About This Book

With his novels, short stories, and plays, Giovanni Verga (1840–1922) achieved renown in the Italian verismo (realist) school of writing. This outstanding selection of 12 short stories — most from the Sicilian writer's Vita dei campi (Rural Life) and Novelle rusticane (Rustic Stories) — attests to his storytelling skills.
Selections include `Nedda,` a short story that initiated Verga's naturalistic depictions of Sicilian peasant life; the much-celebrated `Cavalleria Rusticana` (Rustic Chivalry), a tale of flirtation, jealousy, and a deadly duel; and `L'amante di Gramigna` (Gramigna's Mistress), a fascinating psychological study. The collection also features `Reverie,` `Jeli the Herdsman,` `Nasty Redhead,` `The She-Wolf,` `Pestilential Air,` `Possessions,` `The History of St. Joseph's Donkey,` `Dark Bread,` and `Liberty.`
For this dual-language book, the editor has provided excellent new English translations on pages facing the original Italian text, as well as an informative Introduction and notes.
