Contro i nuovi Barbari: d’Annunzio, Spengler, l’ombra di Cesare

Alfredo Sgroi    Università degli Studi di Catania, Italia    



In the European culture between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries there is a denunciation of the decline of Western civilization, with the expectation of a ransom. The new Caesarism is the dream of many intellectuals. D'Annunzio and Spengler are protagonists in this cultural phase. The Italian writer anticipates the German philosopher. In fact, works like Le vergini delle rocce confirm the many convergences with Der untergand der Abendland, published in 1918. In this essay we analyse the analogies between the Weltanschauung of the two authors.
