Sdoppiamento del nome e sdoppiamento della lingua: il destino fallace di un personaggio grassiano.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[automatically translated] The protagonist of the novel Disìo (2005) Silvana Grasso attempts an impossible metamorphosis through a change of their personal data. Memes / Cyane, between being and no longer wanted to be, between the south and the north, between weakness and courage, between irrationality and science, also change their language use, adapting them to the new personality. The theme of the double - embodied by double antroponimica identity - becomes, in this novel, a personal resolution mode of the self wounded but does not aim to reconcile the two identities, but the suppression of the first. As with Mattia Pascal / Adriano Meis, though she, too, will face a fate not cured by geographical distance or detachment from sources of suffering.
