Política e Literatura: Antonio Gramsci e a crítica italiana, São Paulo: Alameda, 2014
The book discusses the relationship between politics and literature in the prison writings of Antonio Gramsci, especially the Prison Notebooks 21 and 23. For this, departs from the restoration method proposed by the critical edition of the Prison Notebooks edited by Valentino Gerratana (1975). Then foucuses in two categories, literary criticism and national-popular literature. The general hypothesis, or the starting point, of the book is that the relationship between literature and politics was part of a broader effort by Gramsci to survive the conditions of life in prison and to seek the development of the philosophy of praxis. With regard to literary criticism, it tries to establish a possible translation of the prison notes on the construction of the organic and modern intellectual, represented at the "return to De Sanctis", as a model of literary critic opposed to the figure of Benedetto Croce. Here, the contradiction between the literary and the political activities is taken as a starting point for understanding the birth of the modern intellectual as "political + expert". The book discusses also the national-popular moment in Gramsci, as a central point for the study of modern lifestyle and representative update on politics and literature in the historical experience of the formation of national states. The study of national-popular Italian literature is considered, in turn, in its fragility, the fragility of the Italian unification.
