The particular rhetorical choices through which Gozzano gives form to the metamorphoses of caterpillars and then to the life of butterflies in Epistole entomologiche, in their close correspondence with the dynamic material they represent, suggest that the author may indeed have changed perspective, at least formally, compared to his first two collections. against the backdrop of borrowings from Dante and a philosophical outlook inherited from the first half of the Twentieth century, this study aims to demonstrate the peculiarities of that “other voice” with which Gozzano promised to return after the Colloqui.
