In a year marked by various cultural events dedicated to the memory of Marilyn on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of her death, re-reading the text by Anne Carson, Norma Jeane Baker of Troy (published in Italian translation by Crocetti in 2021), is an opportunity to return to reflect on the multiple transmedia refractions of the myth of the brightest star in Hollywood. This contribution, dwelling on the semantic potential that is released by Norma Jeane’s approach to the protagonist of Euripide’s tragedy, on which Carson’s play is based, highlights the persistence of the motif of the double and its phantasmic implications present in the reception of the star, in literature as in photography.

Abstract

In a year marked by various cultural events dedicated to the memory of Marilyn on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of her death, re-reading the text by Anne Carson, Norma Jeane Baker of Troy (published in Italian translation by Crocetti in 2021), is an opportunity to return to reflect on the multiple transmedia refractions of the myth of the brightest star in Hollywood. This contribution, dwelling on the semantic potential that is released by Norma Jeane’s approach to the protagonist of Euripide’s tragedy, on which Carson’s play is based, highlights the persistence of the motif of the double and its phantasmic implications present in the reception of the star, in literature as in photography.
