Please note that the job is no longer active!
The research will consist in the philological-genetic and critical-interpretative study of the poetic papers held in the Fondo Andrea Zanzotto at the Centro di Ricerca sulla Tradizione Manoscritta di Autori Moderni e Contemporanei of the University of Pavia. The work will specifically focus on the materials concerning the so-called 'trilogy' (Galateo in bosco, Fosfeni, Idioma); and will entail the analytical examination of the genesis and elaboration of the three collections, the analysis of the variants and of the macrotexts, and preferably putting online the philological data on a specifically predisposed website.
