Online First

LEA publishes Online First Articles. This feature allows final revision articles to be hosted online prior to their inclusion in a final print and online journal issue. 

The only difference between Online First and issue publication will be the citation details and the addition of the Online First publication date to the second version.

Each OnlineFirst article has a unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI). This should be included in all citations. DOIs provide a persistent, permanent way to identify manuscripts published in the online environment, even after they are assigned to the issue. Information such as volume, issue, and page numbers are not allocated to OnlineFirst articles (as that information is not known until the issue is completed), therefore these manuscripts should be cited as follows: Rossi, A. Prepublished Month, Year, Article title. LEA - Lingue e Letterature d'Oriente e d'Occidente. DOI: 10.13128/LEA-1824-484x-012345.

Paolo Simonetti, “Silence is the Only Voice”: Le Lettere a Hawthorne di Herman Melville e la scoperta di una nuova voce femminile

Abstract

The letters Herman Melville wrote to Nathaniel Hawthorne between January 1851 and December 1852 help us reconstruct the beginning of a new stage in his writing: after the semi-autobiographical sea-novels of adventures, Melville’s imagination switched to a different narrative structure, closer to the sentimental domestic settings of Hawthorne’s romances and more attentive to female characters. The influence Hawthorne and his wife Sophia Peabody had on Melville’s imagination during the period they corresponded, as well as the failed collaboration between the two writers on the “Agatha Letters”, brought Melville to the discovery of a new feminine voice and an original female character – the resilient woman – that will appear more frequently in the following part of his literary production.

Michela Landi, Un incontro mancato? Baudelaire e Wagner

Abstract

The current contribution aims to disclose to the Italian readers some relevant aspects of a forthcoming volume entitled: Baudelaire et Wagner. In spite of an ideological purpose prevailing in the 18th Century – fraternity and correspondence between arts –, a secret rivalry between arts and artists themselves is assumed. This essay mainly focuses on the relationship between Baudelaire and Wagner in order to discuss, on the basis of the intertextuality and discourse analysis of Baudelaire’s Richard Wagner et Tannhäuser à Paris, its traditional interpretation: under cover of irony, the panegyric hides in fact, a pamphlet.

KeywordsBaudelaire; mimetism; rivalry; Tannhäuser; Wagner
