Show Summary Details


With the success of Wild Dreams: The Best of “Italian Americana”, the authors released a second volume and this time it is about Italian-American women. From Italian Americana's very inception in 1974, articles about Italian-American women as well as poems and memoirs penned by women, and book reviews about such major authors as Helen Barolini and Daniela Gioseffi, graced the journal's pages. Through the 1970s and '80s short stories written by women were published. In reviewing the thirty-five-year history of Italian Americana, the authors chose a broad range of articles with an eye to many disciplines. The final section in the collection may be of special interest to scholars — although it is thought all readers will discover a wealth of information. In addition to a retrospective of scholarly literature, the final section points to resources for future research.
