Title: Het Latijnse grafschrift van Uilenspiegel
Author(s): CLAES, Paul
Journal: Spiegel der Letteren
Volume: 60 Issue: 1-2 Date: 2018
This article provides a new interpretation of the Latin epitaph concluding the Antwerp chapbook Ulenspieghel. A critical assessment of earlier translations, combined with a careful philological analysis of the source text, allows the author to present an emended version and to demonstrate that the epitaph alludes to the three riddles of the prankster’s last will.
