Una lettura nuova del più noto dramma eliotiano. Marchesi rivela come Eliot attribuisca al Male – i quattro Tentatori e i quattro Cavalieri – una potenzialità argomentativa superiore, basata sulla retorica, sull’intertestualità e, infine, su metodi terapeutici pre-freudiani. L’aderenza al testo dimostra come il tema liturgico e i contenuti religiosi siano stati ampiamente sopravvalutati. “Assassinio nella cattedrale” è riportato alla sua natura originaria: un dramma essenzialmente modernista, radicato nel contesto del dramma sperimentale europeo.
