Title: Sangue e rovina: la Roma perturbante di Howthorne nel Fauno di marmo
Authors: Vanon Alliata, Michela
Issue Date: 2001
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: This article deals with Nathaniel Hoethorne's ambivalent representation of Rome in The Marble Faun, his last novel - a represantion which, while drawing on the Gothic tradition and English travel literature, is informed by the Freudian concept of the uncanny, here understood as the return of the repressed. Through a system of oppositions, the structure of the novel itself which adheres to the rules of fantastic literature, exemplifies this attitude, hawthorne's dialectics of repulsion and attraction, dread and desire towards the The Eternal City viewed both as a place of irrisistible temptations and as a locus of horror, corruption and death.
