Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter gives an overview of concepts covered in the book. The book addresses one of the most dynamic and yet potentially challenging aspects of Petrarch research and interpretation: the essential interplay between Petrarch's texts and their material preparation and reception. The thesis that Petrarch's poetics constrains his interpreters to come to grips with the fundamentals of Petrarchan philology has a corollary, which is that we as critics should be responsible about labeling the verifiably philological and transparent regarding our position along the critical axis from philology to hermeneutics.

Keywords: hermeneutics; Petrarch; philology
