The titles in this series present well-edited basic texts to be used in courses and seminars and for teachers looking for a succinct exposition of the results of recent research. Each volume in the series presents the fundamental ideas of a great philosopher by means of a very thorough and up-to-date commentary on one important text. The edition and explanation of the text give insight into the whole of the oeuvre, of which it is an integral part.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is an eminently successful piece of work and just
the sort of thing we have come to expect from Merold Westphal. The text is a
lucid, lively, humorous, readable, brisk, judicious commentary in American
English from which students on many levels will profit."

-- (08/20/2018)

Plotting the Past
stands out as a serious work marked by sharp analytical skills and an unusual
breadth of subject matter encompassing questions of genre and ideology that are
central to present-day critical discourses.

-- (08/20/2018)

. . . Coletta has given us a book that is engaging,
challenging, and astute. For its mature historical sense and theoretical
refinement, Plotting the Past
deserves high praise.

--CLIO (08/20/2018)

"Why Manzoni's I promesi
sposi
and 'Del romanzo storico' - models, respectively, for the writing and
the theroretical rejection of historical fiction - should continue to resonate
in both the creation of and debates surrounding twentieth-century Italian
fiction is a question amply and eloquently answered in Della Coletta's Plotting the Past. A felicitous
combination of broad contextual and detailed textual analyses, these readings
of Manzoni, Lampedusa, Morante, and Eco animate issues of genre, gender,
historiography, literary history, and epistemology, all the while focusing on
the construction of what might called an 'ethics of historical fiction.' The
relationship of that vexing couple - history and fiction - has rarely been so
lucidly scrutinized, nor the reasons for its continuing union so convincingly
and gracefully argued. This book is a major achievement."

--Rebecca West, University of Chicago (08/20/2018)
