"After serving time in mainland Italy for a minor theft, Elias Portolu returns home to Nuoro, in rural Sardinia. Lonely and vulnerable after his prison exile, he falls in love with Maddalena, his brother's fiancee. He finds himself trapped by social and religious strictures, his passion and guilt winding into a spiral of anguish and paralyzing indecision. For guidance he turns to the village priest, who advises him to resist temptation; then he turns to the pagan "father of the woods," who recognizes the weakness of human will and urges him to declare his love before it is too late. Finally Elias chooses a course that provides a measure of redemption but forces him into a position from which he can only helphlessly observe the results of his affair."--Back cover

"This novel begins with Constantino Ledda's conviction and sentencing for the murder of his cruel uncle. Though innocent of the crime, he accepts the guilty verdict as punishment for marrying Giovanna Era through a civil ceremony rather than an expensive church wedding. When her husband is taken away, Giovanna has no way to provide for herself, her mother, or her son, who soon dies of malnutrition. Out of desperation she divorces Constantino, according to a new law for wives of convicts, and marries a wealthy but brutish landowner. When the true murderer confesses and Constantino returns, he and Giovanna begin a forbidden and ultimately destructive affair."--

Cosima by Grazia Deledda( Book )

59 editions published between 1937 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pur sotto forma romanzesca, "Cosima" è l'autobiografia di Grazia Deledda pubblicata postuma nel 1937. In "Cosima" si apprende che gli anni dell'infanzia e dell'adolescenza della Deledda furono segnati da una ininterrotta catena di sciagure. Un fratello, Santus, precipita nell'alcolismo sino al delirium tremens, l'altro fratello, Andrea, viene arrestato, anche se per piccoli furti, provocando la morte di crepacuore del padre, e la conseguente perdita dell'agiatezza. La sorella Giovanna muore di angina in tenera età, e un'altra sorella, Enza, muore a ventun'anni in un tentativo di aborto, attanagliata dal senso di colpa per aver sposato un uomo di condizione inferiore fra l'esecrazione dei parenti. Una terza sorella, Beppa, verrà invece atrocemente beffata dopo la promessa di fidanzamento fattale da un pretendente "continentale". Si trova nel romanzo inoltre qualche fugace accenno ai difficili esordi sessuali di Cosima/Grazia, i quali danno la misura del clima di feroce arretratezza che incatenava l'esistenza della scrittrice. Queste difficoltà ambientali, unite al clima di soffocante pregiudizio verso la sua nascente vocazione letteraria, dovettero maturare nella Deledda quei fermi propositi di fuga dall'ambiente nuorese e sardo, che in seguito si realizzeranno soltanto grazie all'unica soluzione possibile per una donna del suo tempo (a meno di possedere un'idea di ribellione sociale, peraltro mai presa in considerazione dalla scrittrice sarda), vale a dire: il matrimonio. La meta della fuga, il luogo del sogno è Roma. Proprio a una rivista romana la Deledda inviò la sua prima novella, cui seguirono generosi incoraggiamenti e l'invito a inviarne altre. Ma non saranno ancora questi primi, fuggevoli successi a consentirle il sognato abbandono dell'isola: bisognerà aspettare ancora. Sino a quando a Cagliari, in un'aura un po' inverosimile come in quelle fiabe tanto amate dalla scrittrice nell'infanzia, Cosima/Grazia incontra "l'uomo della salvezza": l'impiegato romano Palmiro Madesani, che la Deledda sposerà nel giro di pochi mesi, trasferendosi con lui finalmente a Roma. Tratto da "Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani - Volume 36" (1988) di Angelo Pellegrino L'autrice Grazia Cosima Deledda (Nuoro, 27 settembre 1871 - Roma, 15 agosto 1936) è stata una scrittrice italiana, vincitrice del Premio Nobel per la letteratura nel 1926
