Aracoeli di Elsa Morante
Tra fughe e ritorni, un viaggio alla ricerca di sélock_openopen access checkpeer reviewed
I propose a close reading of Elsa Morante’s latest book, Aracoeli, drawing upon three key literary devices: escapism, metamorphosis and paradox, which I use in relation to both the principal characters in the book, Aracoeli and her son Emanuele. Moreover, my reading will also bring to light the author’s personal experience and how it is relevant to the novel particularly in relation to the literary device of escapism.
