Incipit and Canon: A Reading on the Threshold of Italian Literary Masterworks


As a warm welcome for the delegates of the annual conference of the Canadian Society for Italian Studies, the Graduate Students' Association of Italian Studies at the University of Toronto (GSAIS) is delighted to present a special event. It will consist of a reading voyage through the masterpieces of Italian literature from the Middle Ages to the present with a focus on their beginnings. For its liminal value this textual area has always been granted the attention of generations of readers as well as of critics that analyzed it as the entrance to a work. Together, junior and senior scholars will enjoy reading such vital passages with the awareness of their powerful suggestions.

~
A reception to follow. Everyone is welcome and admission is free.
The reading will be given in Italian (English translations provided).

For further information, please contact the Department of Italian Studies at (416) 926-2345.
