RSVP Corpus: Foscolo Supplement, 2018

dataset
posted on 10.01.2019 by David King, Francesca Benatti
This supplementary corpus has been created to support a study into the contributions of Italian poet Ugo Foscolo to the Edinburgh Review and Quarterly Review in 1818-1819.
Foscolo broke with both reviews in 1820, allegedly because of the poor quality of the translations of his articles from Italian and French into English, executed by, among others, James Mackintosh, Francis Palgrave and Francis Jeffrey. Additionally, Foscolo objected to the cuts and interpolations the two journals operated, accusing them both of “tampering with articles”.
