Esercizi di esegesi montaliana: l’«eternità d’istante» e lo specchio
The article is a commentary of Montale’s poem La bufera. The poem is, by virtue of its title and position, fundamental for the understanding of the section Finisterre and the collection La bufera e altro. It also probably represents, taken on its own, one of the best achievements of Montale’s poetry. Therefore, analysing La bufera is to take one step further in the comprehension of Montale’s poetic world. The article focuses on the relation between the I and you of the poetic enonciation, the centrality of the «eternità d’istante» in determining the nature of that relation, and the tension between an oppressive physical chaos and the obstinate quest of a metaphysical mirror that be the hope of a persistent meeting with oneself and the other.
