The novel of Ferrara by Giorgio Bassani( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Giorgio Bassani's six classic books, collected for the first time in English as the epic masterwork they were intended to be. Among the masters of twentieth-century literature, Giorgio Bassani and his Northern Italian hometown of Ferrara "are as inseparable as James Joyce and Dublin or Italo Svevo and Trieste" (from the Introduction). Now published in English for the first time as the unified masterwork Bassani intended, The Novel of Ferrara brings together Bassani's six classics, fully revised by the author at the end of his life: Within the Walls, The Gold-Rimmed Spectacles, The Garden of the Finzi-Continis, Behind the Door, The Heron, and The Smell of Hay. Set in the northern Italian town of Ferrara before, during, and after the Second World War, these interlocking stories present a fully rounded world of unforgettable characters: the respected doctor whose homosexuality is tolerated until he is humiliatingly exposed by an exploitative youth; a survivor of the Nazi death camps whose neighbors' celebration of his return gradually turns to ostracism; a young man discovering the ugly, treacherous price that people will pay for a sense of belonging; the Jewish aristocrat whose social position has been erased; the indomitable schoolteacher, Clelia Trotti, whose Communist idealism disturbs and challenges a postwar generation. The Novel of Ferrara memorializes not only the Ferrarese people, but the city itself, which assumes a character and a voice deeply inflected by the Jewish community to which the narrator belongs. Suffused with new life by acclaimed translator and poet Jamie McKendrick, this seminal work seals Bassani's reputation as 'a quietly insistent chronicler of our age's various menaces to liberty' (Jonathan Keates)"--

The garden of the Finzi-Continis by Giorgio Bassani( Book )

4 editions published between 1965 and 2017 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The narrator, a young middle-class Jew in the Italian city of Ferrara, has long been fascinated from afar by the Finzi-Continis, a wealthy and aristocratic Jewish family, and especially by their daughter Micol. But it is not until 1938 that he is invited behind the walls of their lavish estate, as local Jews begin to gather there to avoid the racial laws of the Fascists, and the garden of the Finzi-Continis becomes an idyllic sanctuary in an increasingly brutal world. Years after the war, the narrator returns in memory to his doomed relationship with the lovely Micol, and to the predicament that faced all the Ferrarese Jews, in this unforgettably wrenching portrait of a community about to be destroyed by the world outside the garden walls."--Provided by publisher

Archipelago by Antonella Anedda( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Archipelago is a bilingual selection of poems by the leading Italian poet Antonella Anedda drawn from five collections she has published in Italy. Her poetry has a searing, disruptive quality, an honesty that is hard won. Her words have the air of breaking the silence reluctantly, and they keep the silence with them. This stringent, ferrous element sets her at odds with the eloquence and lyricism characteristic of the Italian poetic tradition, and may owe something to an alternative nationality, a different landscape. Though born in Rome, she comes from a Sardinian family and has passed a grea
Vanishing points : poems by Valerio Magrelli( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The renowned Italian poet Valerio Magrelli has forged a unique approach for exploring the subtleties of language, a poetry of perception that takes the measure of its own veerings, "the exact degree / of deviation." His poems are histories of the inner life that turn into X-rays of the urban and the global, and press the intelligence into the service of the senses. Magrelli's poems condense the abstract and the intensely physical, subjecting modern experience to a minute and naked scrutiny.--FSG
Out there by Jamie McKendrick( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jamie McKendrick's sixth collection starts from the far flung ('out there' is the nothing - or the something - of outer space), ascertaining the mood of an observer on Uranus, or the perils of medieval travel, or listening for the speech of alien landscapes

The smell of hay by Giorgio Bassani( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These stories of the Jewish-Italian middle class of Ferrara seen on the eve of the Fascist anti-Semitic laws have a dimension of irony as well as wasted lives. Bassani returns to the city with the narrator of 'The Garden of the Finzi-Continis', and his poignant mixture of intimacy and eloquence. Amongst some familiar places and characters from the previous novels - the Jewish Cemetery, the Lattes clan - there are glimpses of many other lives underpinned by impending tragedy
Within the walls by Giorgio Bassani( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A young working class woman abandoned by her bourgeois lover; the tensions of intermarriage between established classes and communities; a holocaust survivor seemingly back from the dead; a formidable socialist activist defying house arrest; the only surviving witness to the first local atrocity of the Second World War. In these five unforgettable stories, Bassani gave life to the characters that would inform the Romanzo di Ferrara, his suite of novels depicting life in the city."--Publisher's description
