Searching for Emma : Gustave Flaubert and Madame Bovary by Dacia Maraini( Book )

30 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maraini argues that in their desire to claim Emma Bovary as a standard-bearer of revolt against patriarchal society, women have often overlooked the bitter, pitiless way in which Flaubert evokes Emma's insignificance and vulgarity. Searching for Emma guides us through Flaubert's novel and many of his letters, seeking out the sources of his obsessive cruelty toward Emma. Maraini relates Flaubert's contempt for Emma to his relationship with his mistress, Louise Colet, to his general terror of women, and to his own self-loathing. It was entirely in spite of himself, Maraini writes, that Flaubert created the female Don Quixote so admired for her restless spirit and ambition

Darkness : fiction by Dacia Maraini( Book )

43 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The seeds for the twelve interconnected crime stories in Darkness came from the pages of the Italian daily papers. In sparse prose that echoes the files of a police report, Dacia Maraini gives a resounding voice to the string of victims who receive only fleeting mention in the media each day. Among them is twelve-year-old Viollca, an Albanian sold into prostitution by her parents, who hope she will soon return with enough money to pay for her dowry and a new roof. And the boy Tano, who brings charges of physical abuse against his father. Two years and the death of his younger brother pass before anyone at the police station will believe him. Linking the collection together is Adele Sofia, a steel-nerved though tenderhearted police commissioner with a penchant for licorice at various points on the investigative trail, and whose job it is to hunt down those who prey on society's weakest and most vulnerable members. Told in a straight forward, unforgettably powerful and affecting manner in which the facts speak for themselves, Darkness illuminates the underbelly of Rome. With absorbing compassion and discretion Maraini creates a cast of characters who wake up each morning to a reality quite different from la dolce vita."--BOOK JACKET

Dacia Maraini, scrivendo una lettera all'amico Enzo Siciliano, rievoca la dolorosa esperienza della perdita - poco prima della nascita - di un figlio fortemente desiderato, e s'interroga sulla maternità, sui motivi che nella nostra società inducono alcune donne ad abortire mentre presso popolazioni con religione e usanze molto lontane dalle nostre la nascita di un figlio resta un evento irrinunciabile. L'autrice indaga inoltre sui significati mitologici, erotici, mercantili del corpo femminile e analizza il linguaggio della seduzione, la violenza, lo stupro, la prostituzione, il piacere, il senso di colpa, la verginità, il matrimonio

Bagheria by Dacia Maraini( Book )

48 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Bagheria, Dacia Maraini revisits the landscape of early memory. She describes Sicily in sensuous detail, the town of Bagheria, and the ancestral villa to which she returned as a child after two horrific years of imprisonment with her family in a Japanese concentration camp. The Villa Valguarnera recalls Maraini's spiritual struggles and her rebellion against the elitism of her class. She also discusses her experience of child abuse. Bagheria is a tale of corruption: centuries of the town's past unfold alongside Maraini's family history as she details the involvement of the mafia in the architectural decimation of Bagheria in the 1970s
The silent duchess by Dacia Maraini( Book )

"Set in Sicily in the early eighteenth-century, the novel tells the story of Marianna, the daughter of an aristocratic family and the victim of a mysterious childhood trauma that has left her deaf and mute, trapped in a world of silence. In luminous language that conveys both the keen visual sight and the deep human insight possessed by her remarkable main character, Dacia Maraini captures the splendor and the corruption of Marianna's world and the strength of her unbreakable spirit."--Publisher's website
