Description
A licentious woman coerces her son-in-law into an illicit affair; a young boy, forced to work down in a mine to make a living, is robbed of his childhood; and a returning soldier toys with the affections of local girls, inciting vengeance from the village folk. In this richly colorful 1880 collection of eight stories, Giovanni Verga (18401922) captures the poignancy and brutality of Sicilian life. Later adapted into a play and also Pietro Mascagni's celebrated opera Cavelleria Rusticana, the brief tale "Rustic Honor" is included in this volume. Quite successful in his era, this Italian naturalist was a major influence on D.H. Lawrence, who was among the first to translate his works into English.
