Il mestiere di scrivere : Italo Calvino e Natalia Ginzburg, posizioni, pratiche, opere di due professionisti della scrittura
- This project examines the intersection of fictional writing and editorial work in the careers of two of post-war Italy's leading literary figures, Natalia Ginzburg and Italo Calvino. I explore the ways in which these writers, working for Einaudi -- the most prestigious Italian publisher of the time -- could control the forms in which their works came to be published and at the same time sought to shape the reception, both nationally and internationally, of their own books. At the same time, I analyze how the aesthetic choices of these writers are influenced by their privileged position as editors, literary agents, and readers of others' works for publication.
