  • Gipi’s Graphic Chronotopes: Space-Time in Graphic Novels

    • Authors: Andrea Bernardelli
      Abstract: Bachtin’s notion of chronotope certainly is related to the literary realm, but is it possible to ‘translate’ it into the genre of graphic novel' The term ‘graphic novel’ already outlines a strict connection between literature and comics. Both novel and graphic novels are structured around a complex narration, where each element reveals to be connected to each other and where the chronotope functions as a sort of narrative ‘glue’. However, graphic novels are strongly structured around the graphic element, and this is the reason why formal categories are very important in the definition of the chronotope in comics. We could start from the following question: which formal devices are used in order to create a space-time effect in comics' Starting from McCloud’s ideas and re-reading them through the Bachtinian literary chronotope, we will try to answer this question utilizing as major case-study Gipi’s works.

  • Last Stop: This Town. Sameness, Suburbs and Spectrality in Daniel
           Clowes's Ghost World

    • Authors: Giorgio Busi Rizzi
      Abstract: Ghost World (1997) is a graphic novel by Daniel Clowes. Two teenage girls, having ended high school, confront with the passage to adult life in a spectral American suburbia scattered with non-places: diners, shopping malls, vinyl and comic stores. From their own bedrooms, the two spend their time cynically commenting the fatuity of US pop culture, trapped between a haunting past and an uncertain future. This contribution intends to discuss space in Ghost World from three main perspectives, concerning the material book, the visual level (page layout, framing, colors) and the diegetical one (investigating spaces inside the story).

  • The afterworld space in the "Poem strip" (1969) by Dino Buzzati

    • Authors: Roberta Coglitore
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is the analysis of the afterworld space in Dino Buzzati's Poem Strip (1969), a graphic novel ante-litteram. Buzzati rewrites, in an ultramodern and secular way, both the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, restoring the centrality to the power of music, and the myth of the descent into hell, an absolute topos of Italian literature, starting from Dante's allegorical representation of the christian afterworld. Buzzati invents a visual representation of the afterworld space focussing on two elements: the continuity / discontinuity between the two worlds, nominally different, and the thresholds that allow the passage from one world to the other. The recurrent theme of Poem Strip is therefore the search for this threshold that would allow us to distinguish between the two worlds, but at the same time dissolves as soon as we try to overcome it. This paper analyzes, in particular, the narrative frame of Buzzati’s Poem Strip, to identify that door of hell that gives access to the underworld space and which marks the impossible exit for the souls who live there eternally. Like in all fantastic stories by Buzzati, the descent into hell is framed by a prologue and a conclusion set in imaginary and impossible spaces, but at the same time too realistic, common, urban.

  • The Nested Spaces of Graphic Narrative

    • Authors: Paul Fisher Davies
      Abstract: The topology of graphic narrative has commonly been conceived of as ‘sequential’ (see Eisner 2008; McCloud 1993) – that is to say, a paratactic arrangement of bordered images to be read in a linear sequence, even when the gridded layout of these images is taken into consideration (as in Groensteen 2009). This sequential organization of space, baked into the epithet ‘sequential art’, is in danger of becoming an orthodoxy.This article considers the ways in which nested spaces – images inside images and worlds within worlds – are essential to graphic narrative, and will argue for a consideration of comics’ hypotactic structure, the layered embedding of the spaces they construct. Comics from the start represent a space within a space: within the ‘discourse space’ of the world in which creators communicate with readers, the flat plane of the page represents a ‘phatic space’ of contact on which the text-worlds of the creator are inscribed. Within that space appear yet further spaces, inscribed in speech balloons, thought balloons, and other abstract enclosures. The article uses Paul Werth’s Text World Theory (expanded and made available after Werth’s death in Gavins 2007) within a framework derived from the functional linguistics of Michael Halliday (previously adapted to multimodal media texts and art by theorists such as Kress and van Leeuwen 2006; O’Toole 2010) to account for the ways in which comics, like language, recursively construct and project spaces in which their narrative takes place. The artice characterises the nature of world-building in graphic narrative, and how the ways in which stories are narrated in this form oblige the creator to build and rebuild the worlds of the story (despite the options available to evade this commitment). The article presents ideas emerging from the development of a functional framework for describing graphic narrative which systematically adapts Halliday’s social semiotics (see Halliday 1978; Halliday and Matthiessen 2004) to account for comics, fumetti and bande dessinée.

  • From the space of the frame to the space of the intimate: route of a child
           of the destape in Historias del barrio de Beltrán y Seguí

    • Authors: Thomas Faye
      Abstract: The present contribution aims to approach the notions of spaces, places and boundaries, in various degrees: at first, from a structural point of view by evoking the narratively structuring value of the notion of space in the construction of the autobiography when the voice of the author builds itself on a topographic wandering; then, from a semiotic point of view by the examination of the contributions of the characteristic multimodality of the text/image and the characteristic of the iconotextual language of the graphic novel, capable of mixing two dimensions of the space: on the one hand, this autobiographical place, at the same time closed and open because it is island, and on the other hand, the complex place built by the arthrological route through the page, which conveys a subject playing with the notion of frame: that of the representation and that within which builds himself the individual.

  • 'A king of infinite space’: Shakespearean Spaces in Theatre and
           Comics

    • Authors: Eleonora Fois
      Abstract: As one of the pillars of the Western canon, Shakespeare has been a source of inspiration for many forms of popular culture: comics make no exception, having often used Shakespearean plays as a base for adaptations whose degree of fidelity to the source text may vary considerably (Kill Shakespeare is a recent example).The trans-medial operation which turns Shakespeare’s plays into comics is complicated by the form of the plays themselves, by the theatrical tradition embedded in and shaping the source text:  the textual and spatial norms of comics are certainly challenged by the three-dimensionality of the theatrical performance and by the use of dramatic words, essential to evoke the spaces of the plot but excessively abundant for a comic balloon.Space, however, can also play an important role in shaping a comic narrative which interprets Shakespeare’s plays in innovative ways, devising unexpected approaches to the target medium. Analyzing versions from Classics Illustrated, Topolino, as well as Zarate’s and DeLuca’s adaptations of Shakespearean plays, this contribution aims at disclosing the way comics combine the space of the page and the space of the stage, embracing the theatrical nature of Shakespeare’s plays without forgetting the requirement of the target medium.

  • Manifest Destiny: the American West as a Map of the Unconscious

    • Authors: Marco Petrelli
      Abstract: The aim of this essay is to analyze the role of space and the different layers of significance associated to it in the Image Comics series Manifest Destiny. The American frontier epic still stand as one of the vastest and most important mythological sources of the US. The frontier space is not of course limited to its geographical dimension – at least from 1893 onwards, when the “closure” of the frontier and the publication of the Turner Thesis made it a polysemic “place” in which psychological, political and social elements met and conflicted with one another. Since the definition of this space was always dependent upon ideological stances, its depiction has always oscillated between the poles of Utopia and Dystopia, blending realism, imagination and ideology. Manifest Destiny is not an exception – its spatial dimension conjugates history and mythology, while also showing the strong influence of popular culture and pulp culture’s horror and weird literature, mainly via its most famous author: H. P. Lovecraft. Through the use of some classical outlooks on the American frontier like Frederick Jackson Turner and Richard Slotkin’s theses, together with some more general contributions on the cultural and narrative meaning of space like Edward Soja’s Thirdspace, Yi-Fu Tuan’s human geography and Ruth D. Weston’s analysis of the gothic space, the essay goes through the “mindscape” projected by Manifest Destiny’s geography and addresses its symbolic and allegorical meaning. As a result, the series’ unconventional take on American mythology and its iconoclastic political agenda are thoroughly deconstructed and examined.

  • Orientarsi tra le nuvole: cartografie, atlanti e pratiche mappanti nel
           racconto a fumetti

    • Authors: Giada Peterle
      Abstract: A partire dalla recente nascita della ‘comic book geography’ (Dittmer 2014), il contributo intende proporre la ‘comic book cartography’ come un’ulteriore linea di ricerca volta ad esplorare le contaminazioni tra fumetto e cartografia.L’approccio transdisciplinare proposto si fonda sull’intersezione tra geografia e analisi geocritica, tra ‘comics studies’ e teoria cartografica post-rappresentazionale. Attraverso una lettura ‘carto-centrata’ di alcuni casi di studio italiani e internazionali, il fumetto viene inteso come una mappa che coinvolge autore e lettore in una vera e propria pratica di orientamento. [ eng]  Orientating among the balloons: maps, atlases and mapping practices in comic booksStarting from the recently emerged field of ‘comic book geography’ (Dittmer 2014), the article proposes ‘comic book cartography’ as a further research line to explore the intersections bewteen comics and cartography.The proposed transdisciplinary approach is based on the encounter between geography and geocriticism, comics studies and post-representational theories in cartography. Through a ‘carto-centred’ reading of both Italian and international case studies, the comic book is interpreted as a map inolving author and reader in an orientation practice.

  • Identità fuori dai canoni: per un’introduzione a Il borghese
           fa il mondo

    • Authors: Niccolò Scaffai
      Abstract: Tra gli episodi del Robinson Crusoe ce n’è uno che rappresenta emblematicamente la capacità del protagonista di collaborare con la Natura, resistendole quanto basta per incanalarne la forza: è la scena in cui Robinson trattiene le provviste per impedire che cadano dalla zattera incagliata, nell’attesa che la marea la liberi facendo risalire il livello dell’acqua.

  • Il borghese va a Parma

    • Authors: Mariolina Bongiovanni Bertini
      Abstract: Vorrei partire da una storiella raccontata da David Foster Wallace e citata da Francesco de Cristofaro nel bel saggio conclusivo del volume di cui discorriamo oggi, Il borghese fa il mondo. Un pesce anziano incrocia due pesciolini più giovani e gli chiede: «Com’è l’acqua oggi'» «L’acqua' – rispondono stupiti i due pesciolini – Che cos’è l’acqua'». A volte quelle che ci sfuggono sono le realtà più onnipresenti, più pervasive, quelle che abbiamo costantemente intorno a noi.

  • Borghesia: divagazioni di ordine critico-didattico

      Abstract: Mi è grato ricordare come la borghesia, e l’esplosione anche da noi di una critica della borghesia letteraria, propiziata negli ultimi anni da Francesco de Cristofaro, siano state il centro propulsore di un insegnamento, da me tenuto nell’anno accademico appena conclusosi, di Letterature moderne comparate; il corso, intitolato “Stati della vita borghese” (con un lieve gioco allusivo sulla disseminazione sovranazionale del tema) si rivolgeva agli studenti parmigiani delle lauree magistrali in Giornalismo e cultura editoriale, e Lettere classiche e moderne.

  • A proposito di Il borghese e Il borghese fa il mondo

    • Authors: Enrica Villari
      Abstract: Questa è una occasione speciale non solo perché si parla qui di due libri non comuni, ma soprattutto perché la relazione tra questi due libri è una relazione fondamentale per ogni studioso di letteratura. È la relazione vitale tra un testo di critica con una forte ipotesi metodologica e teorica da una parte, e una ampia raccolta di saggi messi insieme con l’intento di illustrare innanzitutto come una ipotesi di metodo può aprire nuove prospettive sul modo in cui guardiamo ai testi, magari trovandovi così qualcosa che in precedenti letture non avevamo visto.

  • Nicola Dusi, Contromisure. Trasposizioni e intermedialità

    • Authors: Corrado Confalonieri
      Abstract: «Esiste qualcosa come la rima nei film'»: con questa domanda Wim Wenders ha cominciato l’ultima conferenza (“Poetry in Motion”) dell’edizione 2018 delle Norton Lectures di Harvard, la serie nota in Italia soprattutto per le Lezioni americane (mancate, come si sa) di Calvino. Che una domanda del genere sia anche soltanto concepibile, è una scoperta che io devo a Nicola Dusi.

  • Elena Porciani, Nostra sorella Antigone. Disambientazioni di genere nel
           Novecento e oltre

    • Authors: Sotera Fornaro
      Abstract: Il famoso libro di George Steiner, Le Antigoni, apparso in prima edizione nell’ormai lontano 1984, costituisce senza dubbio una pietra miliare nella storia della fortuna di un tema mitologico e letterario dal Settecento sino al momento in cui fu scritto. La straordinaria erudizione ed alcune proposte interpretative rendono il libro di Steiner un classico: ma questo non può più costituire né una base documentaria e nemmeno esegetica per interrogarsi sui significati che la contemporaneità, nell’arte come nel pensiero, attribuisce sia al mito di Antigone, sia più specificamente alla tragedia di Sofocle.
