Carlo Emilio Gadda revitalizes the use of obscenity in many of hisworks based upon a solid traditional foundation; obscenity does not only consistof outbursts or mockery; it also bears a heuristic function. Through the expression of obscenity, literature reclaims a space of protest and of mockery inthe face of official and academic culture, often sweetened and exclusive.
