Show Summary Details


This chapter presents a close reading of Mario Mieli's Elementi di critica omosessuale (Elements of homosexual criticism). The book not only addresses some of Pasolini's central concerns, but also makes use of similar philosophical sources, primarily Norman O. Brown. Mieli, whose book appeared in 1977, only two years after Pasolini's death, comments on the significance of his murder and offers a new look at the poet's persona, that is, the public image he molded according to the ideological parameters expressed by his works.

Keywords: Pier Paolo Pasolini; poet; Norman O. Brown; Mario Mieli; murder; public image
