A Study on Some Poems by Licio Gelli

Carlo Artemi



This article is an analysis of some poems by Licio Gelli. Gelli has been an Italian poet but overall one of the most important and discussed protagonist of the most obscure events in Italian chronicle of the last dozen years. Author has read several poems by Gelli analyzing overall the recurrence of certain terms besides the topics of poems and the main features of language used. It’s been tried to understand the psychology of poet and to find eventual links between his poetics and his public life. Results, also if preliminary, have been interesting and showing a tuning between certain features of public Gelli, as emerged by inquires, and his poetics. There are however some not obvious aspect of Gelli psychology emerging from this analysis. And these results could make light on aspects of Gelli political action.
