Copies which are only mine: the poem by Luigi Trucillo is specifically written for this issue of «Aisthesis»(vol. 9, n. 2, 2016), edited by CONTE P., FIMIANI F., WEEMANS M, Je est un autre. Mimicries in nature, art and society. It is a witty and cruel exercise of self-reflection about his work as poet. But this auto-analysis is not just about the originality and the plagiarism set up by the writer against himself. The poem reveals the relationship of the alleged artist’s uniqueness with a camouflaged auto-mimesis or a dissimulated auto-simulation made up through replicas and repetitions of themes, formulas and styles. It sounds like a refrain of Rimbaud’s Je est un autre: «the other is the self-expropriated self», a clandestine lookalike. Trucillo affirms that the poet’s style is «a raptus of / an empathic snatching». Finally, the human style is not a clean break with the world: rather, it is a sudden and dangerous theft of the living matter of all beings and things – not only through feeling, but also through language.
