In this paper, the author tackles the interplay between national pedagogy and the social construction of masculinity in a wide range of texts of the Italian literature of the First World War. By exploring how masculine patterns were worked out and negotiated in literary texts, the paper aims to discuss two main issues: 1. whether this ample textual corpus is a symptom of the crisis of early-twentieth-century masculine identity at large or simply the ground of virile fascist rhetoric; 2. whether, by rethinking, reimagining and retelling masculinity, such a corpus boosts the national pedagogy or, rather, undermines its tenets.

Abstract

In this paper, the author tackles the interplay between national pedagogy and the social construction of masculinity in a wide range of texts of the Italian literature of the First World War. By exploring how masculine patterns were worked out and negotiated in literary texts, the paper aims to discuss two main issues: 1. whether this ample textual corpus is a symptom of the crisis of early-twentieth-century masculine identity at large or simply the ground of virile fascist rhetoric; 2. whether, by rethinking, reimagining and retelling masculinity, such a corpus boosts the national pedagogy or, rather, undermines its tenets.
