Narrating Intensity: History And Emotions In Elsa Morante, Goliarda Sapienza And Elena Ferrante, Stefania Porcelli 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Narrating Intensity: History And Emotions In Elsa Morante, Goliarda Sapienza And Elena Ferrante, Stefania Porcelli

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation examines the representation of emotions in My Brilliant Friend and in two Italian novels written between the 1960s and the 1970s – La Storia (1974, History: A Novel) by Elsa Morante (1912-1985) and L’arte della gioia (The Art of Joy, 1998/2008) by Goliarda Sapienza (1924-1996). However, rather than remaining centered on these works’ emotive landscapes alone, I seek instead to trace the continuities that link these two “historical” novels of the past to Ferrante’s successful and more recent tetralogy. I look at the representation of emotions and at what I call “moments of intensity” – moments of ...


The Transmission Of The Somniale Danielis, From Latin To Vernacular Italian (Laurenziano Martelli 12 And Riccardiano 859), Valerio Cappozzo 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

The Transmission Of The Somniale Danielis, From Latin To Vernacular Italian (Laurenziano Martelli 12 And Riccardiano 859), Valerio Cappozzo

Translat Library

The Somniale Danielis is a dream manual widely circulated in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It is structured through dream symbols and their concise explanation. Medieval manuscripts of the Somniale—from the ninth century to the end of the fifteenth century—generally bear the same dreams, but show changes in the structure of their entries. The coherence of its symbology throughout several centuries allows for a linguistic analysis across these dream manuals that situates them in specific cultural contexts. This article focuses on two manuscripts, each containing a Latin and an Italian version of the Somniale, and aims to ...


Author Vs. Reader: A Struggle For Literary Power In Italo Calvino's "If On A Winter's Night A Traveler", Megan Finlan 2020 Lebanon Valley College

Author Vs. Reader: A Struggle For Literary Power In Italo Calvino's "If On A Winter's Night A Traveler", Megan Finlan

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

If on a winter's night a traveler is postmodern novel that explores the relationship between the author and reader through a game constructed by author, Italo Calvino. This game is focused around the struggle for literary power as the Reader (you) and the Other Reader (a character by the name of Ludmilla) fight desperately to find literary satisfaction while Calvino pushes the boundaries of a reader's dedication. The game unfolds as you are on an adventure as the Reader, seeking the endings of novels fabricated by Calvino that are incomplete, in a desperate attempt to find any form ...


New World Triumph: Visconti's Il Gattopardo, Daria Pietropaolo 2020 University of Miami

New World Triumph: Visconti's Il Gattopardo, Daria Pietropaolo

2020 JHU Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium

The end of the Risorgimento, a tumultuous period of Italian state unification culminating in 1861, represented a transition in Italian politics and identity. Before the Risorgimento, the Italian peninsula was a collection of kingdoms and competing political entities. As the country unified for the first time, the ruling aristocratic class became increasingly less powerful and relevant. Luchino Visconti's Il Gattopardo recounts the novel of Tomasi di Lampedusa, depicting this period in Italy's history by exploring the tension between the old, aristocratic class and new bourgeoisie class. Particularly, Visconti's development of the story's two leading protagonists, Prince ...


Scrivere Di Islam. Raccontare La Diaspora, Simone Brioni Dr., Shirin Ramzanali Fazel 2020 Stony Brook University

Scrivere Di Islam. Raccontare La Diaspora, Simone Brioni Dr., Shirin Ramzanali Fazel

Department of English Faculty Publications

Scrivere di Islam. Raccontare la diaspora (Writing About Islam. Narrating a Diaspora) is a meditation on our multireligious, multicultural, and multilingual reality. It is the result of a personal and collaborative exploration of the necessity to rethink national culture and identity in a more diverse, inclusive, and anti-racist way. The central part of this volume – both symbolically and physically – includes Shirin Ramzanali Fazel’s reflections on the discrimination of Muslims, and especially Muslim women, in Italy and the UK. Looking at school textbooks, newspapers, TV programs, and sharing her own personal experience, this section invites us to change the way ...


Vulgar Love: The Sicilian School And The New Aesthetic, Jason Collins 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Vulgar Love: The Sicilian School And The New Aesthetic, Jason Collins

Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture

Much consideration has been given in the last century to the Scuola Siciliana, or the Sicilian School, the first coterie of poets in an already developed but still emergent Italian vernacular, and this in spite of an almost complete lack of autograph copies of poetic works in the original language. A great deal of this scholarship or research has a taxonomic and theoretical approach to the works, their composition, and the atmosphere that fostered them, and oftentimes attempts to position the Sicilian School within the historiography of Italian literature (particularly as progenitors to the Tuscan poets and thus Dante, Petrarch ...


The Rise Of The Far-Right In Italy, Justin Lewis 2020 Arcadia University

The Rise Of The Far-Right In Italy, Justin Lewis

Capstone Showcase

The rising influence of far-right extremism in mainstream politics has been an issue the world over. From the U.S. to Brazil, this phenomenon is causing a shift in the ways in which governments are run. There may not be a better example than in Italy, where far-right parties have come to power democratically and continue to gain popularity. This thesis aims to explore and explain the underlying reasons behind the surge of the far-right to power in Italy. An emphasis is placed on going beyond superficial reasons such as rising levels of immigration to give a more complete story.

Beyond Nationalism? Blank Spaces At The Documenta 1955 – The Legacy Of An Exhibition Between Old Europe And New World Order, Mirl Redmann 2019 University of Geneva

Beyond Nationalism? Blank Spaces At The Documenta 1955 – The Legacy Of An Exhibition Between Old Europe And New World Order, Mirl Redmann

Artl@s Bulletin

Was the first documenta really beyond nationalism? documenta 1955 has been widely regarded as conciliation for the fascist legacy of the exhibition “Degenerate Art” (1937), and as an attempt to reintegrate Germany into the international arts community. This article employs published and archival sources in order to understand if and how documenta was impacted by the legacy of nationalism in post-fascist Germany. A biographic sketch of Antonio Corpora (1909-2004) shows how the purportedly “universalist” selection criteria employed by documenta erased cultural specificity and solidified nationalist conceptions of center and periphery.
