Abstract

Primo Levi's Se questo è un uomo (If This is a Man) and I sommersi e i salvati (The Drowned and the Saved) present complex relations to mythological elements, which are often filtered through Dante's Divine Comedy and are inserted as key components into the autobiographical narration, thus giving it a mythological dimension. The article proposes the triangular structure Levi-Dante-Ulysses as a basis for analysing the Jewish deportees' journey towards Auschwitz as a journey towards the mythological other world.
