About the Author:

Luigi Capuana (Mineo, 28 maggio 1839 – Catania, 29 novembre 1915) è stato uno scrittore, critico letterario e giornalista italiano, teorico tra i più importanti del Verismo. Capuana nasce a Mineo, in provincia di Catania (nel 1839), da una famiglia di agiati proprietari terrieri e a Mineo frequenta le scuole comunali. Nel 1851 si iscrive al Reale Collegio di Bronte che lascia dopo solo due anni per motivi di salute, proseguendo comunque lo studio da autodidatta. Conseguita la licenza si iscrive, nel 1857, alla Facoltà di Giurisprudenza di Catania che abbandona nel 1860 per prendere parte all'impresa garibaldina in funzione di segretario del comitato clandestino insurrezionale di Mineo e in seguito come cancelliere nel nascente consiglio civico. Risale al 1861 la leggenda drammatica in tre canti "Garibaldi" pubblicata a Catania dall'editore Galatola. Nel 1864 si stabilisce a Firenze per tentare "l'avventura letteraria", e vi rimarrà fino al 1868. A Firenze frequenta gli scrittori più noti dell'epoca, tra i quali Aleardo Aleardi, C. Capponi, C. Levi e nel 1865 pubblica i suoi primi saggi critici sulla "Rivista italica", diventando nel 1866 critico teatrale del quotidiano "La Nazione". Nel 1867 pubblica sul quotidiano fiorentino la sua prima novella dal titolo "Il dottor Cymbalus" che prende a modello il racconto di Dumas figlio La boîte d'argent. Tra le opere narrative migliori di Capuana sono da annoverare le novelle ispirate alla vita siciliana, ai personaggi e ai fatti grotteschi e tragici della propria provincia, come nel realismo bozzettistico di alcuni racconti della raccolta "Le paesane" e in altre che non presentano situazioni drammatiche, ma sono divertenti e cercano sempre di mettere in evidenza il lato comico anche se il caso si fa serio. Nelle novelle numerosi sono i ritratti dei canonici, dei prevosti, dei frati cercatori con la passione della caccia, del gioco e della buona tavola, tipici di tanti personaggi della narrativa del secondo Ottocento. Le fiabe, scritte in una prosa svelta, semplificata al massimo, ricche di ritornelli, cadenze e cantilene rimangono forse le opere più felici del Capuana. Esse non nascono da un interesse per il patrimonio folkloristico siciliano e non vengono raccolte come documenti della psicologia popolare, ma nascono dall'invenzione. Di queste l'unico volume reperibile è: Si conta e si racconta (Muglia Editore, 1913; Pellicanolibri, 1985).

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 192 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781478113072
