Confessional writing from Sylvia Plath to St. Augustine
I received my MA in Philosophy from La Sapienza University, Rome. My doctoral research focuses on the literary genre of confession, questioning Sylvia Plath’s poetry and its cold-war context through Augustine’s Confessions. I also examine the development of other confessional forms (spiritual, religious, judiciary, psychotherapeutic) to give account of some mid-century modernist reconfigurations of the relation between the confessional self, writing and God.
My work is funded by a Queen Mary Postgraduate Research Studentship.
