Quand l'écriture graphique de Stefano Benni rencontre le dessin

Abstract : Stefano Benni's writing has always been characterized by its deliberate graphic bias. He invented new languages, created burlesque, cartoonlike worlds in which animated images are paramount and support and give life to the narrative storyline but also display a politically committed vision of existence. Also, some of his writings come with illustrations and front covers invariably show original drawings. This paper focuses on the graphic novels of the Bologna based writer to provide with an understanding of what distinguishes them from those of his writings which are graphic by nature. What is suggested is that Benni's stance as a committed writer is more discreet in the former than in the latter.
