In what disguise do today’s readers want to meet the Eufemiavisor?: Normalized texts and the aims of textual philology.
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
The Eufemiavisor have never been very popular in modern times, even though there is now a revival in interest of sorts. I presented a normalized version of Hærra Ivan in 1999. As far as I know, it attracted little attention and only one review, by Arend Quak, who was quite critical of the attempt. Yet I continue to believe that normalized Old Swedish texts are an important means of making the literature available to more users, especially literary historians. I will discuss aims for various kinds of normalization in my paper
