Chapter Summary

There is little doubt that Petrarca's works in particular present often unique textual problems for scholars attempting to establish an edition. The poet's passion for minute revisions and reworkings of form and order have left us with fundamental textual uncertainties that affect not only the Fragmenta, but also the Triumphi, the Seniles, the Familiares, the unassembled rime disperse, and the Bucolicum carmen, to name the most glaring examples. In addition to offer rich investigations of Petrarchan textuality, every essay in this volume explores often with different methodologies the meaning and application of "textual cultures", a notion not designed to usurp editorial integrity ("all variants are equal") but to recognize that philological and editorial inquiries are not free of cultural and interpretative influence.

Keywords: Fragmenta; Petrarchan textual cultures
