Giovanni Comisso, after d’Annunzio passed away, proposed to place his artistic figure in the framework of the contemporary critical horizon, selecting a very peculiar formal line, distinguished by ‘clarity’, in order to measure himself and, together, to take the necessary distances from the teaching of the ‘Vate’. In the second part of this paper, a Comissian critical essay is published, which appeared in the early ’60s in Il Mondo of Pannunzio and has remained in the shadows so far; in it we summarise an exemplary historiographical and stylistic balance of the Italian narrative between the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, re-reading in perspective and under another way d’Annunzio’s function.

Keywords: Comisso. D’Annunzio. Clarity. The Vate. Style. Criticism.
