abstract

During the second half of the 20th century, Italian poetry replies to the introduction of spoken language in literary forms with the continuous creation of neologisms and hapax. The Phlegrean poet Michele Sovente (1948-2011) often resorts to these coinages to build an imaginary placed between everyday reality and ancient memory. Sovente adopts an augmented language to describe a world augmented by archaic figures and charachters, part of the Phlegrean site’s memory and history. This linguistic work clearly figures in Sovente’s fourth book, Cumae, which, for the first time, shows how neologisms interact with the three main languages of Sovente’s writing: Italian, Cappella’s dialect and Latin.
