"Still a powerful and unsettling account of an extraordinary young woman coming of age. . . . The power of this novel lies in Sibilla Aleramo's rendering of her character's slow but inexorable growth to real adulthood. It is the insight and perception she brings to these events that make them significant and unforgettable. . . . it is a story, finally, of self-discovery. This book is fascinating in its dissection of a marriage and in her translation of the nuances of domestic life. . . . It is a sad novel, utterly authentic, controlled and sustained. It is a strange and mesmerizing classic." --Los Angeles Herald-ExaminerReseña del editor:
For a book that sent shock waves through the European literary establishment and, since its original publication in 1906 has gone through seven editions along with highly cclaimed translations into all th principal languages of Europe, A Woman (Una Donna) by Sibilla Aleramo (1876-1960) has remained curiously obscure in America. Aleramo's lightly fictionalized memoir presented a kaleidoscopic series of Italian images-the frenetic industrialism of the North, the miserable squalor of the country's backward areas to the South, fin de si cle Italian politics and literary life-all set in the framework of a drama admiringly characterized by Luigi Pirandellow as "grim and powerful." For some other Italians, A woman touched ar aw nerve, and many critics reacted to Aleramo with extreme hostility. However, whether one liked Aleramo's novel or not, the book was an iceberg in the mainstream of Italian literary life, impossible to get around without careful inspection. --From the introduction
