary.

ability to learn: The student should be able to file a scientific text by extracting the parts useful for study and research. They should be able to use the tools of analysis and interpretation of Latin and Greek texts: lexicons, vocabularies, grammars, concordances. They should be able to find useful texts to clarify and deepen the themes of work. Finally, the student should be able to propose questions and arguments for critical discussion related to the topics of the course, in order to trace a personal development of learning. The student will also have to acquire the ability to carry out bibliographic research aimed at the topics of the course both in the library and on the web, with particular attention to bibliographic search engines such as Google Scholar. Finally, the student will have to know how to use useful tools for ecdotic work, in particular manuscript reproductions and virtual databases dedicated to texts of classical antiquity.

KNOWLEDGE OF GREEK AND ASSESSMENT OF KNOWLEDGE OF LATIN - OTHER PREREQUISITES

Classical Literature students should have a good knowledge of Greek, rudiments of prosody and Greek and Latin metrics.

Students of Classical Literature and students of Modern Literature will have to know the general outlines of the history of Greek and Latin theater and have an adequate knowledge of Latin, guaranteed by a written test, specific for the Master's degree, compulsory, to be taken only once, preparatory to this and all other exams that require knowledge of Latin (i.e. in the SSD L-FIL-LET/04 and L-FIL-LET/05), which cannot be taken if the student fails the test. The test will consist of questions on morphology and syntax of the Latin language and in the translation of a passage taken from the work of an author of Latin literature, with the possibility of using the vocabulary. Detailed information will be available both on the Blended Learning platform 'Assessment of knowledge of Latin' and on the website of the Scuola di Lettere Arti Filosofia [https://www.uniurb.it/it/portale/distum.php?mist_id=17450&lang=IT&tipo=DISTUM&page=02905]. There will be a single test for each exam session and the dates for taking the test will be placed on the first useful day of the exam session and communicated on the School's website and on the Blended Learning platform (Moodle). The results of the test will be made available on the Blended Learning platform (Moodle). 

Attendance to the lessons is not compulsory, but it is strongly recommended, considering the specificity of the subject and its technical and applicative implications, treated mainly in seminars and exercises. Attending and non-attending students will be able to take the exam with this program within the extraordinary session of the a.y. 2021/2022; if they intend to take the exam afterwards, they will have to follow the program of the course established for the a.y. in which they will take the exam.
