New Publication: The Works of Claudio Magris by Nicoletta Pireddu

Posted in News Story

The first English book on contemporary Italian writer Claudio Magris, this study examines the connections between space and individual, national and European identity in his works. Through the recurring image of temporary homes, the book explores Magris’s ceaseless search for meaning and values, aiming at a habitable life, where diversity and tolerance can prevail over fundamentalism. 

Nicoletta Pireddu’s innovative analysis involves Magris’s entire fiction and non-fiction writings, down to his most recent, still untranslated collections which confirm the enduring value of the humanities as a critical and constructive tool.
