This study argues the imaginary dialogue in Pasolini's La Divina Mimesis (1963-65), between two historical versions of the author and on the ground of Dante's Comedy , is a typical and recurrent structure in the work. From the civic poetry of the 1950's and 1960's, to the plays Calderón and Pilade , to the pastiches of Trasumanar e organizzar , the poet's recourse to various forms of polyphonic discourse and address, like his protean play with genres and myths and his polemical attack on the "institutions", aids in his continuous paraphrase of the compelling issues of his day.
"Peterson's knowledge of twentieth-century poetry and his ability to synthesize the authorial intertext that Pasolini drew from repeatedly and often ironically is clearly the strength of this book." (Colleen Marie Ryan, Rivista di Studi Italiani)
"...'The Paraphrase of an Imaginary Dialogue', winner of the 1990 Northeast Modern Language Association Foreign Language Award, provides ample evidence of Peterson's profound understanding of and remarkable sensitivity for both Pier Paolo Pasolini and the literary traditions Pasolini draws from." (Myriam Swennen Ruthenberg, Forum Italicum)
