abstract

As a traveller in India looking for the myth of a natural purity and the utopia of an alternative to neo-capitalistic society, Pasolini felt the burning clash between expectation created by images of an ancient culture and the painful discovery of a world that has lost much of its past due to the spread of Western models. In L’Odore dell’India, the genre of reportage departs from a purely documentary pursuit and becomes a subjective and lyrical experience. Acute and original interpretation of reality experienced by the author as a coded system of sensory signs, Pasolini’s view of India reveals the mythical dimension of his perception and his disillusion confronted with a world whose ‘innocence’ is full of contradictions.
