Abstract
  • This dissertation argues that, in order to foster a reflection on the role of the intellectual in Italian society, the narrative device of characterization has been employed in connection with a historical perspective on men of letters and their social function. This study examines the detective novels of such authors as Leonardo Sciascia, Giuseppe Pontiggia, Umberto Eco, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Carlo Lucarelli, Paolo Roversi and Roberto Saviano.
