review Novelle rusticane 103 FIRST PUBLISHED in a single volume in 1883 the stories collected in Little Novels of Sicily are drawn from the Sicily of Giovanni Verga's childhood reported at the time to be the poorest place in Europe Verga's style is swift sure and implacable; he plunges into his stories almost in midbreath and tells them with a stark economy of words There's something dark and tightly coiled at the heart of each story an ironic bitter resolution that is belied by the deceptive simplicity of Verga's prose and Verga strikes just when the reader's not expecting itTranslator D H Lawrence. Giovanni Verga s Little Novels of Sicily sounded so charming so downright uaint to this reader s ear that I was unprepared for the picaresueness and even the morbidity of these stories But they are deeply affecting and strike an unusual balance between expressiveness and subtlety which I suppose is only helped by having a translator like DH LawrenceMy awareness of this novel depends on the particular judgment of Harold Bloom who places Little Novels on his canonical list but leaves off I Malvoglio which apparently is Verga s better known work But I have discovered so many obscure treasures through Bloom that I relish opportunities like this to broaden my literary spectrum It s like setting aside all the Chardonnays and Pinots to taste a FrappatoThe little n Hell in a Handbasket Devilish Debutantes #2 reported at the time to be the poorest place in Europe Verga's style is swift sure and implacable; he plunges into his stories almost in midbreath and tells them with a stark economy of words There's something dark and tightly coiled at the heart of each story an ironic bitter Say Your Abc With Me resolution that is belied by the deceptive simplicity of Verga's prose and Verga strikes just when the The Outcast Dead reader's not expecting itTranslator D H Lawrence.
