Carlo Dossi's Publishing Oddities

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Carlo Dossi; Preface; Paratext; Publisher; Authorship.

Carlo Dossi's books stand out due to their original solutions in language and narrative structures. Among the most unusual features are such elements as prefaces, epigraphs, inscriptions, covers, notes, and warnings to the readers. This paratextual overgrowth acts as a bait to catch the interest of qualified readers and belies the conviction that publishers must comply to their authors' instructions.
