CFP: Edited Volume on D’Annunzio as World Literature

Deadline: August 30, 2021

In the last two decades, there has been a renewed interest in Decadent literature, and a reassessment of the Decadent movement in relation to a poetics of circulation and reception. Scholarship of Decadence have been especially productive in unveiling the crucial role of translation, the extent to which Decadent authors read, cited and plagiarized one another. Novels previously judged derivative or stylistically lacking have been re considered in light of their participation in a network; moreover, scholars have demonstrated that Decadence’s focus on style did not preclude engagement in socio-political issues. Most importantly, while studies of Decadence were until recently focused on France, or at the most on French-Anglo relationships, recent scholarship has highlighted how Decadence functioned as a transnational, cosmopolitical movement that found disciples across and beyond Europe.

This project builds on these developments to examine the work of the Italian author Gabriele D’Annunzio (1863-1938) within a world literature framework, from his own engagement with translation and multilingualism to the international circulation and reception of his work.
