About this product
- DescriptionBeppe Feglio (1922-1963) is one of Italy's major postwar writers. His contemporary Italo Calvi described one of his vels, Una questione privata, as the work that his generation had dreamed of writing. But it is Feglio's posthumously published Il partigia Johnny, based on the author's experience as a partisan in the Langhe hills during World War Two, and written in an intriguing mixture of Italian and English, which is considered to be his master-piece. This new in-depth study argues that Il partigia Johnny can best be interpreted by understanding the complex narrative techniques that Feglio employs, and by firmly placing the work within its historical context. It also proposes a new solution to the puzzle of the language of this fascinating and complex work.
