MEDIA REVIEWS

"Considered one of Italy's major twentieth-century women writers, Anna Banti is best known for her novel Artemisia. Most of her literary production is concerned with the relationship between women, the female struggle for identity and independence, and the individual's entrapment by social institutions and conventions. The stories selected for this collection speak to these aspects of Banti's universe." --Fiora A. Bassanese, author of Understanding Luigi Pirandello


"The collection is very nicely balanced, with styles ranging from the patently autobiographical to the fantastic.... An excellent addition to the MLA Texts and Translations series." --Robert J. Rodini, author of Ludovico Ariosto: An Annotated Bibliography of Criticism, 1956-1980
