BeschreibungThis is the first English translation of a famous feminist novel (1886), by the celebrated pseudonymous Italian author Anna Radius Zuccari (1846-1918). It's the story of a tax collector's daughter, the eponymous Teresa, whose fiction-derived dreams of romantic happiness are stifled by her family's enduring demands. Rejecting her charming suitor Orlandi, she surrenders her youth caring for them - only to find, many years after, that her eventual freedom to join the man she loves amounts simply to a continuation of her servitude. A quietly told story that gradually accumulates great power, rich in local color, memorable characterizations, and devastating dramatic irony. (Kirkus Reviews)
