Italian novels of peasant crisis, 1930-1950 : bonfires in the night by Brian Moloney( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together the insights of historians and critics to examine the account given in a range of novels of the effect on peasant society of Fascist ruralist policies and the post-Second World War struggles for land reform. The authors whose works are discussed include Ignazio Silone, Carlo Levi, Francesco Jovine and Cesare Pavese. Pavese turns rural Piedmont into a paradigm of the nation to reveal the tensions of post-war Italy, while Silone, Levi and Jovine not merely challenge traditional stereotypes of the south but challenge the north's conventional assumptions of superiority by offering peasant society as the source of alternative values. The themes of community and ownership of the land run through the novels discussed."--Jacket
Francis of Assisi and his "Canticle of Brother Sun" reassessed by Brian Moloney( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his fairly short life - he lived from 1181 or 1182 to 1226 - Francis of Assisi wrote relatively little, but he taught, preached and lived so influentially, so charismatically, that his voice still speaks to us across the centuries. His Canticle of Brother Sun has been paid little attention by literary critics, despite being one of the first known works of literature in the Italian language. Bringing the skills of a literary historian to the subject, Brian Moloney considers the genesis of the canticle to show how it works as a carefully composed work of art, rather than as a spontaneous effusion of feeling. The book also includes a line by line commentary on the canticle."--

Scritti giornalistici, saggi postumi, appunti sparsi e pagine autobiografiche by Italo Svevo( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in Italian and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Si pubblica in edizione critica la raccolta più completa degli scritti saggistici, giornalistici, diaristici e occasionali di Italo Svevo. I testi, eterogenei per natura e storia editoriale, attraversano tutto l'arco della carriera letteraria dello scrittore e sono distribuiti in quattro categorie: articoli di giornale e scritti d'occasione; saggi pubblicati postumi; conferenza su James Joyce (e i relativi frammenti); scritti autobiografici e appunti sparsi. Quest'ultima sezione raccoglie cronache familiari, pagine di diario, frammenti, dediche, massime e aforismi. Segue appendice con gli scritti di attribuzione incerta. La genesi dei testi è ricostruita nell'introduzione, congiuntamente alla formazione culturale dell'autore triestino e alle sue collaborazioni giornalistiche (a cominciare da quella più duratura per «indipendente»). La sezione delle testimonianze, oltre a presentare specifiche note esegetiche, tenute distinte da quelle dell'apparato tipico dell'edizione critica, costituisce un'ulteriore guida per il lettore, mentre la nota ai testi fornisce una descrizione dettagliata dei testimoni e chiarisce i criteri di edizione dei testi pubblicati."--Dust jacket
È tanto differente quest'Inghilterra-- : gli scritti londinesi di Italo Svevo by Italo Svevo( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in Italian and English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friends in exile : Italo Svevo and James Joyce by Brian Moloney( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book in English on the friendship that sprang up between these two major writers and the effects on both of that friendship. The encounter has long been undervalued by scholars, largely because Joyce and Svevo themselves appeared at times to attach relatively little importance to it, but it was in fact far from tangential to the development of their careers, coming as it did at key moments in their lives. This book is the first full study of the effect on both writers of their encounter and their unlikely friendship, in the light of the parallels between their life experiences and their shared culture
