I desideri e le gioie dell'ostrica. Sul Meli delle Odi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


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".
