Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of contemporary Italy's best-known writers, Dacia Maraini has often been a figure of controversy as author and as cultural critic. Though she is recipient of numerous literary awards, Maraini's work has not received the sustained critical attention commensurable with its stature. Working and creating "dalla parte delle donne" (on the side of women), she had been effectively excluded from the Italian critical canon. The Pleasure of Writing is opened with Maraini's own analysis of women's writing. There follow 14 essays by an international group of Italianists, utilizing a wide spectrum of interpretive perspectives, form semiotics to psychoanalysis, to treat the full range of Maraini's production as novelist, playwright, poet, and filmmaker.

Book News Annotation:

One of contemporary Italy's best-known writers, Maraini has often been a figure of controversy as author and as cultural critic. Essays by an international group of Italianists, plus an essay by Maraini herself, use a wide spectrum of interpretive perspectives, from semiotics to psychoanalysis, to treat the full range of Maraini's production as novelist, playwright, poet, and filmmaker. Diaconescu-Blumenfeld teaches Italian studies at Vassar College. Testaferri teaches Italian literature at York University.
