D’Annunzio, nome comune
Note sulla critica saviniana agli estetismi
D’Annunzio is often mentioned, in Savinio’s works, as a typical representative of a cultural trend rather than as an author in his own right. This is due to the fact that, according to Savinio, the aesthetistic poetry is incapable of an authentic artistic creation, because it finds its place naturally in the field of imitation. Therefore, d’Annunzio’s works are the results of an anonymous and regressive experience, which is the perfect antithesis of Savinio’s idea about art. But this subject is structurally connected with a global and very original view of the world that Savinio develops especially during and after the World War 2. This work investigates the complex ties between the Savinio’s ‘antidannunzianismo’ and the development of his global elaboration.
