Reeds in the wind by Grazia Deledda( Book )

283 editions published between 1913 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La narrativa della Deledda, posta ora nella scia del verismo di Verga, ora accostata al decadentismo dannunziano, racconta di forti vicende d'amore, di dolore e di morte, nelle quali domina il senso religioso del peccato e la tragica coscienza di un inesorabile destino. Nella sua prosa si consuma la fusione carnale tra luoghi e figure, tra stati d'animo e paesaggio, tra gli uomini e la terra di Sardegna, luogo mitico e punto di partenza per un viaggio dell'anima alla scoperta di un mondo ancestrale e primitivo.

"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.

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."--

"The Church of Solitude tells the story of Maria Concezione, a young Sardinian seamstress living with breast cancer at the cusp of the twentieth century. Overwhelmed by the shame of her diagnosis, she decides that no one can know what has happened to her, but the heavy burden of this secrecy changes her life in dramatic ways and almost causes the destruction of several people in her life. This surprising novel paints the portrait of a woman facing the unknown with courage, faith, and self-reliance, and is the last and most autobiographical work of Grazia Deledda, who died of breast cancer in 1936, shortly after its publication."--Back cover
