THE WRITING OF ANNA MARIA ORTESE, EXEMPLIFIED IN ONE STORY
In “The Submerged Continent” Ortese writes that “reason is only the emergent part … of the human intellect,” which leads her to want to “listen to the sad and yet gentle voice of dreams … dreams which come from outside, from the part of ourselves we have lost … [etc.]” (pp. 20-21).
