Searching for Emma : Gustave Flaubert and Madame Bovary by Dacia Maraini( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 606 libraries worldwide
Although many writers blend autobiography and fiction, few have been so forthright in admitting it as Gustave Flaubert. Reflecting on his legendary novel and protagonist, he wrote: "Madame Bovary, c'est moi." Emma Bovary has become an icon for casual readers and feminists alike, but, as Dacia Maraini argues, she is one of the most problematic, though fascinating, female protagonists in modern literature. In this lively, learned, and very personal study, Maraini explores the profound and contradictory relationship between the writer Flaubert and the captivating heroine of his masterpiece

"The seeds for the twelve interconnected crime stories in Darkness came from the pages of the Italian daily papers.

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
