        La “lingua commune” di Giovanni Tarcagnota: toscanizzazione, autoctonia e antibembismo inconsapevole - pp. 453-469

        The language of Giovanni Tarcagnota (1508-1566), one of the most important antiquarians of the xvith century, is characterized by several influences: Tuscan, Neapolitan and his mother-tongue. This interesting condition of his writings shows that his tongue and cultural heritages form a literary language, that he defined “commune”, to founed on history technical language not derived from poetry and unawere opposition to Bembo theories.


        GUGLIELMO APRILE Nell’«ondoso regno» di amore. Affabulazione retorica e sensuale nelle Rime marittime di Giovan Battista Marino - pp. 470-494

        Remarkable work in the literary scenery of the beginning of the XVII century, Rime marittime represent a characteristic trial of Giovan Battista Marino’s poetic activity. Original is the intertwining of the passionate theme, joined to the unhappy love of fisherman Fileno for the nymph Lilla, and the lyrical correspondences of the natural universe. For its elaborate and rhetorically sophisticated language, rich in sumptuous images and precious sounds, the collection gives rise to many interpretations of the poetic of the author, whom would have found full expression in a few years in the drafting of Adone.


        La maschera e il corpo. Emblemi del moderno nella novellistica verghiana - pp. 494-512

        Carefully examining the theme of the carnival and of the mask in Verga’s narrative, the critical essay intends to bring out the alienated and upset nature that the urban modernity takes on in the artistic representation of the writer, the instincts of death and self-destruction that pass through it at his sight. The analysis of the novel Libertŕ, which the essay proposes an original interpretation, is essential for this purpose.

        Un caso di apparente affinitŕ: Libro di Ipazia e Murder in the cathedral a confronto. - pp. 513-525

        Rosanna Pozzi Un caso di apparente affinitŕ: Libro di Ipazia e Murder in the cathedral a confronto. In the following essay the author compares the Mario Luzi’s drama Ipatia with Murder in the cathedral of T. S. Eliot and she underlines at first elements of surface affinity and subsequently the profound differences emerging from the texts, for example, about the conception of history and in the wrong man. The role of the female is very different too: it’s negative in the American author, always positive in the Italian poet.

        Il giardino dei Finzi-Contini: le cuciture del tessuto narrativo - pp. 526-546

        The underlying narrative techniques of the novel Il giardino dei Finzi Contini are revealed through close analysis of the text. The wide variety of these techniques include different forms of dilation, especially that of temporal digression. Taken together, they reflect the disturbances in the world and in historical time represented in the novel. The study of all these techniques is carried out in the light of other works by Bassani and the considerable volume of critical essays on him that have been published in recent years.


        Giuseppe Bonaviri e la magia della fiaba: al di lŕ della realtŕ, al di qua della fantasia - pp. 547-579

        The essay aims at analyzing in depth the fantastic dimension in Giuseppe Bonaviri’s artistic itinerary, pointing out its themes and peculiarities and outlining a picture of consonances and differences with other authors – from Popp to Calvino, from Andersen to Capuana, Rodari, Lodi, up to Walt Disney and his stories. The dialectic relationship with the fairy-tale tradition – both North-Western and Sicilian-Mediterranean – is laid bare. A window onto the communicative dynamics that take place between author and reader, with socio-linguistic inquiries. The fairy-tale code in Bonaviri is a privileged observatory and is characterized by a systematical denunciation of the reality and a return to it through uncommon visions and solutions.

        Il petrarchismo “intenso” di Iacopo Sannazaro in una canzone per Federico I d’Aragona (= Rime XI) - pp. 580-592

        In its first part, the present article discusses the numerous imitations of Petrarch’s Canzone Spirto gentil (RVF 53) written by poets living and working at the Aragonese Court of Naples. In particular, it tries to verify the «intensity» of petrarchism in the poems in question by an analysis of their rhymes. The closest follower of Petrarch’s model in the corpus considered, Iacopo Sannazaro’s Canzone O fra tante procelle invitta e chiara, is the subject of the last part of the study. Arguments derived from the text aim at proving that the poem is not dedicated to Ferdinand II of Aragon (as asserted by Carlo Dionisotti), but to his uncle and successor, Frederick I.

        «Svenami tu, pastore»: Don Giovanni Tenorio antieroe goldoniano - pp.

        From the European, well-known ‘myth’ of Don Giovanni spanning the seventeenth century with charm ever new, and with variations to increase their functional capacity stage, Goldoni distances himself in his tragi-comedy Don Giovanni Tenorio, emphasizing an unprecedented feature of the seducer, that of cowardice. Decommissioned the role of the swordsman always ready to duel, the antihero of the Age of Enlightenment, even emptied of its moral value, appears in the eyes of the viewers as a bourgeois any, panicked because hounded by events. The allure for this stage is not less alive, considering that forty years later Mozart will draw his masterpiece perhaps even inspired by Goldoni and his original explicit, far different from that of the baroque scenarios.

        L’innesto fecondo e originale del pensiero rinascimentale nell’opera di Marin Držić - pp. 643-668

        L’innesto fecondo e originale del pensiero rinascimentale nell’opera di Marin Držić The essay focuses on the analysis of the work of the Croatian playwright Marin Držić (Dubrovnik 1508 - Venice 1567) and underlines its originality and uniqueness within the European Renaissance culture. The essay also highlights two essential elements which include Držić’s name in the history of European drama: the ability of the author to translate in his drama the philosophical and political thought of the Renaissance and the capacity to use themes and models of the classic and traditional comedy, doing it in a unique way and adapting them to a real and recognizable universe of the native Ragusa (Dubrovnik) and its hinterland.
