«No, non il caval sauro, per noi»

Antifrasi e riferimenti dannunziani nell’opera di Carlo Emilio Gadda

Antonio Zollino    Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore Milano    



D’Annunzio, according to a Gadda’s remarkable declaration, constituted one of the pillars of his own formation. This paper focused on the controversial relationship between Gadda and d’Annunzio: after an initial infatuation, the more grounded Gadda takes on openly critical and parodic positions (in his works, but especially in some sarcastic epistolary communications with Gianfranco Contini). This attitude, however, is not constant over time and leaves place for unequivocal appreciation of the overall figure and specific areas of d’Annunzio’s production.

Keywords: Gadda. D’Annunzio. 1900’s Italian literature. Cultural education. Literary sources.
