Characterising the Anthropocene: Ecological Degradation in Italian Twenty-First Century Literary Writing

This product is not available in the selected currency.


This book applies the analytical methods of third-wave ecocriticism to selected twenty-first century Italian literary works. Turning abstract issues into narrative form, literary writing increases awareness of environmental issues as well as exerting a deep emotive influence on its readership. The author analyses Roberto Saviano's "Gomorra", Kai Zen's "Delta blues", Wu Ming's "Previsioni del tempo", Simona Vinci's "Rovina", Giancarlo di Cataldo's "Fuoco!", Laura Pugno's "Sirene", and Alessandra Montrucchio's "E poi la sete". He demonstrates that these works offer an invaluable opportunity to communicate meaningfully and accessibly the discomforting truths of global environmental change.
