Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


[Autom. eng. transl.] Theatrical writing had a significant importance for Pascoli. He directed his investigation so that poetic thought acted on the theater, in order to make it tend towards poetry, thus hoping for a return to the poetry of Shakespearean theater. However, as his confidence with the stage was limited, Pascoli availed himself of the advice and advice of important figures of the dramatic art, first of all the Ravenna actor Luigi Rasi and the organist Marco Enrico Bossi. The Pascolian dramatic experimentation was concentrated, for the most part, in the search for a dramatic language that gave voice to the inconsistent and to the abstract, creating a dreamlike atmosphere similar to that of the lyric; this language was, according to the poet, traceable in the writing of librettos set to music sometimes by Pascoli himself.
