9780810160453: Beautiful Women

Giuseppe Antonio Borgese's masterful collection of stories, Beautiful Women is a spiritual celebration of the charms and wonder of women - wives and mistresses, sisters and mothers, paramours and unrequited loves. Borgese paints eighteen miniature portraits in the vibrant colors of Italy, but his language is an appeal to all the senses. These romantic stories convey both the promise of love and the passionate melancholy generated by memories of it, by love's broken promises, and by the knowledge that the death of love is foretold at the moment of its birth. Borgese is best known in America for his antifascist novels and essays, but his Italian readers have long admired the three volumes of short stories published in the 1920s. Beautiful Women represents the apex of his short story work and reveals another side of Borgese's always passionate writing.
