DISSERTATION
"From Charles S. Peirce to Contemporary Poetry: a Semiotic Analysis."
Director: Prof. Cesare Gagliardi.
The dissertation examines American contemporary poetry, limited to the study of two poems by two main poets, Susan Howe and John Ashbery, filtered through Charles S. Peirce’s thought. The analysis of the poetic work is supported by direct quotations by literary critics to strengthen the leading direction of the writing that wants Peirce at the “hidden” core through semiotics. My underlying intention is to introduce the semiotician as the only philosopher-logician-linguist at the height of shaping a serious, committed, and new speculative cognitive thought to contextualize knowledge.
