• Forgery of Literary texts, documents.

The book on “Fakes, Forgeries & Issues of Authenticity in Classical Literature” will attempt to explore the various aspects implied by the subject in the fields of literature, critical theory, aesthetics, history, political science and linguistics.
This volume aims to constitute an all-embracing outcome of recent research on the topics, thus reflecting the spirit of coherence and openness that characterizes our Research Project (Madrid and Oviedo) since its original formation.
