The emergence of cinema as a predominant form of mass entertainment in the 1910s inspired intellectuals to rethink their definitions of art. The Great Black Spider on Its Knock-Kneed Tripod traces the encounter of Italy?s writers with cinema, and in doing so offers vibrant new perspectives on the country?s early twentieth-century culture.
This comparative study focuses on the immediate responses to this cultural phenomenon of three highly influential intellectuals, each with a competing aesthetic vision ? Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, founder of Futurism; Gabriele D?Annunzio, leader of Italian Decadentism; and Luigi Pirandello, a father of modern European theatre and theorist of humour. Along with demonstrating how the popularization of the feature-length narrative influenced each author?s outlook and theories, Michael Syrimis unravels the extent to which cinema enforced or neutralized the ideological and aesthetic differences between them.
L'autore: Michael Syrimis is an assistant professor in the Department of French and Italian at Tulane University.
