By Furio Jesi

In queste pagine esemplari, Jesi definisce in line with los angeles prima volta il rivoluzionario modello della “macchina mitologica”, riflette sull’esperienza festiva e sulla rivolta come “sospensione del pace storico”, getta una luce sorprendente sul rapporto tra poesia e merce. Intreccia le opere e le vicende esistenziali di Rimbaud, di Rilke, del giovane Lukács e di Cesare Pavese, mentre in un importante inedito ricostruisce il linguaggio mitologico della Storia di Susanna nella Bibbia. Ripercorrendo infine l. a. propria biografia intellettuale – dagli esordi da enfant prodige al magistero di Kerényi e agli ultimi lavori ispirati a Benjamin e a Bachofen – ci guida nelle stanze nascoste del proprio laboratorio. Ancora una volta, ci offre straordinari strumenti critici contro le mitologie dominanti, svelando le strategie che separano gli uomini uguali dai diversi, riconoscendo nel potere una vera e propria “religione della morte” cui si oppone soltanto il pace della festa e dell’insurrezione.
