Gilberto Lonardi, L’Achille dei «Canti». Leopardi, «L’infinito», il poema del ritorno a casa, Firenze, Le Lettere, 2017, pp. 238
With its seven chapters, the latest book by Gilberto Lonardi proposes a personal miscellany and some unpublished works. The fil rouge is an element that has interested the author for a long time, as the centre of a series of publications that occupied over ten years. According to Lonardi’s studies, the poetry of Homer and, with it, the whole aesthetic dimension of the ancient world, represent an inalienable presupposition of Leopardi’s literary identity, continuing to interact with a poetry that constantly has to re-consider itself.
