Intrecci tra neoplasia e letteratura
  • Oleksandra Rekut,

Six chapters, divided into four paths, over a time span that from the 19th Century reaches the year 2000, have made it possible to give voice to canonical authors and outsiders, to prose writers and poets who investigate and confront on one of the most dramatical themes of the contemporary consciousness, that of oncological disease. A sort of oncography syllabary characterized by an extraordinary mixture of medical terminology and commonplaces, colloquial expressions and courtly loans from classical languages, foreign idioms, dialects and periphrastic language originated from 'oncologhems' used instead of the word 'cancer', as well as from synaesthesias, tropes, processes, remembrances, olfactory and visual perceptions and the inflation of interrupted works.

Oleksandra Rekut-Liberatore obtained her PhD and taught Comparative Literature at the University of Kiev. After moving to Italy, she obtained a PhD in Italian Literature and Philology at the University of Florence. Starting from a strong interest in hermeneutics, her research focuses on the narratological and fictional registers of the text, with particular attention to the interdisciplinary crossings between literature and physio-pathology. She published a book on Finzione e alterità dell’io: presenze nella scrittura femminile tra XX e XXI secolo (Fiction and otherness of the ego: Presences in female writing between the 20th and 21st Centuries) (Florence, SEF, 2013).
