Learning Objectives

The Summer School in Greek Metrics and Rhythmics intends to form a scientific introduction to the metric and rhythmic discipline, to the ancient musical culture, to the main problems linking metric to ecdotics and hermeneutics, with specific reference to the general principles of versification and to the history of the discipline, to the notions of ancient prosody, to the meters of recitation, to the lyric meters, to the structures of versification, to the transmission and critical tradition of the versified text, to the notions of ancient rhythmics and music. The survey on the compositional principles of the text will be put in dialogue with the analogous survey on the compositional principles in the iconography and in the history of ancient art.

The acquired competence, which arises from the practice of close reading and careful observation of the texts under study, in light of the ancient metric sources and the ancient tradition of lyrical texts, will contribute to the training of professionals able to study and understand, in a manner philologically founded, every type of poetic composition coming from ancient Greece. It will also allow the rigorous interpretation of the verses and the metrical arrangement of poetic texts. This specific skill can support both a more conscious teaching practice and a more specialized critical and editorial activity.
