The Edition of the Versified Letters of Romanian Soldiers between Philology and Folklore: Method Notes

This paper aims to present the case, in many ways surprising, of the versified letters of the Romanian peasant soldiers, built according to the metrics, style and structures of traditional oral poetry.
