Self-Exegesis at The Margins: Boccaccio's TESEIDA DI NOZZE D'EMILIA

I am seeking support to continue my research in Florence on Boccaccio's epic poem: TESEIDA DI NOZZE D'EMILIA. This material constitutes the first chapter of my book, which is a study of authorial commentaries written in Italy in the late Middle Ages and Renaissance periods. In this chapter, I examine Boccaccio's glosses in the poem and pay specific attention to philological issues concerning the commentary: Were Boccaccio's glosses retained, or were they suppressed by Florentine copyists? What was preserved and what disappeared in the Italian handwritten and early printed tradition? The consultation of manuscripts available in Florence is particularly relevant for my research, for the history of those glosses remains to be studied.
