About this title


"The anthology will provide a comprehensive overview of the journey as a structuring metaphor as it parallels or anticipates the revolutionary social and cultural changes taking place at a crucial juncture in Italian and European history."--Silvia Ruffo Fiore, University of South Florida
The journey is one of the most enduring and complex themes in the literature of Western civilization. These essays illustrate Italy's contribution to the history of the trope during a time when countries became increasingly interdependent and conscious of each other's cultures.  Taking into account the inconsistencies and contradictions of the metaphor of the journey, they demonstrate that Italian authors of nineteenth-century fiction, poetry, and essays expanded its creative potential and its core of moral and artistic significance. 
 The authors--international specialists--include the distinguished scholar M. H. Abrams, who traces the most vital aspects of the journey motif in world literature from its biblical origins to this century.
 This anthology will appeal to Italianists in general, to specialists on Romanticism, and to all students of European literature.
