Sonno e 'passaggio'

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Sleep and 'passage'

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] The paper proposes to examine some mythical Greek reasons for which the absence of sleep or, on the contrary, the perenniality of an uninterrupted sleep - both ways of excluding the 'passage' from the state of sleep to that of waking and vice versa , as a stigma of the human condition - are figures of a condition 'other' than the human, and sometimes of a more specifically divine condition.
