Sulle onde del «canto dell’antico sangue»: incipit ed explicit di La figlia di Iorio
The pastoral drama La figlia di Iorio (1904) is a concentrate of musical and linguistic experiments. Incipit and explicit have a very important function in it. In fact, they characterise the ‘stacchi’ or ties that characterise this text with a complex and undulating architecture, similar to a symphony. In this essay, these very important moments in the economy of tragedy are analysed.
