L'analisi Linguistica e Letteraria - Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 15, 2017

We propose to devote a thematic section of Issue 2/2018 of the Journal "L'Analisi linguistica e letteraria" (www.analisilinguisticaeletteraria.eu) to expressions of creative writing inspired by monuments. Our aim is to understand how and why diverse re/constructions of their specific genesis, descriptions of architectural features, explanations of symbolism, histories of mentors, sponsors and artists generate over/interpretations in the form of essays, short stories, historical novels and poems. Each article will investigate the ways in which writers, while speculating on and verbally reconstructing a monument, can instil aesthetic and ideological appreciations.
