Papers delivered at 1988 conference at Harvard University’s Center for Literary and Cultural Studies. Philology is not just a grand etymological or lexicographical enterprise. It also involves restoring to works as much of their original life and nuances as we can manage. To read the written records of bygone civilizations correctly requires knowledge of cultural history in a broad sense: of folklore, legends, laws and customs. Philology also encompasses the forms in which texts express their messages and thus it includes stylistics, metrics and similar studies. (View image) WENDELL CLAUSEN ECKEHARD SIMON GREOGORY NAGY
