La foresta del racconto (e il «teatro naturale»)lock_openopen access
The paper explores the relationship between different levels in the narration, identifying in the figure of metalepsi a useful tool to investigate Nane Oca’s structure. In its narratological sense, metalepsi is the contamination between the world in which one tells and the world of which one tells, a deliberate transgression of the established separation between defined levels resulting from intrusions or contaminations across the narration (e.g., the character of Suor Gabriella, who flies inside narrative levels, or the figure of the author-character). Eventually, further considerations are provided on the presence (and the meaning) of sketches and illustrations inside the trilogy.
