Lawrence constructed his image of Sardinia to fit his own theories on European civilization in the aftermath of World War One. Foxell’s Sardinia Without Lawrence (2005) purposely deconstructs the unity of the celebrated Sea and Sardinia by exposing the aporias of Lawrentian discourse, fragments of a Victorian discourse on otherness, and by juxtaposing Lawrence’s quotations, his metatextual commentaries and a detailed description of the island. Foxell’s fascinating report is not only born out of another text, but by ‘translating’ and rewriting its hypotext frees Sardinia from ideological oriented past narratives. Key words – Sea and Sardinia; Sardinia Without Lawrence; intertextuality

L'articolo propone una lettura di Sardinia without Lawrence di Nigel Foxell come un dialogo costante con il suo ipotesto Sea and Sardinia, con esiti a volte mimetici, a volte metatestuali ed ironici

Abstract

L'articolo propone una lettura di Sardinia without Lawrence di Nigel Foxell come un dialogo costante con il suo ipotesto Sea and Sardinia, con esiti a volte mimetici, a volte metatestuali ed ironici
Lawrence constructed his image of Sardinia to fit his own theories on European civilization in the aftermath of World War One. Foxell’s Sardinia Without Lawrence (2005) purposely deconstructs the unity of the celebrated Sea and Sardinia by exposing the aporias of Lawrentian discourse, fragments of a Victorian discourse on otherness, and by juxtaposing Lawrence’s quotations, his metatextual commentaries and a detailed description of the island. Foxell’s fascinating report is not only born out of another text, but by ‘translating’ and rewriting its hypotext frees Sardinia from ideological oriented past narratives. Key words – Sea and Sardinia; Sardinia Without Lawrence; intertextuality
Sea and Sardinia, intertestualità, Lawrence, Foxell, Sardinia Without Lawrence, Intertextuality
