Prisoners of Hope: The Silver Age of the Italian Jews, 1924-1974

Author(s): H. Stuart Hughes

Europe

The cultural historian H. Stuart Hughes examines the works of Italo Svevo, Alberto Moravia, Carlo Levi, Primo Levi, Natalia Ginzburg, and Giorgio Bassani - six Italian prose writers of Jewish or part-Jewish origin - and shows how these writers combine in various measures their ancestral Jewish heritage with recent experiences of antisemitic persecution.
