Oscurità, sguardo e lettura degli spazi. Sensibilità geografiche nel Notturno di D’Annunzio

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper aims to contribute to the geographical debate upon the role, in literature, of perception in reading space and landscapes. Here we want to investigate how the darkness, a salient element of the night, determines, in D’Annunzio’s poetics, specific readings of spaces. In particular, we want to focus on Notturno, a work written in conditions of blindness. The blindness, comparable – as indicated by the title – to the night, increases the perceptual sensitivity: this way, the spatial readings acquire, from a geographical point of view, particular interest.
