        Orrori e meraviglie nel teatro tragico tra Cinque e Seicento - pp. 247-263

        The essay esamins some religious italian tragedies – Crisanto by Hortensio Scammacca (1632), Il Pellegrino and Il Bartolomeo by Tommaso Aversa (1641) (1644) and La Reina di Scotia by Federico della Valle (1628) – written in the Age of Controriforma and Barocco, when tragic theatre, in particolar, offers to Christian propaganda a powerful instrument of moral repentance. Religious Tragedies stage the war between the Good and Evil and the final triumph of Good, through rhethorical strategies and a singular connection between immagins, words, music and theatrical machines. This kind of plays expresse the authentic meaning of Barocco religious tragedy.

        Il ‘mito’ di Assisi da Goethe a Fortini - pp. 264-280

        From the ancient world to Saint Francis, Assisi has always been an essential reference point for “pilgrims” of every time and place. A city with an irresistible human and spiritual charm, its visitors may be divided up into “mystics-poets” – the majority – and “travelersdescribers” of the manifold human, social, historical and spiritual reality. The author examines the impressions of the latter group, from Goethe to Taine, from Sabatier to Joergensen, including the writer from Assisi Arnaldo Fortini.

        Giovanni Boine: la disperazione di un mistico mancato - pp. 281-297

        This article examines the relationship of Giovanni Boine to mysticism, making its departure from the essays of Boine on St John of the Cross, and does so by means of a thematic and stylistic analysis of the Frantumi. Some of the concepts expressed by the Ligurian intellectual – especially those concerning the opposition between faith and reason, and concepts of immortality and of love – seem to anticipate the thought of the French philosopher Jacques Maritain.

        Dialogismo, simbolo e allegoria nei Dialoghi con Leucò di Cesare Pavese - pp. 298-324

        In this paper, I aim to define both dialogism and historical allegory in Cesare Pavese’s Dialoghi con Leucò (1947). Firstly, I showed how Pavese created a polyphonic-theatrical system, composed by existing actors in dialectic space. Secondly, I identified in historical allegory the rhetorical mean used by Pavese in order to actualize Greek mythology.

        Una fonte per José Ángel Valente traduttore di Montale - pp. 329- 349

        In April 1954, the poet José Ángel Valente contributed to the incipient reception of Montale in Spain, by publishing, in the «Índice de Artes y Letras», a translation of a widely known poem from the Ossi di seppia (Incontro), accompanied by an introduction to the Genoese poet. The present study identifies an anthology by Giacinto Spagnoletti, contemporary with Valente, as the edition that was surely present on the translator’s desk, and reveals, by means of careful textual collation, the important influence exerted by that source (with its glosses and its footnotes) not only in the introduction to Montale, but also in Valente’s translation

        Lo sguardo letterario tra retorica, scienza, filosofia - pp. 350-376

        This essay examines some features of aesthetical universe by using literary, philosophical and scientific texts, especially some narratives of J.L. Borges. My interpretation follows many directions: the myopic algorithm of Rosenstiehl, the symbol of W.S. Peirce, the physics of Prigogine which allows to tie literature to dissipative structures. In conclusion, it will be underlinedhowsome texts of Borges show a metaphorical schizophrenia between to like and to love (Barthes), comprehension/computationand creative passion.

        De Sanctis, l’arte e la scienza - pp. 377-388

        Gli studi di Francesco De Sanctis dell’ultimo ciclo della sua attività critica, dedicati all’Arte e la Scienza (1872-1883), portano a considerarlo un progressista moderato e attento lettore delle qualità stilistiche e delle forme linguistiche della letteratura del Naturalismo, facendo perno, in particolare, sui romanzi di Emile Zola. Questo saggio ne analizza i paradigmi e i risultati, anche rispetto all’assunzione, da parte del grande critico, delle suggestioni della teoria dell’ Evoluzionismo.

        «Può darsi che ne sia uscita una forma nuova…». Romanzo della storia e dramma dell’umanità ne L’incendio di Milano di Riccardo Bacchelli - pp. 389-408

        This essay explores the relationship between theater and novel in Riccardo Bacchelli’s work entitled L’incendio di Milano (1952). This work is an hybrid of both narrative prose and theatre, a dark story of pain, isolation and persecution during the Second World War and Italy’s occupation by the Nazis. It is relevant to see how the integration of the fiction, both theatrical and novelistic, with history actually works: it is a sophisticated reflection on what war does to every individual, how the relationships are changed and how the personality is forced to evolve. Work of fiction written by one of the most prominent historical novelists Italy has had in the XXth Century, L’incendio di Milano, historical novel with a relevant theater component, is an important part of Bacchelli’s narrative production, a not very popular work whose interaction with the historical discourse and the philosophy of history is paramount and absolutely worth analyzing.

        Corporale di Paolo Volponi - pp. 409-428

        This essay offers a reading of Corporale by Paolo Volponi, probablyhis most original novel, as well as the most challenging of all the literary production of the writer from Urbino. It analyzes the narrative structure and language of the novel considered overflowing, intrusive, magmatic through the postmodern theories by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, having a look at the poetic of erotism by Georges Bataille.
