Thesis title The poetic universe of Giuseppe Conte Abstract The main object of our research is the poetic work of Giuseppe Conte. His entire poetic production, although differentiated, reveals a continuity in stylistic research and philosophy of existence. Conte's poetry collections are an attempt to express in artistic form his personal vision of literature, the world, society, man and different cultures. Our study explores a poetics that expresses Conte's relationship with poets and writers of the past and present. For Conte, poetry is necessary and fundamental to contemporary civilisation, it is an essential nourishment of the human imagination and soul, it must be understood as fundamental to the aesthetic, moral and economic rebirth of the world. In our study, we first analyse Conte's distance from the neo-avant-garde: he has always considered himself an «outsider» in relation to the artistic and literary movements of the 20th and 21st centuries. His conception of myth and nature as an antidote to the materialism of Western society led him to be one of the founders of «Mythomodernism». We ask why the poet was interested in lost non-European civilizations and examine his reinterpretation of classical myths. We study the role that Conte attributes to poetry in bringing together Western and Eastern cultures; we also analyse the influence of Ligurian «culture» and landscape on Conte. Finally, we focus on the values of language, in particular the expressive value of metaphor (on which Conte wrote fundamental essays), on poetic form and the analysis of language. The techniques used by Conte allow poetry to become the bearer of a new energy and a renewed work of civilisation.

Abstract

Thesis title The poetic universe of Giuseppe Conte Abstract The main object of our research is the poetic work of Giuseppe Conte. His entire poetic production, although differentiated, reveals a continuity in stylistic research and philosophy of existence. Conte's poetry collections are an attempt to express in artistic form his personal vision of literature, the world, society, man and different cultures. Our study explores a poetics that expresses Conte's relationship with poets and writers of the past and present. For Conte, poetry is necessary and fundamental to contemporary civilisation, it is an essential nourishment of the human imagination and soul, it must be understood as fundamental to the aesthetic, moral and economic rebirth of the world. In our study, we first analyse Conte's distance from the neo-avant-garde: he has always considered himself an «outsider» in relation to the artistic and literary movements of the 20th and 21st centuries. His conception of myth and nature as an antidote to the materialism of Western society led him to be one of the founders of «Mythomodernism». We ask why the poet was interested in lost non-European civilizations and examine his reinterpretation of classical myths. We study the role that Conte attributes to poetry in bringing together Western and Eastern cultures; we also analyse the influence of Ligurian «culture» and landscape on Conte.

Titre L'univers poétique de Giuseppe Conte Résumé L'objet principal de notre recherche est l'œuvre poétique de Giuseppe Conte. Toute sa production poétique, bien que différenciée, révèle une continuité dans la recherche stylistique et la philosophie de l'existence. Les recueils de poésie de Conte sont une tentative d'exprimer sous forme artistique sa vision personnelle de la littérature, du monde, de la société, de l'homme et des différentes cultures. Notre étude explore une poétique qui exprime la relation de Conte avec les poètes et les écrivains du passé et du présent. Pour Conte, la poésie est nécessaire et fondamentale pour la civilisation contemporaine, elle est un aliment essentiel de l'imagination et de l'âme humaine, elle doit être comprise comme fondamentale pour la renaissance esthétique, morale et économique du monde. Dans notre étude, nous analysons d'abord l'éloignement de Conte de la néo-avant-garde: il s'est toujours considéré comme un «étranger» par rapport aux mouvements artistiques et littéraires des XXe et XXIe siècles. Sa conception du mythe et de la nature comme antidote au matérialisme de la société occidentale l'a conduit à être l'un des fondateurs du «Mythomodernisme». Nous nous interrogeons sur les raisons qui ont poussé le poète à s'intéresser aux civilisations non-européennes disparues et examinons sa réinterprétation des mythes classiques. Nous étudions le rôle que Conte attribue à la poésie dans le rapprochement entre les cultures occidentale et orientale; nous analysons également l'influence de la «culture» et du paysage ligurien sur Conte. Enfin, nous nous concentrons sur les valeurs du langage, en particulier la valeur expressive de la métaphore (sur laquelle Conte a écrit des essais fondamentaux), sur la forme poétique et l'analyse du langage. Les techniques utilisées par Conte permettent à la poésie de devenir le porteur d'une nouvelle énergie et d'une œuvre de civilisation renouvelée.
