La memoria ‘breve’ delle Faville del maglio
The work traces a hermeneutic line between the poem «La morte del cervo» in Alcyone and some Faville del maglio, prosastic texts in which d’Annunzio experiences a form of autobiography and the celebration of the poetic self. Starting from the Favilla, dated 1907, celebrating the sculpture of Clemente Origo, the essay establishes links with some texts, written much later, in which the poet turns poetic creation into a mythical ‘event’. In the last favilla, the symbolic act of the poet, who becomes centaur, can be read allegorically as a poetic act.
