Critique in writing: visionary narrative and critique of modernity (1972-1975)
The laboratory that is Petrolio fueled everything Pasolini wrote in the 70s. All those texts can be considered almost as a unique book (with its expression as a film, Salò) which goes back over the same subjects, the same obsessions, developing forms of narration and critique influenced by different registers.
Philology as a mask. Pasolini, literary critic
Pier Paolo Pasolini greatly contributed to the field of philology, this field also has a particular importance in his literary works. In uncompleted texts, but especially in Petrolio, Pasolini sets an original apparatus: the "philological meta-novel". Thanks to this literary fiction, he fakes the reconstruction of a fragmentary text by an imaginary philologist who is a mask for a Pasolini-narrator.
