Come leggere Virgilio (Tascabili. Saggi Vol. 380) (Italian by Luca Canali,Maria Pellegrini

By Luca Canali,Maria Pellegrini

"Scrivere in keeping with una collana intitolata Come leggere..., è una grave responsabilità, fa sentire una sorta di investitura didascalica che set off alle domande rivolte a se stessi: a chi devo insegnare a leggere l’autore prescelto – nel mio caso Virgilio – : studenti? lettori colti ma non esperti di letterature antiche? lettori generici? persone desiderose di dedicarsi a scritture più increase di quelle finora perseguite? insegnanti frettolosamente immessi in ruolo? Difficile rispondere. Comunque credo che, consistent with essere più o meno all’altezza di story responsabilità, sia opportuno non scrivere un saggio serioso, ma tentare un dialogo a distanza, quasi telepatico, chiarendo prima alcuni concetti essenziali – diciamo ’chiavi di lettura’? – dell’autore prescelto. E dunque Virgilio."
