Elementi di paesaggio sonoro nel Solus ad solam di Gabriele d’Annunzio

Alessandra Trevisan    Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, Italia    



Especially known for its autobiographical content and not for its structure of diary and epistolary, Solus ad solam is a complex book with a philological problem inside. A new way to read it is trying to highlight acoustic and auditive elements, using the definition of ‘soundscape’ given by Schafer in 1977. Collecting and creating an acoustic vocabulary, comparing it to the one in Notturno’s text, it is possibile to find a new way to interpret both of them. Regarding this perspective, sounds, voice and everything connected to the ‘ear’ establish also a predominance of power, control and absence explicated in the structure.
