Grazia Deledda's eternal adolescents : the pathology of arrested maturation by Janice M Kozma( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout her thirty-five novels and 350 short stories, Grazia Deledda presents a spectrum of male characters who collectively exhibit the commonly accepted symptoms of arrested maturation. If her protagonists were to congeal into a composite man, together they would constitute a "classic case." In Grazia Deledda's Eternal Adolescents: The Pathology of Arrested Maturation, the author shows that a century ago Grazia Deledda identified a psycho/sociological pathology and analyzed it thoroughly by superimposing her own perspicacious, psychological template upon the relationships of her fictional characters. In important instances the arrested maturation of Deledda's male characters helps to advance the plot of her stories in ways that would be improbable otherwise
Ashes by Grazia Deledda( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and Italian and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this novel Deledda is especially trenchant on the predicament of Sardinian women living in a dangerously unforgiving, patronistic, and repressive world. She wrote Ashes specifically for her friend, the celebrated state actress Eleonora Duse (Italy's "Sarah Bernhardt"). In fact, Duse's first motion picture was Cenere, a classic of Italian film history
Marianna Sirca by Grazia Deledda( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Against the will of her entire family, the lovers plan to marry, but at Marianna's insistence only after Simone "gets right with the law." The novel traces the story of these two emarginated lovers through various twists and turns, ending with a typical Deleddan flourish that leaves the reader with a real awareness of Sardinian, social mores, values, attitudes, and tradition."--Jacket
