Abstract:

Curial e Güelfa és una novel·la anònima del segle XV escrita en llengua
catalana, desconeguda fins al segle XIX i publicada por primera vegada el
1901. Es tracta d’una obra singular, a cavall entre l’Edat Mitjana i el
Renaixement, en què es conjuminen magistralment els components cavalleresc i
sentimental i la influència de l’Humanisme. Encara que el protagonista
realitza les seues gestes per Itàlia, Alemanya, Hongria, França, Anglaterra,
Grècia, Terra Santa, Egipte i Tunis, el seu ambient és bàsicament italià. El
seu anonimat i la seva llengua han desorientat els lingüistes i els
historiadors de la literatura que s’hi han acostat. La novel·la, ara
accessible en anglès, espanyol, francès, portugués i italià — en traduccions
promogudes per IVITRA, basades en l’edició filològica del prof. Antoni
Ferrando (2007) —, atrau cada vegada més l’atenció dels estudiosos, no sols
per la seva redacció exquisida i la seva ben traçada estructura, sinó pel seu
ric rerefons cultural europeu. El present volum d’estudis intenta respondre a
gran part d’aquests interrogants, amb quaranta aportacions molt rellevants
tant en l’aspecte lingüístic com en el cultural.

Curial e Güelfa is a 15th century anonymous romance written in Catalan,
unknown until the 19th century and first published in 1901. It is a singular
work, halfway between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, in which the
features of chivalry and sentimentalism and a touch of Humanism are
brilliantly combined. Although the main character performs his heroic deeds in
Italy, Germany, Hungary, France, England, Greece, the Holy Land, Egypt and
Tunisia, the atmosphere is essentially Italian. Its anonymity and its language
have always disconcerted the linguists and literary historians who have
approached it. The novel, now available in English, Spanish, French,
Portuguese and Italian — in translations sponsored by IVITRA, based upon Prof.
Antoni Ferrando’s philological edition (2007) — and in German, is increasingly
attracting the attention of scholars, not only because of its delighting style
and its wonderfully traced structure, but also because of its rich cultural
European background. This volume of studies tries to solve most of these
questions with forty outstanding contributions, all of them very important
both from a linguistic and a cultural point of view.
