Un'arma da gioco. Furio Jesi mitologo = A weapon to play. Furio Jesi mythologist


This paper intends to investigate the approach to the myth and mythology of Furio Jesi (1941-1980) in the context of the aesthetic and political theories of the twentieth century (Károly Kerény, Thomas Mann and Bertolt Brecht, Walter Benjamin, up to Jean-Luc Nancy and Giorgio Agamben). The comparative and contrastive analysis of these different approaches results in the formulation of a number of premises to the construction of a new inedited methodological framework for the study of mythology, which will be illustrated through the analysis of a specific case study, i.e. Furio Jesi’s works on the relation between literature and myth, and the use of myth in contemporary political cultures.
