Italian Women Writers, 1800-2000: Boundaries, Borders, and Transgression.

talian Women Writers, 1800-2000: Boundaries, Borders, and Transgression

“Including essays on a wide selection of well-known and less-known women writers of the last two
centuries, this useful collection is arranged in sections devoted to the topics of spatial and cultural boundaries, border identities, and excluded, marginalised identities (including migrant writers). … It is pleasing that this well-constructed volume treats not only narrative but also autobiographical writings and poetry. Recommended.” (Rebecca West, Choice)

 

“The anthology, which opens with an excellent introduction contextualising the essays in the critical and theoretical re actions of Foucault, Benjamin, Lefebvre, Anzaldúa, Braidotti, Deleuze, and Guattari, is made up of twelve essays divided thematically into three sections. …

Italian Women Writers, 1800–2000. Boundaries, Borders, and Transgression is a current and interesting study, rich in elaborate biographical references that propose original perspectives on the concepts of limits and transgression in female writing. The volume offers a a precious spark for further reflections and research in the field of female contributions to the national history and culture.”  (Chiara Fabbian, Journal of Modern Italian Studies)
