In the present article, the attention is focused on autorepresentational image that can be derived from Cristina Campo’s literary language, while analyzing at the same time its genesis, given finalities and reception. It is what can be deduced in filigrain from essayistic-critical writings in The Unforgivable Ones (Gli imperdonabili) and Under a False Name (Sotto falso nome), as well as from collections of letters and illuminating lyrical motifs, based on which it will be demonstrated that analogous themes are associated to various literary genres on grounds of principle of inter-genre contamination. By illustrating the founding postulates of autopoetic reflections, the intention is to ulteriorly determine their collocation within the frame of cultural history. To veiled autobiographism contributes pseudonymical practice, as well as subsequent stylistic devices, through which modernistic aspects are highlighted. The autobiographical narration in The Golden Walnut (La noce d’oro), short story-fairy tale of aesthetic timbre frequently infused with figural tropism, comprises a literary mixture of rievocation and mythography, relying on anthropological premises that are speculatively articulated.
