La visione distopica di Philip K. Dick. Indagine su "The Man in the High Castle": dal romanzo al processo seriale

  • Alfonso Amendola Università degli Studi di Salerno

Abstract

The essay analyzes the series The Man in the High Castle, based on the homonymous novel by Philip K. Dick published in 1962. It is an audiovisual project targetted Amazon TV, substantially faithful to the novel by the American writer. The essay reconstructs the central moments of this “translation” and underlines its great contemporaneity. Also in the series we find the perfection of the dystopian narration of Philip K. Dick and its ability to describe a totalitarian society that exerts its power over citizens through the media, mystification and police.
