  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Mario Praz; Posterity; Comparative Literature.

The article is a re-examination of Mario Praz's inheritance in literary criticism, with a particular eye to his standing in comparative studies. Several of his essays are discussed to this end, in particular 'Per i posteri' and 'La scoperta del paesaggio', besides two chapters from "The Romantic Agony" (with the indication of Petrarch's and Yeats's absence in them), and one from "The House of Life".
