About this title

Synopsis:

The history of totalitarian states bears witness to the fact that literature and print media can be manipulated and made into vehicles of mass deception. Censorship and Literature in Fascist Italy is the first comprehensive account of how the Fascists attempted to control Italy's literary production.

Guido Bonsaver looks at how the country's major publishing houses and individual authors responded to the new cultural directives imposed by the Fascists. Throughout his study, Bonsaver uses rare and previously unexamined materials to shed light on important episodes in Italy's literary history, such as relationships between the regime and particular publishers, as well as individual cases involving renowned writers like Moravia, Da Verona, and Vittorini. Censorship and Literature in Fascist Italy charts the development of Fascist censorship laws and practices, including the creation of the Ministry of Popular Culture and the anti-Semitic crack-down of the late 1930s.

Examining the breadth and scope of censorship in Fascist Italy, from Mussolini's role as 'prime censor' to the specific experiences of female writers, this is a fascinating look at the vulnerability of culture under a dictatorship.

From the Back Cover:

'Censorship and Literature in Fascist Italy is an extremely well-researched and well-written study, brilliantly organized and concisely argued. Guido Bonsaver touches on a variety of fascinating topics, from Mussolini's personal role in literary production to the treatment of Jewish writers under the fascist regime. It is a pleasure to read.'-Jacqueline Reich, Department of European Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, Stony Brook University
