And so on – might better be put aside in favor of an approach that treats his writings as dramatized formulations of matters not given to abstract conceptualization and nominalization. Gramsci allegorizes a formative response to Dante and this act aligns him not just with (and against) Eliot but with a wide variety of modern poets and writers. Needless to say, Gramsci’s energies do not produce a simulacrum of Eliot’s allegory for they have different “imaginings” of that which might come to be. In Gramsci’s correction of Croce (in the letter to Tatiana for Professor Cosmo, his old Dante professor), there is a revealing gambit on a set of what quickly come to be defining binary oppositions: De Sanctis, in his essay on Farinata, commenting on the harshness of the tenth canto of Dante’s Inferno, attributes it to the fact that Farinata, after having been depicted as heroic in the first part of the episode, becomes in the last half a pedagogue.

Using Croce’s scheme, Farinata changes from poetry to structure. And again, drawing the line between Farinata and Cavalcante, Gramsci writes: Here the difference between the two emerges. Farinata, upon hearing Florentine spoken, becomes once more a man of politics, the Ghibelline hero. Cavalcante’s thoughts, instead, are directed toward Guido. … Cavalcante’s drama passes subtly, but is marked by an unutterable intensity. (1973, 208–9) By the end of this letter, Gramsci, of course, has overcome Croce’s singularly dull distinction between poetry and structure, but he has left the other opposition “heroic”/“pedagogic” standing unchallenged.
