9780679429906: Petrolio: A novel

An unfinished novel by the murdered Italian author and filmmaker focuses on Carlo, a left-wing Italian Catholic working for the state-controlled oil company, a man who becomes obsessed with satisfying his perverse, insatiable sexual passions.

Although Pier Paolo Pasolini is internationally renowned as a filmmaker, his poetry and novels are canonical works of modern Italian writing. Petrolio, a novel unfinished at the time of his murder in 1977, is Pasolini's last major work. All of Pasolini's major themes are here--the homoeroticism of working-class males, the reemergence of ancient myth in the modern city, and the exploitation of the underclass by capitalism. Pasolini blends these disparate themes together in a dense, but satisfying tale of social corruption, political intrigue, and personal sexual salvation. Deeply intellectual and at times mystifying--often because it was partially reconstructed from notes--Pasolini's final work is a tribute to both his power and endurance as an artist.
