Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Luigi Capuana (May 28, 1839 - November 29, 1915) was an Italian author and journalist and one of the most important members of the Verist movement. He was a contemporary of Giovanni Verga, both having been born in the province of Catania within a year of each other. He was also one of the first authors influenced by the works of mile Zola, French author and creator of Naturalism. Capuana also wrote poetry in Sicilian, of which an example appears below. He was the author of plays (Garibaldi, Vanitas Vanitatum, Parodie, Semiritmi), stories (Studi sulla letteratura contemporanea, Per l'arte, Gli "ismi" contemporanei, Cronache letterarie, Il teatro italiano contemporaneo), novels (Giacinta, Marchesa di Roccaverdina, La sfinge, Profumo, Rassegnazione) and various other theatrical works.show more
