The church of solitude by Grazia Deledda( )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Church of Solitude tells the story of Maria Concezione, a young Sardinian seamstress living with breast cancer at the cusp of the twentieth century. Overwhelmed by the shame of her diagnosis, she decides that no one can know what has happened to her, but the heavy burden of this secrecy changes her life in dramatic ways and almost causes the destruction of several people in her life. This surprising novel paints the portrait of a woman facing the unknown with courage, faith, and self-reliance, and is the last and most autobiographical work of Grazia Deledda, who died of breast cancer in 1936, shortly after its publication."--Back cover

"After serving time in mainland Italy for a minor theft, Elias Portolu returns home to Nuoro, in rural Sardinia. Lonely and vulnerable after his prison exile, he falls in love with Maddalena, his brother's fiancee. He finds himself trapped by social and religious strictures, his passion and guilt winding into a spiral of anguish and paralyzing indecision. For guidance he turns to the village priest, who advises him to resist temptation; then he turns to the pagan "father of the woods," who recognizes the weakness of human will and urges him to declare his love before it is too late. Finally Elias chooses a course that provides a measure of redemption but forces him into a position from which he can only helphlessly observe the results of his affair."--Back cover

After the divorce by Grazia Deledda( Book )

"This novel begins with Constantino Ledda's conviction and sentencing for the murder of his cruel uncle. Though innocent of the crime, he accepts the guilty verdict as punishment for marrying Giovanna Era through a civil ceremony rather than an expensive church wedding. When her husband is taken away, Giovanna has no way to provide for herself, her mother, or her son, who soon dies of malnutrition. Out of desperation she divorces Constantino, according to a new law for wives of convicts, and marries a wealthy but brutish landowner. When the true murderer confesses and Constantino returns, he and Giovanna begin a forbidden and ultimately destructive affair."--

Chiaroscuro by Grazia Deledda( )

32 editions published between 1912 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los seres que pueblan estos relatos viven en una sociedad agraria cuyas raíces profundas son el paganismo y la superstición. Grazia Deledda muestra cómo los patrones de conducta arcaicos--los celos, la desesperación, los amores prohibidos, la traición--se agravan cuando son expuestos al rigor moral de unos códigos morales surgidos del Catolicismo, injertados en una estructura patriarcal inflexible. Es gente atrapada, para quienes el alivio de una penuria solo anuncia la llegada de otra. Relatos realistas con elementos de leyenda, de supersticiones antiguas y de tradiciones locales, que evitan los finales trillados. Porque los personajes se enfrentan a peligros reales: el hambre, la malaria, la sequía, la indigencia. Desde la mirada de Deledda, nadie es capaz de condenar a la joven que se casa con un hombre al que odia solo por huir del hambre. O de no emocionarse con el campesino que, privado de mejores palabras, compara el surgimiento de un sentimiento extraño que lo atemoriza con la mordedura de una víbora

Colombi e sparvieri by Grazia Deledda( Book )

67 editions published between 1912 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exposes America's secret program to create biological weapons of mass destruction. From anthrax to botulism, from smallpox to Ebola, the threat of biological destruction is rapidly overtaking our collective fear of atomic weaponry. In an era when a lone fanatic could wipe out an entire population with the contents of a small vial, the specter of germ warfare has moved into a prominent position in the public's mind. This riveting narrative traces America's own covert biological weapons program from its origins in World War II to its abrupt cancellation in 1969. This project, at its peak, employed 5,000 people, tested pathogens on 2,000 live human volunteers, and conducted open-air tests on American soil. The U.S. government appropriated research from Japanese experiments on Chinese civilians, thus benefiting from one of the twentieth century's greatest atrocities; sprayed its own cities with bacterial aerosols; and stockpiled millions of bacterial bombs for instant deployment. Yet, surprisingly, almost nothing has been published about this project until now. In light of America's increasing surveillance and condemnation of foreign biological weapons programs, this exposé of America's own dangerous Cold War secret is both fascinating and shocking.--From publisher description

Cosima by Grazia Deledda( Book )

74 editions published between 1937 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cósima, novela publicada póstumamente, es la obra más personal de Grazia Deledda. Sugestivos paisajes de su Cerdeña natal, escenarios de fábula y leyenda, muestran personajes encerrados en la monótona existencia de una pequeña capital de provincia, en la que todo aparece reglamentado por férreas leyes consuetudinarias. Contra esas leyes no escritas se rebelará, ya casi desde niña la pequeña Grazia-Cósima, intuyendo que tales restricciones chocan frontalmente con su ansia de libertad y conocimiento. A pesar de la proximidad de la muerte o quizá precisamente por ello, Cósima es una obra vital, un testamento de supervivencia, en la que recuerdos y experiencias vividos en Nuoro, y tantos usos y costumbres de su isla afloran con la fuerza y la imaginación de una adolescente que sueña con convertirse en escritora de éxito. Grazia Deledda recibió en 1926 el Premio Nobel de Literatura por su potencia de escritora, sostenida por un alto ideal, que retrata en forma plástica la vida tal cual es en su apartada isla natal y que trata con profundidad y calor los problemas de interés general humano . [Deledda] no solo reproduce la condición psicológica de su época sino que su obra va más allá de su propio tiempo. Da voz a las gentes y sentimientos de un antiguo pueblo. M.ª Teresa Navarro
