We present here a new Italian translation of Edgar Wind’s scathing the important review of Ernst H. Gombrich, Aby Warburg: An Intellectual Biography, London 1970, published on 25 June 1971 in “The Times Literary Supplement”. An edition with notes and references, added from Wind’s papers, was published in the essay collection E. Wind, The Eloquence of Symbols: Studies in Humanist Art, ed. J.

The new translation aims to be more attentive, compared with the Adelphi edition, to delineating Warburg’s thought and studies, and the reference authors to whom Wind often refers both explicitly and implicitly. The original version of the review is also republished in the Appendix in order to allow a direct comparison with the English text, as is an apparatus of notes containing all Wind’s own references to Gombrich’s Intellectual Biography.

Abstract

We present here a new Italian translation of Edgar Wind’s scathing the important review of Ernst H. Gombrich, Aby Warburg: An Intellectual Biography, London 1970, published on 25 June 1971 in “The Times Literary Supplement”. An edition with notes and references, added from Wind’s papers, was published in the essay collection E. Wind, The Eloquence of Symbols: Studies in Humanist Art, ed. J. Anderson, Oxford 1983, 106-113. In Italian, the text was published on the occasion of the edition of the same anthological volume of Wind’s writings for Adelphi: L’eloquenza dei simboli, Milano 1992, It. trans. by E. Colli, 161-173. The new translation aims to be more attentive, compared with the Adelphi edition, to delineating Warburg’s thought and studies, and the reference authors to whom Wind often refers both explicitly and implicitly. The original version of the review is also republished in the Appendix in order to allow a direct comparison with the English text, as is an apparatus of notes containing all Wind’s own references to Gombrich’s Intellectual Biography.
