Traducendo e rifacendo Orazio. Percorsi oraziani nella scrittura di Fortini

Abstract : The article analyses the different ways in which Fortini deals with Horace’s poems. Firstly, the analysis focuses on Fortini’s essays and his distinction between «translation» and «rewriting». In his translations, a strong respect for the semantic content emerges. Nevertheless, Fortini innovates syntactic forms to preserve his own style. In his rewritings, Two modes are identified: a thematic-textual influence in his first works (Fortini reworks Horace’s themes and quotes) and a linguistic-formal influence since the 1970s (Fortini’s reworks Horace’s formal models with new contents). In conclusion, the essay affirms that Fortini’s translations can be placed on the thematic-textual axis. On the contrary, his most experimental rewriting (a homophonic translation) coincides with a paroxysmal exasperation of the linguistic-formal axis.
