Milano, Paolo
December 1954
New Republic;12/13/54, Vol. 131 Issue 24, p16
The article presents reflection of the author on Italian literature. The author comments that Italian literature is in a state of transition, which has a specific character and very concrete reasons of its own. The author states that the one of the two books that were awarded Italy's chief literary prizes this summer is a novel by Mario Soldati titled "Letters From Capri." In this novel two main characters are Americans. Its hero, Harry, is an American art-historian living in Italy. He is a Protestant and his wife, Jane is an American Catholic in Italy.
