The aim of this essay is to propose a possible oblique reading of the first Italian translation of Benito Cereno. The essay argues that, in parallel with Melville's critical method, the reader would have been positioned to inter­pret Melville's tale as a critique of the Italian society which permitted the fas­cist ascent to power. This argument is strengthened by the allusions scattered by Pavese in his translation and intro­duction of the work. Finally, a similar reading of the text is also analysed in regards to the Italian publishing trends of the Thirties and of Pavese's own work.

Abstract

The aim of this essay is to propose a possible oblique reading of the first Italian translation of Benito Cereno. The essay argues that, in parallel with Melville's critical method, the reader would have been positioned to inter­pret Melville's tale as a critique of the Italian society which permitted the fas­cist ascent to power. This argument is strengthened by the allusions scattered by Pavese in his translation and intro­duction of the work. Finally, a similar reading of the text is also analysed in regards to the Italian publishing trends of the Thirties and of Pavese's own work.
