Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the youthful "Catullian exercise" published here for the first time, Jesi makes a commentary on the poem 76 of the great Latin poet, following the thin line between love and death to the extreme limit. Focus the punctum where they, the reverses of each other, are one and test survival itself. There, with a characteristic movement of the Jesian posture, the eye arcs and stops fixed in the inner resonance of the "cry of all modern Western poetry". In that punctum you instantly configure a constellation that will continue to shine in the sky of Jesi: Rimbaud, Thomas Mann, Rilke. To lead you is Kore, in whose image the face of Lesbia, the beloved, continually emerges and is continually absent.
