Includes bibliographical references. ; FROM BACK COVER: This volume brings together essays written by members of the Department of Italian at University College London, one of the livliest centres of Italian studies in the UK. While the essays treat many different areas and aspects of the Italian cultural tradition (literature, film, art, linguistics, poetics, bibliography, and history) , they nevertheless share a methodoligical approach which gives the volume a strong sense of unity. This approach responds to the awareness of the need, when studying an object, to examine also the intellectual workings involved. The result is a double perspective or critical filter which captures the process whereby the mind reflects on its own activities: it is this thread which gives the volume its title: Reflexivity. ; IL Portico Sezione Materiali Letterari; Vol. 119; 226 pages
