Tra calunnia e inganno: strategia della parola nella Fedra di Seneca

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Phedra's communicative behaviour creates a short circuit from which the pathos ofSeneca drama emanates through some aspects of communication such asmanipulation, deceive and slander that flow into the tragic structure and mediate thetransition between passion and lie, degrading the metaphorical significance of theprotagonist. The power of the word is the core and the propulsion vector in thedramatic structure of Seneca's Phaedra. The word reveals and hides between what istransparent and what is indecipherable, escaping from the clearness of truth tobecome a subtle instrument of lie.Fama
