The Servant: Class Estrangement as Experience in Grazia Deledda's "Canne al vento"
Freeman-Moir, John
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v45 n4 p420-435 2013
The servant lives within the social relations of feudal class estrangement. He is a natural moralist who keeps his eyes and his mind open, amidst the compromises, intricacies, and oppression of being a servant, and he sees and understands a good deal more than those around him. Above all, he is a craftsman of experience who, in making history with only a few resources, lives an examined life, and turns estrangement into a life lived for others. Along the way, and ever sensitive to mundane hope and sorrow--even at the point of death--the servant offers educative insight into some of life's questions. Within a broadly materialist and pragmatic framework, this article examines the concrete particularity of estrangement in terms of the servant's actions, desires and relations with others.
