Informations and abstract

Keywords: Giorgio Caproni; Metrics and Stylistic; Variant Readings.

This essay aims to describe the evolution of Giorgio Caproni's style through the analysis of the variant readings of his texts, and to define his special position in the Italian poetry of the 1930s. The metrics and the syntax change as the themes and the historical context do, and the variants testify the poet's attempt to find a stronger cohesion and maturity, as well as his approach to the closed forms and the tradition.
