From men’s perspective, therefore, women’s research is a source of no interest, as it focuses on something that basically entails a regression to earlier stages of evolution. Consequently, the discovery of the “second memory”, seems to have caused the resurfacing of “a discrimination between the sexes”8 that had previously been obliterated, and that now grows stronger as humankind grounds it more than ever before on a biological difference. as near as the dawn”,9 is that women can no longer tolerate relationships of such unbalanced nature.

56 In A Piercing Cry, Banti eventually finds the courage to confess her regrets through Agnese, but this confession occurs many years after the death of her husband, who never knew the reasons for most of Banti’s professional choices. This is the reason why, as Magnolfi claims, “tutti i rapporti di coppia falliscono o producono sofferenza”57 in Banti’s works. There is no happy relationship in Banti’s fictional world, because her own life (and Agnese’s life) was the demonstration of how even the greatest love, “[l’] amore di un grande maestro”,58 may cause unhappiness.
