Sodalizio e congedo : Mario Luzi e il simbolismo

Abstract : Mario Luzi, after a poetic history that crosses all the Nineteenth Century, has really understood what Symbolism means. It is required to distinguish between two steps in the Symbolist influence on Mario Luzi’s poetry: the first step is ontological, and it takes place in Avvento Notturno (1940). The second period is marked by linguistic and rhythmic features, and it is related with the collections Al fuoco della controversia (1978), Per il battesimo dei nostri frammenti (1985), Frasi e incisi di un canto salutare (1990). In my research I examined this latest work, in order to enlighten the continuities between Symbolism and Mario Luzi’s poetry, that is marked by two fundamental characteristics: from one side Luzi realizes a long itinerary in exploring new solutions, but on the other side we can observe the resurgence – also if fickle and transformed – of features and stylistic motifs.In this overview, the French Symbolism is an essential starting point: indeed, Symbolist poets are the underground or outward source, depending on the creative periods; Symbolist features accompany the author throughout all his production.Moreover, in 1990, with Frasi e incisi di un canto salutare, the distance occurred between the first readings of these poets makes come to lights the permanence, the life span features inherited from the Symbolist poets and entered in Luzi’s poetry as raw materials, even if deeply transformed.From the texts emerges a constant reference to the idea, to the Symbolist way: in the Luzi’s Nineties poetry it becomes a substantial, settled Symbolism, that is visible in the structure and in the poetic trend, other than in the permanence of topics and stylistic motifs
