CENDARI Visiting Fellows.pngThe presentation aims to show the methodology and tools Dr. del Rio Riande have used for the digital edition and metrical encoding of a group of dialogue poems transcribed in a XVth century Spanish songbook -the Cancionero de Baena- as part of her work as a CENDARI Fellow at the GCDH.
Through the application and customization of an accurate TEI-encoding (mainly verse module) and the use of TextGrid Dr. del Rio Riande have analyzed the formal characteristics of these poems in order to establish the basic characteristics of verse structure in Spanish dialogue poetry and give account of the interaction between the poets, the possible imitations or contrafactures, and the common metrical and rhyming patterns.

The presentation will take place at the Heyne-Haus, Papendiek 16, 37073 Göttingen, Semniar room 1.
