Project description

A study of the role of "imagination" and "knowledge" in poetics of the novel in a number of authors who do not easily fit in the dominant vision on the development of the Italian novel between 1945 and 1980. The final objective is to contribute to a recalibration of the history of the Italian novel in this period.
