Literaruta caballeresca catalana: de los testimonios a la interpretación (un ensayo de crítica ecdótica)

José Manuel Lucía Megías

Resum


The Catalan chivalresque literature has been preserved in very few testimonies, most of them just excerpts. The same situation happens with other texts written or spread in other romance languages. This work affords a revision of the well-known data of this Hispanic chivalresque tradition from the perspective of the «ecdotic critic». This tool observes the texts not just as closed linguistic and significant objects but also from the material nature of their transmission ways, the data that can be extracted from the preserved codex or pages, as well as from some of their codicological characteristics that allow specifying, in some cases, their textual nature.
