A Self-Reflexive Verista. Metareference and Autofiction in Luigi Capuana’s Narrative
With a Preface by Edwige Comoy Fusaro, this volume is one of few monographs on Italian post-Risorgimento author Luigi Capuana, and the first one written in English in more than forty years. Narratology and critical theory are combined with more ‘traditional’, historical-philological criticism to offer a radical rereading of the author’s narrative.
Central to this study is the seemingly counter-intuitive notion of artistic self-reflexivity, which represents an innovative take on an author like Capuana, who has long been ‘canonised’ as a verista.
