20th-century Italian women writers : the feminine experience by Alba della Fazia Amoia( )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As an international scholar and resident of Italy who has observed and shared the experiences of Italian women for the past twenty years, Alba Amoia has positioned herself perfectly to report to English-speaking audiences the great range and variety of writing produced by twentieth-century Italian women. Her personal contact with many of the authors she discusses lends further immediacy to her study. Rather than focusing exclusively on contemporary living authors, Amoia discusses writers from the early part of the twentieth century as well, linking them with later writers spanning twentieth-century Italy's literary movements and political, social, and economic developments. The eleven writers in this volume criticize the female role in Italian society, externalize women's unconscious needs, and offer unusual examples of feminine creativity. Amoia provides a critical treatment of each author, incorporating the accepted opinion of Italian and other critics. Essentially, Amoia provides a collection of succinct and accessible monographs featuring pertinent biographical information and extensive bibliographies. She discusses each author's most representative works, seeking to give readers both a sense of these women as writers and an understanding of their significance in the male dominated literary scene
Multicultural writers from antiquity to 1945 : a bio-bibliographical sourcebook by Alba della Fazia Amoia( )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The final decades of the 20th century have seen an explosion of interest in multiculturalism.

For centuries, people from around the world have come in contact with cultures other than their own, and their exposure to multiple cultures has fostered their creativity and ability to make lasting contributions to civilization. The effects of multiculturalism are especially apparent in literature, since writers tend to be particularly aware of their environments and record their experiences. T

"The political circumstances following World War II exposed many people to other cultures. This reference discusses the experiences of writers active since 1945 who were shaped by cultures other than their own." "Included are alphabetically arranged entries for more than 100 writers, including Chinua Achebe, W.H. Auden, Mircea Eliade, Jamaica Kincaid, Salman Rushdie, and Elie Wiesel. The profiled authors either lived in another culture voluntarily or were wrenched from one culture into another. Each entry includes a brief biography, a discussion of multicultural themes in the writer's works, a review of criticism, and primary and secondary bibliographies. The volume closes with a selected, general bibliography. The reference demonstrates the value of multicultural experiences in the lives of writers around the world and fosters a greater appreciation of cultural diversity."--Jacket
