    Il saggio prende in esame la recente edizione del Giornale di guerra e di prigionia di Carlo Emilio Gadda (Adelphi 2023), a cura di Paola Italia, mettendone in luce le novità e le differenze rispetto al testo critico procurato da Dante Isella (Garzanti 1992). I quaderni riemersi nel 2019, redatti da Gadda nel novembre-dicembre 1918 durante la prigionia a Celle Lager, rivelano dati cruciali sul suo rapporto conflittuale con Ugo Betti e sulle connessioni tra il Giornale e le prose belliche del Castello di Udine (Edizioni di Solaria 1934).   Delving Into the New Edition of Carlo Emilio Gadda’s “Giornale di guerra e di prigionia”and its Relation to “Il castello di Udine” and Other Works The essay examines the latest edition of Carlo Emilio Gadda’s Giornale di guerra e di prigionia (Adelphi 2023), edited by Paola Italia, highlighting its innovations and differences compared to the critical text provided by Dante Isella (Garzanti 1992). The notebooks, unearthed in 2019 and penned by Gadda during his imprisonment in Celle Lager in November-December 1918, unveil crucial insights into his conflicted relationship with Ugo Betti and the interrelations between the Giornale and the war-related prose later collected in Il castello di Udine (Edizioni di Solaria 1934)

    Nel tracciare, anche attraverso i dettagli di singole opere, i profili di alcuni dei protagonisti della poesia latina tra la crisi dell’Impero romano d’Occidente e la definitiva affermazione dei cosiddetti regni romano-barbarici (Optaziano Porfirio, Rutilio Namaziano, Sidonio Apollinare, Draconzio, Massimiano e Corippo), il volume si propone di mettere in luce le reciproche interazioni tra le nuove configurazioni della società dei secoli IV-VI d.C. e la fiorente produzione letteraria del periodo: ne emerge un quadro di straordinaria vivacità che intende aiutare il lettore a meglio focalizzare alcuni elementi caratterizzanti l’espressione poetica di un’epoca complessa e ricca di contraddizioni

    Among Books and in the Library

    The work is interwoven around the opportunity of empowerment that the return of a library offers to prisoners of the V. Madia prison in Barcelona Pozzo di Gotto. A library is an ideal and concrete space where one can discover themself and others. It is a place where you can practice freedom and work for it. It is an opportunity to give content to the “empty time” in which one is forced, when an impediment hinders the free enjoyment of oneself. To articulate this idea the condition of loss of freedom, stress and fragility, in which the inmates, placed in correspondence with the situation of segregation, illiteracy, violence and loss of human rights that afflicts Iranian women are considered. In the Nafisi Room, as we read in the book Reading Lolita in Tehran, confronting readings of literary works censored by the regime, young women of Tehran start a process of resilience and reaffirmation of themselves through a practice of reading, that similarly and for the same purposes will be able to make women and men detained, go to the library now functioning in Madia prison

    Il fallimento di una vita inabituale: Henry James e la costruzione della «nostra eroina» Isabel Archer

    Get PDF
    This article aims to raise crucial aspects of the philosophy of habit found in late 19th-century literature, particularly through an examination of Henry James’ portrayal of his character Isabel Archer. This goal is pursued through the analysis of two interconnected aspects forming the theoretical core of this contribution. Firstly, the focus is on Isabel Archer’s psychological depiction as a fundamental contribution of the English and American literature on the theme of habit, especially during the latter half of the 19th century. By contextualizing James’ work, exploring links to Peirce’s pragmatist philosophy and habit theory, the centrality of habit reflection in the psychological structuring of characters, interwoven with philosophical and narrative theories of individuality, is revealed. Furthermore, this reflection provides interpretative keys to understanding Henry James’ narrative choices concerning Isabel’s fate in the novel. Then this article directly specifically examines the construction of Isabel’s self which unfolds through the entire narrative events. The interpretative hypothesis guiding the investigation focuses on the connection between Isabel’s attempts to conduct life without habit and the resulting errors in judgment. To support this hypothesis, the importance of comparing key characters such as Gilbert Osmond and Madame Merle is highlighted. Through the narrative, it will emerge a peculiar ontological structure of the concept of habit. Moreover, through the psychological portraits in the novel, a critical exploration of James’ idea of individuality arises — acknowledging social dynamics and the ontological force of habit, rejecting the dichotomy represented by an optimistic individualism and a degenerate conventional life. The conclusion asserts that Isabel’s pursuit of an unhabitual life inevitably leads to failure. The solution does not lie in a rigid, conventional, dichotomous view of habit. Instead, James argues for a dynamic, relational view of habit: a fundamental aspect of being that must be acknowledged to understand the mechanisms that lead us from the variety of possibilities to the limited “actualities” of life. Through these two interrelated perspectives, the article aims to illuminate the psychological depth of Isabel Archer’s character, demonstrating how her story represents a cornerstone in the broader discussion of the nature and evolution of habit in 19th- century literature. From that, it sets the stage for a more comprehensive discussion on habit’s role in shaping characters and narratives during this historical period.This article aims to raise crucial aspects of the philosophy of habit found in late 19th-century literature, particularly through an examination of Henry James’ portrayal of his character Isabel Archer.

    Forma e trasfigurazione in "Una giornata qualunque del danzatore Gregorio Samsa", di Barba, Varley e Gleijeses

    Il saggio è dedicato allo spettacolo Una giornata qualunque del danzatore Gregorio Samsa di Eugenio Barba, di Julia Varley e di Lorenzo Gleijeses, interpretato da Gleijeses sin dal 2016. Dopo un processo di creazione durato oltre cinque anni, attraverso numerosi processi di riscrittura, lo spettacolo, parzialmente ispirato dalle Metamorfosi di Kafka, affronta il difficile rapporto tra un giovane artista e le sue principali figure di riferimento (un padre esigente, un regista teatrale autoritario, una fidanzata preoccupata, una psicologa eccessivamente schematica). In scena, la partitura dell’attore si sviluppa intorno a una ripetizione ossessiva di movimenti e di azioni, eseguita con modulazione di intensità e di ritmo. A partire dalla circolarità delle ripetizioni teatrali, il lavoro dell’attore crea un percorso più lineare, forse verticale, che mira alla purificazione di sé attraverso lo sforzo estenuante, la precisione dell’artigianato e che, nel finale, si interroga sulla possibilità della trascendenza nell’incompiutezza della creazione artistica. L’inesauribile ed essenziale ricerca di un’opera performativa basata sull’organicità dell’attore-danzatore è quindi al tempo stesso una “condanna” e una possibilità di elevazione. Circondato da un sofisticato apparato di luci e di suoni, l’attore-danzatore agisce in un contesto multisensoriale all’interno del quale si modula una poetica dello spazio incentrata sulla presenza dell’essere umano. Riflettendo su questi elementi, l’articolo intende offrire una ricostruzione della genesi e del processo creativo dello spettacolo, anche in confronto con alcuni lavori precedenti di Barba e con alcune recenti tappe della sua carriera teatrale

    Un pantin merveilleux. L’attore di Diderot come figura dell’eccedenza

    Get PDF
    The Paradoxe sur le comédien describes the art of acting as an exercise of multiplicity. According to Diderot, the great actor must be at the same time nothing and everything. In his materialistic approach, acting is considered a work and a concrete experience, where the actor must find a balance between the grace of the marionette and the exaggeration of the ideal. In absence of any passion, this kind of actor should be self-controlled and detached in order to move the audience. Indeed, Diderot’s theory is very concerned with the relationship between the artist and the spectator, not only for a moral purpose, but in view of a layered aesthetic experience. It follows that a dialectic between measure and excess can be considered as an exceptional key to understanding Diderot’s conception of theatre, which can also surprisingly disclose some contemporary features.Il Paradosso sull’attore tratteggia l’arte teatrale come un esercizio di molteplicità: secondo Diderot, il grande attore dev’essere al contempo tutto e nulla. Con un approccio materialista, la recitazione viene descritta come un lavoro e un’esperienza concreta in cui l’attore deve trovare un equilibrio tra la grazia della marionetta e l’eccedenza dell’ideale. Privo di sensibilità, padrone di sé, critico e distaccato, questo attore è interamente teso a commuovere il pubblico. Infatti, la teoria di Diderot è innanzitutto attenta alla relazione con lo spettatore, non tanto in vista di un messaggio morale da veicolare, quanto di un’esperienza estetica da promuovere. In questo contesto, la dialettica tra misura ed eccedenza si rivela un’importante chiave di lettura della concezione diderotiana del teatro, che peraltro racchiude sorprendenti anticipazioni di istanze contemporanee

    La ricostruzione del tema della prova del risarcimento del danno da occupazione illegittima di un immobile, così come fornita dalle Sezioni Unite, rappresenta un’utile occasione di riflessione circa la nozione di danno, e pone l’accento sulla necessità di affrontare il problema all’interno della concretezza della singola vicenda di responsabilità.The reconstruction of the issue of proof of damages for the unlawful occupation of a property, provided by the Joint Sections of the Supreme Court, provides a useful opportunity to reflect on the notion of damage, and emphasizes the need to address the problem within the concreteness of the individual case of liability
