Il trionfo della natura sull’uomo, tra Romanticismo e distopie contemporanee
with Franco Nasi (UNIMORE)


In many 19th-century tales, nature is seen as a great mother (or a stepmother). Man can intervene to modify it, even substantially, but then nature returns triumphant and erases, absorbing in its exuberant fecundity, the buildings of man. This way it is also narrated in painting cycles such as The Course of the Empire by Thomas Cole, one of the leading exponents of the Hudson River School, or in the philosophical reflections of the American writers of Transcendentalism, from Emerson to Thoreau. In many recent dystopian films and novels, such as The Road by Cormic Mccarthy, nature, shocked by man’s arrogance, triumphs in any case, but it also becomes an unwelcoming place, which seems to exclude the possibility of human survival. The conference will focus on some ways in which the triumph of nature was understood and interpreted in the works of some American artists and authors between the nineteenth and twenty-first centuries.
