Small essays on big themes by Italian writer Natalia Ginzburg
December 16, The Little Virtues, by Natalia Ginzburg. Translated from the Italian by Dick Davis. New York: Seaver Books. Novelist, playwright, critic, editor, translator, and currently a member of the Italian Parliament, Natalia Ginzburg writes with a directness that instantly captures our attention.
Where Baldini was cultured, dashing, intelligent, and interested, Ginzburg writes herself as being a pale shadow of her husband — she admits that when she is forced on cultural outings, she inevitably dozes off. He comes off as a bit of a jerk, going out of his way to make her feel bad about herself. She defended the author, pointing out that context was important: Ginzburg was an Italian woman in the s, operating in a patriarchal society. Austen, a conservative writer by most accounts, still managed to tweak the patriarchy of Georgian England. No one could call Austen a feminist, but her characters challenged a lot of the conventions. I read about two-three books a week.
In Reading Women , the Cut talks to women who interest us about the books by women that transformed the way they think. The book that influenced me the most in my life as a writer is a small book of essays called The Little Virtues by the Italian writer Natalia Ginzburg. I was quite young, in my late 20s and early 30s, when I read that book, and it taught me who I was as a writer. And she discovers that she is not a fiction writer, but in fact a personal essayist. She sees that only by being a person who is able to touch the deepest parts of her own self, as a writer, can she experience and practice generosity towards others. The deepest lesson that I learned was that I was going to become a personal essayist, and that it was as an essayist that I would try to use myself, not to speak about myself, but to explore the world.
The Little Virtues
New York: Berg, No price given. This first global English study of Natalia Ginzburg responds to a great need among the general public as well as scholars and teachers of Italian women's literature, who can now read most of Ginzburg's fiction in translation but need a key to interpret it. Alan Bullock's Natalia Ginzburg finally does justice to an author, who has so far been treated piecemeal mainly in newspaper or journal articles. Bullock approaches the subject in a scholarly manner, after an ample research of a great variety of Italian and foreign sources. He lets Ginzburg's life and art speak for themselves, allowing the author to spring to life like the heroines of her many stories. Furthermore, he writes in the steady, unhurried pace of Victorian biographers, making the book read like a novel.

Characters in the text, symbolism, and faulty relationships define the oppression between man and woman. By analyzing characters in the story, the reader captures a firm grasp on the position of women from both a male and female standpoint. Natalia Ginzburg, the author of the story and the main character herself, writes about various ways she faces oppression from her husband. Just about everything she does is considered a nuisance to him.
