Written in 1949 and published shortly before his suicide, Cesare Pavese's last novel provides a strongly evocative, but detailed and concrete picture of life in the Piedmontese hills, seen through the eyes of a returned American immigrant. However, its main interest does not lie in its realism, a mode of writing which Pavese himself rejected. Instead, the novel's focus is on deeper levels of experience, the mysterious underlying continuities beneath the changing surface of life. In seeking to go beyond the limits set by the conventions of realism, the book combines an account of everyday life with a sense of its hidden dimensions. This edition contains a revised and expanded introduction to the novel, focusing particularly on the combination of realism and symbolism or myth that characterizes Pavese's writing. The edition also contains a bibliography, notes and vocabulary which should serve to make the text more readily accessible to students at both the high school and university level.

In the half-century following Pavese's death, much that was written about him sought principally to understand and define his complex character, and to determine his place within the twentieth-century Italian literary canon. Latterly, there appears to have been a significant shift in focus towards a closer reading of individual works or aspects or periods of his writing, the better to analyse and reveal the subtleties and depth of his vision. This present collection of ten essays conforms broadly with this tendency. It is organised chronologically with regard to Pavese's life and works so as to convey a sense of the development of a writer, over and above the particular concerns of any given essay. The book features contributions from many leading experts on Pavese.

Four significant Italian writers - Cesare Pavese, Primo Levi, Natalia Ginzburg and Francesca Sanvitale - who were brought up under the shadow of fascism and war and whose work spans the second half of the twentieth century, are the focus of this study of the 'unsaid' in modern Italian narrative. During periods that are free of censorship, how do writers decide what to excise, and how far are their omissions a form of concealment? What are the relationships between biography, fiction and autobiography? Do writers influence readers, or do they inevitably reflect their readers' attitudes? In this wide-ranging, lucid and thought-provoking work, which embraces, among other topics, literary depictions of the Holocaust, Italian political guilt and trauma, fairytales, film theory and feminist writing, Nicoletta Simborowski traces the path and significance of self-censorship in post-war Italy.
