Author: Martino Marazzi
Publisher: Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press
View: 802Their personal stories testify to a wider collective novel focused around the myth and the dream of "making America." Through their pages and their critical presentation, the reader is brought to discover the literary dignity of this production, clearly linked to the popular roots of nineteenth-century Italian culture, but at the same time confronted with the traumas and the different realities of a new society. The main themes are voiced - immigration, labor conditions, family ties, the lure and snares of the big city, its multiethnicity."--BOOK JACKET.

Category: Literary Criticism
View: 4100This collection of essays offers the reader a critical analysis of the wide range of Italianese literature written over the last thirty years in North America. While writing by Italians in North America dates back over to the settlement of the New World, the last three decades in both Canada and America can justifiably be termed a renaissance in Italian writing. Both post-war immigrants and second and third generation North America Italians have produced a plethora of works in all literary genres and academic fields. Kenneth Scambray discusses the five major categories representative critical, scholarly, and imaginative works written since the 1970s. In the first three sections on history, folklore, and sociology, he locates the Italian experience socially and culturally in North America. In the following sections Scambray explores the works of selected North American Italian novelists, poets, and playwrights who have written about their Italian ethnic experiences.
