Abstract

This dissertation analyses Ermanno Rea’s Mistero napoletano (1995), Walter Siti’s Troppi paradisi (2006) and Wu Ming 2 & Antar Mohamed’s Timira. Romanzo meticcio (2012) as three case-studies of how writing connected to personal experiences and essayistic genres are combined in such a way as to give way to what can be defined as a first-person essay-novel. This literary form can also be considered as a typical example of what the literary scholar Raffaele Donnarumma has called “hypermodernity” in contemporary Italian literature, a multifaceted literary trend consisting in the critical and creative exploration of the possible interactions between literary forms and societal issues. The expression “personal experience writing” is used for a broad variety of life-writing, ranging from “traditional” forms of autobiography, biography and diary entries to creative literary adaptations of these forms (autofiction, biofiction, narrative diary). The “essayistic writing” that has been addressed include a wide set of discursive and argumentative modules through which authors elaborate and reflect on the literary, cultural, political and social contexts with which they interact as creative writers.
