Narrazione dell’abbandono tra letteratura e cinema
This paper aims at offering a comparative analysis of the narrator in the novel I giorni dell’abbandono (2002) by the Italian writer Elena Ferrante, and the narrator in the cinematographic version of the same work I giorni dell’abbandono (2005), directed by Roberto Faenza. The paper focuses on some narrative properties that emerge in Elena Ferrante’s novel and compares the literary narrator to the cinematographic narrator in Roberto Faenza’s movie. Furthermore, the paper discusses different narrative strategies as used in these two different media, literary text and cinematographic work.
