The constant search for oneself

Main Article Content

Luigi Surdich


What Tabucchi's novels convey, apart from content and plot, is a feeling of bewilderment, of unease and of acute disquiet which is generated by the ineluctable and obsessive questions which our modern condition imposes: emptiness, fear, death. There is no answer which is entrusted to a spokesperson for, or interpreter of, this angst. The structure – a formal archetype which itself becomes the theme of the writing – is itself the message.
