Searching for Emma : Gustave Flaubert and Madame Bovary by Dacia Maraini( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 607 libraries worldwide
Maraini argues that in their desire to claim Emma Bovary as a standard-bearer of revolt against patriarchal society, women have often overlooked the bitter, pitiless way in which Flaubert evokes Emma's insignificance and vulgarity. Searching for Emma guides us through Flaubert's novel and many of his letters, seeking out the sources of his obsessive cruelty toward Emma. Maraini relates Flaubert's contempt for Emma to his relationship with his mistress, Louise Colet, to his general terror of women, and to his own self-loathing. It was entirely in spite of himself, Maraini writes, that Flaubert created the female Don Quixote so admired for her restless spirit and ambition

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 273 libraries worldwide
Linking the collection together is Adele Sofia, a steel-nerved though tenderhearted police commissioner with a penchant for licorice at various points on the investigative trail, and whose job it is to hunt down those who prey on society's weakest and most vulnerable members. Told in a straight forward, unforgettably powerful and affecting manner in which the facts speak for themselves, Darkness illuminates the underbelly of Rome. With absorbing compassion and discretion Maraini creates a cast of characters who wake up each morning to a reality quite different from la dolce vita."--BOOK JACKET

Dacia Maraini, scrivendo una lettera all'amico Enzo Siciliano, rievoca la dolorosa esperienza della perdita - poco prima della nascita - di un figlio fortemente desiderato, e s'interroga sulla maternità, sui motivi che nella nostra società inducono alcune donne ad abortire mentre presso popolazioni con religione e usanze molto lontane dalle nostre la nascita di un figlio resta un evento irrinunciabile. L'autrice indaga inoltre sui significati mitologici, erotici, mercantili del corpo femminile e analizza il linguaggio della seduzione, la violenza, lo stupro, la prostituzione, il piacere, il senso di colpa, la verginità, il matrimonio
