About the Author:
Grazia Deledda (1871- 1936) was born in Nuoro, Sardinia, which forms the setting for most of her fiction. In 1900 she moved to Rome with her husband, where she was commissioned to codify the folklore on her native island. Her subsequent work is informed and inspired by this research and by a keen understanding of the conflicts produced by the convergence of Christianity, strict social mores, and pagan superstition in rural Sardinia. In 1926 she became the second woman to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature, awarded in recognition of the enduring power of her work and its consistent impact on a global audience. Remarkably, her work is little known to English- speaking audiences. Northwestern University Press also publishes After the Divorce, another of her novels.
Martha King teaches Italian literature at Gonzaga University in Florence, Italy. She has also translated works by Pratolini, Maraini, Banti, Leopardi, and Arcangeli.
