Abstract

This article offers a reading of Sanguineti's work of the early 1960s across narrative and poetic genres, focusing on the relationship of the novel Capriccio italiano (1963) to the poetic work that preceded it (Erotopaegnia, 1960), as well as to the collection alongside which it was written (Purgatorio de l'Inferno, 1964), and how these relationships relate to the development of Sanguineti's poetics more generally. The texts are read in the context of theoretical discussions in the Gruppo 63 and neoavanguardia, including questions of representation of the io and of objective reality, and how these are played out against the framework of genre categories and expectations.
