Description

This book contests the position of 'insularity' frequently ascribed to Carlo Emilio Gadda and Samuel Beckett by critical consensus, situating these two contemporary authors at the heart of the debate of late European modernism, and rethinks some of Gadda's plurilingual and macaronic features.
