Tales of the ‘other’: Joseph Conrad

may sat 29, 2010 - 9.00 p.m.
piazza del Duomo
 admission euro 3.00

All Joseph Conrad’s works are brimming with powerful symbols of otherness. And if it is fair to say that all men are equal when they face the ultimate questions, nonetheless within each single individual - within each ‘other’- there is a boundary beyond which everything is unpredictable, where darkness as thick as that of tropical forests engulfs the light of reason and the demands of civilization. In its innermost essence, therefore, Conrad’s work is a superb gallery of individuals depicted in their uniqueness. The encounter of different ethnicities and cultures may generate wonderful paradoxes, as in the 1897 story entitled Karain, where whites end up behaving like sorcerers whereas the proud Asian pirate - a sort of Sandokan withot a Yanez - suffers from the most Western and bourgeois of all ailments: depression. Readings from J. Conrad by Fabrizio Gifuni will be commented by Emanuele Trevi.
