Författare: Michela Vanon Alliata.

L’introduzione del soprannaturale nel discorso letterario, unitamente all’enfasi sulla follia, sulle visioni e sulle allucinazioni, e non escludendo motivi estremi come sadismo e bestialità, dimostra come il gotico nel corso della metà e del tardo xix secolo fosse ancora una potente risorsa per presentare un’ampia gamma di ansie psicologiche e culturali, forse in qualche misura una reazione al positivismo evolutivo vittoriano, la fiducia ottimistica dell’epoca nella scienza e l’inevitabilità del progresso. Il titolo del libro, che include alcuni maestri del gotico e del fantastico, Bram Stoker, R.L. Stevenson, Henry James, Vernon Lee e Arthur Conan Doyle, richiama il concetto chiave di persecuzione e ossessione, ed è tratto da un breve scritto di Nathaniel Hawthorne. Nello sketch The Haunted Mind, con metafore e simboli desunti dall’immaginario gotico e un linguaggio che sembra anticipare le conquiste della ricerca freudiana, Hawthorne individuava nell’inconscio, nei recessi più bui della psiche l’origine dell’attività creativa. Così nel 1835, nel Nuovo Mondo, nel “paese della luce e dell’affermazione”, per citare le celebri parole del critico americano Leslie Fiedler, il gotico si era già affermato come “una letteratura del grottesco e delle tenebre”, un genere letterario capace di esprimere la paura, la disperazione e la follia.

Sometimes known as visual writing, the typographical variation corresponds directly, at any given narratological point in time, to the physical space of the events in the fictional world as well as the physical space of the page and the reader. Rather than engage those textual faculties of the mind remediating the pictorial or those visual faculties remediating language, the signiconic simultaneously engages both in order to lessen the significance of both and therefore achieve a third perception no longer dependent on sign and image for remediating a world in which the mind plays no part. Since the release of The Familiar, Volume 1, Danielewski has been doing small tours for the release of each volume and releasing merchandise related to House of Leaves and The Familiar on his website. Polish avant-garde film director, and Priscilla Decatur Machold. In 1985 Danielewski spent time in France visiting his brother who at the time was living on Rue des Belles Feuilles.

There was a manual typewriter that he eventually found himself pounding away on. It was there that he remembers first enjoying the actual process of writing. In 1988 Danielewski graduated with a degree in English Literature from Yale, where he studied under John Hollander, Stuart Moulthrop, and John Guillory. Danielewski has also been an avid cat lover throughout his life.

They show up in a myriad of ways throughout his works and happen to be a main topic in his most recent book series The Familiar. My father was head of the USC School of Theater. I was living in New York. Then I got the phone call.

The ‘Mark your father is dying’ phone call. I got on a Greyhound bus and headed west. I remember using a fountain pen. House of Leaves was a 10-year project, and the task of finding a publisher for it was almost as daunting as the book was for its first readers.

Though the first edition hardbacks, which featured special signed inserts, were initially released on February 29, 2000, Pantheon released the hardback and paperback editions simultaneously on March 7, 2000. Joe and Stephen were having another typical conversation: hashing out what novel could be considered the Moby-Dick of horror. That one with all the footnotes, they argued — no, not that one, the other one: Mark Danielewski’s House of Leaves’. House of Leaves has since been translated into numerous languages, including Dutch, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Polish, Serbian, Spanish and Greek.

It continues to be taught in universities in the United States and abroad. On June 18, 2018, Danielewski released a TV pilot script for the novel in the House of Leaves book club on Facebook. In 2000, Danielewski toured with his sister, Poe, across America at Borders Books and Music locations to promote his book in conjunction with Poe’s album Haunted, which has many elements of House of Leaves. He is also a fan of Biffy Clyro, as the band discovered when Danielewski attended one of their shows after they borrowed the title of his novel Only Revolutions for their own album. Thanks to family and an old friend, I finally finished it or at least managed to come up with this threadbare recording. Danielewski worked on two projects in tandem: his second novel Only Revolutions and his novella The Fifty Year Sword.
