9780820410913: Thomas Mann's «Fiorenza» (American University Studies)

The Italian adaptation of Thomas Mann's Fiorenza, which imaginatively reconstructs the conflict between Lorenzo de Medici and Girolamo Savonarola in 15th-century Florence, was successfully presented on the Italian stage in 1986. This volume makes available the translated text of the Italian version, rounded out by an historical introduction and the complete texts of Mann's Fiorenza and Gladius Dei, the short story which served as a kind of preliminary study for the drama of conflict between pagan estheticism and tragic fanaticism.

About the Author:

ALBA AMOIA is Associate Professor Emerita of Romance Languages at Hunter College of the City University of New York and previously taught at Columbia University. She also held positions at the United Nations, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the State Department Language Division. She is coeditor of Multicultural Writers from Antiquity to 1945 (Greenwood, 2002).

Review:

«This variegated presentation of a lesser known work of Thomas Mann, whose events take place in Florence in 1492, falls nicely into the framework of the quinquecentennial celebrations of the discovery of America. Of literary and historical interest, the volume also offers a highly stageable English version of Mann's drama - relevant even today - revolving around the conflict between Lorenzo de Medici and Savanarola.» (Bettina L. Knapp, Hunter College and CUNY Graduate Center)
