Between poetry and novel: the expression of the tragic in Francesco Biamonti's work

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


This essay introduces the four novels by Francesco Biamonti, "L'angelo di Avrigue" [1983], "Vento largo" [1991], "Attesa sul mare" [1994] e "Le parole la notte" [1998] as a tetralogy that finds its wholeness in a common tragic understanding of the human condition. Such a conception is expressed with a personal style based on the description of the landscape with a pictorial slant: nature in the landscape-novels by Biamonti is marked by a conflictual harmony between the limited particular and the unlimited universal, a mark that for Hölderlin constituted the very essence of the tragic.
