Download Il lettore creativo (German Edition) by Lina Bolzoni PDF

By Lina Bolzoni

Accogliendo le sollecitazioni delle moderne teorie critiche che sottolineano il ruolo creativo del lettore e l'importanza dell'intreccio fra parole e immagini, il libro ripercorre i vari modi in cui nel Rinascimento si cerca di padroneggiare il territorio misterioso che lega los angeles memoria e l'invenzione, los angeles lettura e l. a. scrittura, l'imitazione e l. a. creazione del nuovo. Fra Petrarca, Alberti, Erasmo, Tasso si seguono i modi in cui l'autore rappresenta se stesso come lettore, e si mostra come Giordano Bruno rilegge l'Ariosto così da rispecchiare nel poema il suo carattere e il suo destino. I testi utopici e le loro illustrazioni, il gioco paradossale della scrittura in Pietro Aretino, l'arte della memoria fra Pico della Mirandola e Tommaso Campanella, le storie di Ulisse che Ulisse Aldrovandi fa dipingere nella sua villa di campagna, Tasso e Galileo, e il modo in cui Tasso si sente guardato e messo in questione dal poema che ha scritto, oltre che dai censori: il filo rosso del 'lettore creativo' permette di esplorare testi classici e altri meno noti del nostro Rinascimento. Un'analisi storica e insieme una testimonianza in keeping with il nostro pace, sul piacere del tutto personale che l. a. lettura può offrire e sulle risorse inventive che può alimentare.
