Annie Chartres Vivanti: Transnational Politics, Identity, and Culture
Sharon Wood, Erica Moretti
Rowman & Littlefield, Oct 12, 2016 - Literary Criticism - 312 pages
This book explores the work of a writer, Annie Chartres Vivanti (1866–1942), who
brought a transnational dimension to the marked provincialism of the Italian novel by
addressing issues of gender, ethnicity, and sexuality on personal and international
levels, and by creating work that distanced itself from much of the female-penned literature of
the day, scorning both decorum and social respectability. Chapters in this book examine
Vivanti’s output from multiple perspectives, taking into account her politics and her
career as a journalist, writer, and singer, as well as her literary work.
