Based on the phenomenological-hermeneutic method, this is a study of the collection of short stories entitled "Racconti Surrealisti e satirici", written by the Italian author Alberto Moravia and published in one volume in 1989, but formerly published in two volumes, in 1940 and in 1944. Through references to Greco-Roman and Islamic Mythology, the intertextuality between Moravia’s short stories and mythological stories regarding theme, narrative and discoursive aspects will be elucidated. While those references are described and explained, analyses of the way Moravia’s short stories are related to the facts and values of the myths they refer to and the new meanings that are added to Moravian narratives will be presented.
