It isn’t surprising, at this point, to say that critics have spoken of “symbolic realism” with regard to the narrative processes of The Moon and the Bonfires. The recurrence of images In fact, the “modest Divine Comedy”, is based on certain specific images that contain a link between the pure image, of symbol and myth, […]

About Mattia Cravero
Nato in provincia di Cuneo, classe 1993, sono attualmente specializzando in Culture Moderne Comparate presso l'Università degli Studi di Torino. Dai miei studi letterari (nella fattispecie comparatistici) cerco di imparare i metodi della ricerca sui testi e della teorizzazione di nodi critici ad essi legati per comprenderne il funzionamento.
Inoltre, vivo la Langa da quando sono bambino. Uno dei miei progetti è quello di estrapolarne generi e forme letterari riprendendo la produzione degli scrittori nostrali al fine di comporre, in maniera accessibile a tutti, un mosaico più completo possibile della letteratura langarola.

Along […]
The title of this article will no doubt amaze numerous readers: comparing such an important piece of work as is Dante’s Divine Comedy with Pavese’s work might actually seem to be somewhat of a fantasy, perhaps dictated by an excessive fixation in comparing the texts. Pavese’s letter In fact, reading one of Pavese’s letters dated […]
The issue remains pretty well unresolved, lacking an equally strong reply, perhaps leaving the answer to later writings, whether they be poetic or prose. The Piedmont and the le Langhe In fact, if we analyze Pavese’s poetry, we can clearly see how the Langa and Piedmont are present; namely, the place where the writer grew […]
One of the pivotal points around which Pavese’s relationship rotates with the Langhe is, most certainly, the use of language, both in its entire production in ‘Feria d’agosto’ (August Holiday) and ‘La luna e i falò’ (The Moon and the Bonfire). The use of the Piedmont dialect At a first glance, the incision of the […]
