Abstract

The circumstances of the terms fate and fatality, apparently extemporaneous in Saba’s work, trace a path that is almost always connected to the expression of conflict. In Canzoniere 1921, this conflict configures an I/world polarity, following the Foscolo-Leopardi model revisited ; instead, in the Scorciatoie he indicates an internal dynamic in Freudian terms, unaware but absolutely decisive, to the point of imposing itself on any form of chance. Here the idea of fate assumes an original and complete configuration, thanks also to the influence of Freud’s reflection on Anágkh. Undergoing progressive interiorization in the unconscious zones of the individual, and human history in general, Saba’s «fatality» becomes a key concept in reading of individual experiences and human history in general.
