Sottoboschi letterari. Sei "case studies" fra Otto e Novecento. Mara Antelling, Emma Boghen Conigliani, Evelyn, Anna Franchi, Jolanda, Flavia Steno

  • Cristina Gragnani,
  • Ombretta Frau,

Sottoboschi letterari brings together essays about six female writers from the period between the last decade of the nineteenth century and the first world war: Mara Antelling, Emma Boghen Conigliani, Evelyn, Anna Franchi, Jolanda, and Flavia Steno. Through the metaphor of the undergrowth, which recalls certain features of Deleuze's rhizome, the book explores the way in which the chosen writers made headway in the literary scene of Italy at the end of the nineteenth century through contributions in the form of narrative, essays, sociology and literary criticism. Apparently conservative, and subscribing to the dominant vision of the role of women in society and in the family, these writers nevertheless made a decisive step towards the modern concept of the female intellectual.
