Two Italian poets of the Twentieth century between South and Europe: Girolamo Comi and Vittorio Bodini

Università del Salento
The lesson is about two of the most original Italian poets of the Twentieth century, although neglected by Italian critics (in fact, for questionable reasons, they are expelled from the canon): Girolamo Comi and Vittorio Bodini. During the lesson, will be traced the profiles of these two writers considering their common Southern origin and their opening to the European culture. Will be also considered their deeply different poetic conception: in Comi there is a meta-historical and meta-temporal line, while Bodini is deeply rooted in the history and society of his time.
