"A new translation of the stories of Giovanni Verga, the greatest Italian short-story writer since Boccaccio." "Born in 1840 into a well-to-do Sicilian family, in the 1870s Verga became an active observer and habitue of Milanese salon society, but eventually found in the everyday lives of Sicilian peasants the inspiration for his finest narratives. Love, adultery and honour are recurring themes in stories set against the scorched landscapes of the slopes of Mount Etna and the Plain of Catania."--Jacket

Tutte le novelle by Giovanni Verga( Book )

133 editions published between 1940 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La carriera di novelliere di Giovanni Verga cominciò quasi per caso nel 1874 quando, pressato dalle difficoltà economiche e sollecitato dall'editore Emilio Treves, diede alle stampe Nedda, un testo chiave nell'evoluzione della narrativa verghiana che, come scrisse Luigi Capuana, aprì "un nuovo filone nella miniera quasi intatta del romanzo italiano". Non è infatti solo la straordinaria produzione breve del Verga a trarre inizio da questo racconto, ma la sua intera stagione verista. Come un graduale processo d'avvicinamento ai Malavoglia e al Mastro don Gesualdo, dunque, le novelle di Verga acquistano un ulteriore valore e si rivelano, con i loro esperimenti narrativi e stilistici, il più genuino laboratorio creativo del grande scrittore."--Back cover

53 editions published between 1893 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Una peccatrice" narra la storia di Pietro e Narcisa. Pietro è un giovane di Catania, studente di legge e con passioni letterarie, che si innamora perdutamente di una donna incontrata durante una passeggiata ai giardini pubblici della città. La donna si chiama Narcisa Valderi ed è la moglie del conte di Prato ma sembra non accettare la corte assidua del giovane che, desideroso di riscattarsi, compone in breve tempo un dramma che lo rende subito celebre. Grazie alla notorietà ottenuta egli conquista la donna che gli si dona completamente. Ma dopo un periodo assai breve di grande felicità ed esaltazione, Narcisa si rende conto che il giovane inizia a stancarsi del suo ossessivo e sfrenato amore. L'opera è in gran parte autobiografica. Emerge tuttavia in essa l'esigenza della narrazione staccata e impersonale che lo scrittore stesso enuncerà in seguito come la propria linea programmatica. Giovanni Verga è lo scrittore italiano considerato come il maggior esponente della corrente letteraria del verismo

48 editions published between 1855 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<<Non pretendeva di essere un sant'uomo, no! I sant'uomini morivano di fame>> è il pensiero di uno dei protagonisti delle Novelle rusticane, uno dei capolavori veristi di Verga, ora in edizione commentata criticamente a cura di Giorgio Forni, corredata da illustrazioni originali e basata su tutto il ricco materiale manoscritto esistente e finora inedito che permette di entrare nel vivo di uno degli episodi più alti e originali dello sperimentalismo narrativo del nostro tardo Ottocento. I temi della <<roba>>, della <<fiumana del progresso>> che ci travolge e della legge del più forte rendono eticamente attuali le dodici storie dell'autore dei Malavoglia ricordandoci che <<la roba non è di chi l'ha, ma di chi la sa fare>>
