Il libro dell’ Inquietudine viene scritto tra gli anni 10 e gli anni 30 del novecento, in un periodo dominato dalle avanguardie, da Dada, dal Simbolismo, dall’astrattismo.

Myron by Gore Vidal was a book which I once threw out in unquenchable contempt. I belong to nothing, I desire nothing, I am nothing except an abstract centre of impersonal sensations, a sentient mirror fallen from the wall but still turned to reflect the diversity of the world.
