Lui, lei e l’altra: Trasfigurazione di sibilla Aleramo e l’identità femminile

  • A Meda


Written in 1912, Trasfigurazione (‘Transfiguration’), a short story in the form of an open letter to her lover’s wife, is a pivotal work in that it illustrates a crucial moment in Aleramo’s development both as a woman and as a writer.
The themes of feminine identity and love which Aleramo explores in the short story are here discussed in the light of other related works such as Dialogo con Psiche, Lettere d’amore a Lina, Lettere Aleramo-Papini and others, where these topics are further developed and linked to the fundamental role of art for Aleramo, i.e., to interpret and reveal life’s deepest meaning.
