The main aim of the research has been to gain a better knowledge of Joyce Lussu, a woman whose life intertwined with some of the most important events in contemporary history.
The thesis pays special attention to the social and political commitment of the author, through a reading of her – very sui generis – autobiographical writings. These writings are a window into her thinking – a thinking shaped by experience gained during one of the most dramatic periods of the twentieth century. Animated by an invincible amor vitae, Joyce Lussu believed in the redemption of humanity.
This work is also the result of careful research in little-known archives, and offers multiple readings of a wealth of papers by Joyce Lussu, from those of her youth (many of them unpublished) to those of her best-known period. In this way, the research focuses on topics such as poetry and translation, the different facets of absolutism (from religious precepts to the supremacy of men over women), ecology, consciousness and freedom.
For Joyce Lussu, exile was an experience that spurred her into action. Being detached from one’s mother country might lead to an abyss; however, it can also make room for new relationships, new stories, unexpected opportunities. Exile is, therefore, an ambivalent state: destructive and negative on the one hand, creative and productive on the other.
