Monograph

Il realismo teatrale nella narrativa del Novecento: Vittorini, Pasolini, Calvino

  • Enrica Maria Ferrara,

This book describes Realism in twentieth-century literature from an estranged and unpublished perspective, and explores the hypothesis that some Italian writers (Vittorini, Pasolini and Calvino) looked at the expressive techniques of theatrical language as a privileged tool for the narrative elaboration of their own personal "theatrical Realism". The individual approach to the theatrical culture by the narrators taken into consideration is part of a wider tendency towards interdisciplinarity, and towards a breakdown of gender barriers concerning the whole of 20th century culture, with specific references to theories by Szondi, Brecht, Lukács, Gramsci, Contini and Bachtin. The author completes her theoretical investigation with a critical analysis of narrative masterpieces of the 20th century, such as The baron in the trees by Calvino and Conversazione in Sicilia by Vittorini.
