This volume does not propose to offer a detailed history of the modern novel in Italy, for such an ambitious project requires a far different orientation and methodology. Regrettably, only a very small number of writers could be included in this anthology, but it is hoped that the depth of sustained analyses is to be preferred to coverage and inclusiveness. Choices regarding inclusion and exclusion are difficult to make, as all editors know, especially in a project that spans several decades of a country's literary history. Nonetheless, it is hoped that the essays in this volume will make possible a better understanding of their subjects by addressing themselves to those issues that illustrate the diversity as well as the continuity and development of the Italian novel. The fact that this collection - the first of its kind in English - would even be published demonstrates the breadth and the seriousness of American interest in Italy. The contributors are of the combined opinion that this volume will amply justify its publication if it sharpens the curiosity of the general reader and prods other scholars to offer their own views of a sector of Italian letters that has still to receive the attention it justly deserves. [From the Preface]
