报告题目: Italo Calvino's Invisible Formulae(意大利当代作家)伊塔洛·卡尔维诺的隐形公式

报告内容:Italian writer Italo Calvino (1923-1985) left his mark on literary criticism with his final published manuscript, "Six Memos to the Next Millennium." The book is a series of lectures which Calvino had been preparing to deliver at Harvard University; unfortunately, he only completed five of the planned lectures before he died of a cerebral hemorrhage at 61. The five memos describe the essential qualities of great literature which Calvino urged future generations to consider striving towards or expanding upon. The five memosare as follows: Lightness (felicity, humor, and airiness); Quickness (narrative time, syntony and focalization); Exactitude (design, precise language, icastico); Visibility (imagination and empathy); and Multiplicity (worldliness, ambition, world-building). The sixth memo was to be on Consistency, which Calvino left unfinished. My research has been involved in exploring these five qualities and locating them in modern literature. As Calvino provides classic examples to illustrate these memos, I too, in this lecture, will provide examples of from Calvinos own work, primarily his postmodernist experimental novel, Invisible Cities.
