MetadataShow full item record
By publishing Metamorin 1967, Vittorio Bodinistarted his second poetic season. However, it was destined to have a limited sequel due to the death which suddenly happened in 1970. The essay aims to examine the fundamental charac-teristics of this second moment of Bodini’s poetry, with a particular attention to Zetaand La civiltà industriale o Poesie ovali, two unpublished poetic collections. After some short information abou the philological questions, thepaper offersa general vision about the main themes and stylistic devices of the second pe-riod.Thinking about the legitimacy of poetry, Bodini verified the failure of the traditional po-etic code, adopting themes and styles of indus-trial society and combining metaliterature and metalinguistic reflection.
