Landscapes of Desire in the Poetry of Vittorio Sereni

Francesca Southerden

  • The first book-length study in English of Vittorio Sereni (1913-83), a major figure of Italian twentieth-century poetry
  • Re-evaluates, through close reading, Sereni's relationship to figures of the Italian poetic tradition, including Dante, Petrarch, and Leopardi
  • Interdisciplinary approach that incorporates elements of linguistics, psychoanalytic theory, textuality, and poetics
  • Proposes a model of intertextual analysis that goes beyond a consideration of the poet's sources to examine the patterns of desire upon which the authors with which he is in dialogue establish their own discourses
