Ineptitude as cultural senility in Italo Svevo's second novel

Abstract
This essay analyzes the phenomenology of the emotionally inept character presented in Senilità through the tools that philology makes available for the study of Svevo’s corpus. The aim is to highlight how Svevo’s analysis of the theme of love has precise implications in the context of the author’s literary theory, because the study of the phenomenology of love seen in this novel addresses not so much the specific story played out by the subject, but rather his mind-set when reacting to events and interacting with reality. As a result, love, chosen as the theme of the novel, is a single case study embodying a more complex problem
