  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Carlo Emilio Gadda; La cognizione del dolore; Manuscripts; Drafts; Chronology.

Due to its content and composition, "La cognizione del dolore" is the most complex of Gadda's novels. Based on the early tripartition of the text - witnessed by the autograph diagram mentioned in Emilio Manzotti's studies - and the philological analysis of the manuscripts held at the Biblioteca Trivulziana in Milan, this essay proposes a different chronological sequence of the drafts and the backdating of the eighth and ninth sections.
