AARHUS UNIVERSITET Arven fra Pasolini On the left, just past the entrance, there was an empty flowerbed. I went over to that square of earth, in the middle of which were two small, white marble slabs. I saw his tomb. ’Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975). I feel less alone. I began to mumble my rage, fists clenched so tight that my fingernails pierced my palms. I began to articulate my own “I know,” the “I know” of my day. (Roberto Saviano: Gomorra 2006)
AARHUS UNIVERSITET I know[ ….] I know […] I know […] I know. But I do not have the proof. I don’t even have clues. I know because I am a writer and an intellectual who tries to follow what goes on, to imagine what is known and what is kept quiet, who pieces together the disorganised fragments of a whole and coherent political picture, who restores logic where arbitrariness, mystery and madness seem to prevail (Pasolini, Che cos’è questo golpe 1974 my translation). I know and I can prove it. I know how economies originate and where they get their odour. The odour of success and victory. I know what sweats of profit. I know […] The proofs are irrefutable because they are partial, recorded with my eyes, recounted with words, and tempered with emotions […]. I see, hear, look, talk, and in this way I testify, […]. I know and I can prove it. And so I tell. About these truths. (Saviano Gomorra 2006).
AARHUS UNIVERSITET Unidentified narrative objects (UNO): Tekster der ikke falder under nogen foruddefineret litterær genre; der udvider grænserne for det litterær og producerer 'forstyrrende' effekter med det formål at få os reagere voldsomt på et emne ved hjælp af fiktive/litterære tricks. Roberto Saviano
