The zoomorphic images ("oyster", "cicada", etc.) to which Meli recurs some known letters of the last phase of his life, are functional to a representation of self marked by a feeling of frustation which does not allow the activation of obvious compensations instead in his other texts, and particularly in the "Odi".
