The language of the novels of Andrea Camilleri is idiosyncratic, accreting onto Sicilian dialect like a saprophyte. However, the novels of Camilleri have had greater national literary success in Italy in the last 30 years. The first part of this text will attempt to explain the reasons for this cultural phenomenon, against the backdrop of the Italian linguistic panora- ma. The second part gathers together aspects of Camilleri’s prose, which shed light on the nature and origin of his literary expression.

Abstract

The language of the novels of Andrea Camilleri is idiosyncratic, accreting onto Sicilian dialect like a saprophyte. However, the novels of Camilleri have had greater national literary success in Italy in the last 30 years. The first part of this text will attempt to explain the reasons for this cultural phenomenon, against the backdrop of the Italian linguistic panora- ma. The second part gathers together aspects of Camilleri’s prose, which shed light on the nature and origin of his literary expression.
