Forgotten Communication: Humans and Dogs in Curzio Malaparte’s and Carlo Levi’s Literature


  •  José Maurício Saldanha Alvarez    

Abstract

This paper analyzes the role of the dog in the work of two modern Italian writers, selecting from each of the texts in which they formulate a peculiar role for the animal represented in their works. The dog is sometimes capable of being the key that opens a magical world and becomes the counterpart to humanity, harboring the feelings that modernity and fascist politics displaced during the crucial time between 1922 and 1945.
