Titolo articolo: Cesare Segre, filologo critico

This essays provides a biographical sketch of Cesare Segre by underlining his crucial role in the fields of both philology and literary criticism. Any methodological approach proposed by Segre was based on textual research and combined textual scholarship, semiotics and literary criticism, even when it came to essays on contemporary culture. Indeed, the twentieth century and the ethical and political crisis of European culture became a constant element in Segre’s critical reflections from the Nineties onwards. As a result, philology is identified by him with man’s rationality, as it constitutes a specific form of communication and thus a social act.

Titolo articolo: La filologia alla prova del tempo: Cesare Segre e «Medioevo romanzo»

«Medioevo romanzo», the journal founded by Alberto Varvaro and Cesare Segre with other scholars in 1974, published several articles concerning the follow up of Segre’s three major critical editions (Bono Giamboni, Richart de Fournival and the “Chanson de Roland”). New manuscripts and/or new editions challenged Segre’s achievements, and his readiness to update them shows his commitment to a continuous renewal of philology.

Titolo articolo: Cervantes e i generi letterari: novella, tempo della narrazione, parodia in «Quijote» I 20

This article investigates a famous episode of the “Quixote” (I 20) by crossing two different research perspectives: the critical approach is inspired by two important sections of Cesare Segre’s last volume, “Opera critica” (2014). The comparison clarifies how Cervantes rewrote the literary source of the episode and how it was inserted into the narrative structure of the novel.

Titolo articolo: Cesare Segre e gli studi sul cronotopo letterario

Cesare Segre understood the importance of analyzing the chronotope of literary texts as since the publication in Italy of Michail Bakhtin’s essay, “Form of Time and the Chronotope in the Novel”. Subsequently, in applying Bakhtin’s precepts he distinguished himself thanks to the originality of the results he achieved. This contribution reconstructs the salient moments of the theoretical route followed by Segre in dealing with the topic and synthesizes its main critical acquisitions.

Titolo articolo: Su una «debatida cuestión» machadiana: «La tierra de Alvargonzález»

The chronological and textual relationship between the version in prose and the versification of “La tierra de Alvargonzález” by Antonio Machado had aroused a heated debate. The version in prose, very detailed and full of extensive autobiographical references, was published in January 1912 in the «Mundial Magazine», the Parisian magazine directed by Rubén Darío. The romance was published partially in «La Lectura» (April 1912) and shortly after (June 1912) was included, with a substantial extension, in the first edition of the “Campos de Castilla”. If all commentators agree that “Campos de Castilla” is an almost definitive point of arrival, with bitter discussions there was an attempt to prove that in the drafting phase the prose version should come from the first draft in verse. The analysis of little-known autographs definitely excludes such reckless hypothesis.
