The essay presents itself as a comparative analysis of novels. Nessuno torna indietrofrom Alba De Céspedes and Tra donne sole by Cesare Pavese, highlighting interesting analogies and food for thought. One of the characteristics of feminine writing is surely self-investigation, that is, the creation of almost autobiographical characters who confront and face gender issues, from which an exhausting search for their own identity is apparent: the characters, in fact, they are confronted with gender stereotypes and try to free themselves from the roles they are required to affirm themselves. Follow the stories and the choices ofthe female characters protagonists of the novels. Path that also highlights Pavese’s extraordinary ability to tell “from her side”, not only in the third person, but capable –through a long experimental laboratory that starts from the stories –of givingvoice to a female lyricist who he tells, and seems to acquire greater corporeality on the page as he acquires autonomy in society and in history, highlighting the complex narrative evolution that sees the female characters transforming themselves from “object of desire”to “desiring subject”.
