Scrivere l’autobiografia di un altro. Intervista a Robert Harris, autore del romanzo «Il Ghostwriter»
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The meeting-interview with Robert Harris, English novelist, author of a number of best sellers many of which have been transposed into successful films, offers the occasion to reflect on the singular profession of ghostwriter, that is to say the author of on-commission biographies of famous personages. Starting from the analysis of the genesis of the author’s last novel, whose protagonist is a ghost writer, the essay analyzes the writing techniques used in the attempt to build a biography through a third party, emphasizing the positive features of the object, thanks to rhetorical artifices of many kinds. The careful analysis of the novel theme and of its references (real persons and events) gives the opportunity to consider the risks and consequences of a mediatized society. It also retraces the professional path of Harris, who was the author of his novel and now is also involved in the adaptation of this novel for the screen.
