This Thesis is about one of the country's best-known (in Italy and elsewhere) contemporary author Antonio Tabucchi (1943-2012). It makes an attempt to understand two literary topos of Tabucchi’s work: the writer-readercharacter bond and the writer commitment, studied using his journalistic and literary work. The second part of this Thesis compares Tabucchi’s work with two writers, Luigi Pirandello (1867-1936) and Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935), who have inspired Tabucchi in his work. An important observation is that the author imagination and author commitment form a harmonic duo in Tabucchi’s writing. Another area investigated is how the author commitment can be seen in Tabucchi’s articles published in several newspapers in Italy and Europe. My interest for this research is based on my observation that, despite the numerous researches done about Tabucchi, these themes have been treated only superficially. The critics often divide Tabucchi’s literary work in two (the fantastic literature and author commitment). This Thesis doesn’t make a separation between these two, and thus it aims to provide an exhaustive portrait of the Tuscan writer. [edited by Author]
