When he committed suicide at age fortyone, Cesare Pavese (1908–1950) was one of Italy’s bestknown writers. A poet, novelist, literary critic, and translator, he had been profoundly influenced in his early years by American literature. But later he grew disaffected with American culture, coming to see it as materialistic and shallow. This book, the first fulllength Englishlanguage study of Pavese in twenty years, examines his life and the evolution of his views of America through a chronological reading of his works.
