Forgetta, Emanuela (2019) La Città e la casa: spazi urbani e domestici in Maria Aurèlia Capmany, Natalia Ginzburg, Elsa Morante e Mercè Rodoreda. Doctoral Thesis.
This research collects texts from Maria Aurèlia Capmany, Natalia Ginzburg, Elsa Morante and Mercè Rodoreda, four great female authors of the twentieth century, with the aim of reconstructing the physical spaces they described in their books. These texts offer several cues to reflect on the representation of space in female literature. The study starts from the canonical contrast between the internal space, linked to the primary perception, and the external space, regulated by social dynamics. More specifically, the effects of the caused by the prevarication of the former on the latter. The goal is not to draft an exhaustive history of theories of space in literature but, once the distinctive features are highlighted, to investigate through the novel the depths of individual feeling that, in the case of female subjectivity, shows several critical issues.
