Il Gattopardo, first published in 1958, had a rapid and amazing rise to fame and popularity both within and outside Italy and its controversial interpretation of the Risorgimento has proved to be of enduring interest and relevance. It is studied widely in the UK both at GCE Advanced Level and at University. The language of the novel is extraordinarily rich and complex: on the one hand, the source of the book's perennial fascination, but on the other, a potentially frustrating barrier for the student. This Guide provides students and general readers with essential background historical information, explanations of the many literary and historical allusions in the text and an extensive glossary.

Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's Il Gattopardo achieved an international reputation during the sixties and has since proved to be one of the most enduring works of twentieth century Italian literature. In his novel Lampedusa looks back on the history of Sicily and evokes the atmosphere of a mysterious and insular world where revolution and political upheaval are bringing change to an apparently unchanging society. Ernest Hampson's introductory study stresses the extent to which the author's personal experience of Sicilian history influenced his work. He focusses on the novel's historical theme, that of the Risorgimento and its effects on the island's ruling classes, as well as on the work's key theme, that of death, the death of the protagonist, Don Fabrizio, and of the Sicilian aristocratic class which he embodies. A section is also devoted to the novel's complex use of symbolic imagery. This book is aimed at teachers and students of Italian as well as the general reader.

"In the last two years of his life, the Sicilian aristocrat Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, in addition to his internationally celebrated novel, The Leopard, also composed three shorter pieces of fiction that confirm and expand our picture of his brilliant late-blooming talent. In the parable-like "Joy and the Law," a mediocre clerk in receipt of an unexpected supplement to his Christmas bonus (an awkwardly outsize version of the traditional panettone) finds his visions of domestic bliss upset by unwritten rules of honor and obligation. At the heart of the collection stands "The Professor and the Siren" and its redoubtable hero, Professor La Ciura, the only Hellenist scholar to claim firsthand experience of ancient Greek--from the mouth of the beautiful half-human sea creature he loved in his youth. The volume closes with the last piece of writing completed by the author, "The Blind Kittens," a story originally conceived as the first chapter of a follow-up to The Leopard, a novel that would have traced the post-unification emergence of a new agrarian ruling class in Sicily, coarser than its predecessor but equally blind to the inexorable march of change. This elegant new translation of Lampedusa's complete short fiction, the first by a single hand, updates and corrects previously available English versions"--

Moving through time, he uncovers often-unsuspected novelistic continuities and international transformations and echoes, from Maria Edgeworth's Castle Rackrent, published in 1800, to G. Tomasi di Lampedusa's 1958 book Il Gattopardo.By revealing the "family resemblance" of novels from Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Brazil, this volume shows how genealogical narratives take on special significance in contexts of cultural periphery. Welge links private and public histories, while simultaneously integrating detailed accounts of various literary fields across the globe. In combining theories of the novel, recent discussions of cultural geography, and new approaches to genealogical narratives, Genealogical Fictions addresses a significant part of European and Latin American literary history in which texts from different national cultures illuminate each other in unsuspected ways and reveal the repetition, as well as the variation, among them.
