Abstract

According to Elsa Morante, what is the role of writers, of literature and more gener-ally of art in the vision that emerges from the text of the conference, held in 1965, entitledPro o contro la bomba atomica?Starting from the debate of those years on issues of political ur-gency, Morante reflects on the role of the writer, or poet, in the face of social changes, ex-pressing a problematic and not without contradiction vision that is affected by the intellectual climate of that historical period. The atomic bomb becomes for her an occasion of expression, as well as a metaphor, of an unease that constantly oscillates between tendencies to surrender and a fighting and tenacious spirit. This essay is therefore positioned as a watershed between a before, in which trust in the real is still visible, and an after increasingly hallucinated and apocalyptic
