In Italics PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

In Italics free pdf Poet and novelist Antonio D'Alfonso has been writing essays and giving in-depth interviews for twenty years. This collection contains the most important of these texts which have been reworked into a coherent entity. D'Alfonso discusses the importance of ethnic awareness which he places at the antipodes of territorial nationalism for which ethnicity is too often mistaken. The themes raised in this eclectic book relate to general culture, language, literature, film and publishing. Though it is the Italian perspective (which the author prefers to call Italic) that is favoured, the themes and concepts developed are applicable to other cultures and countries. In Italics is a polemical and unblushing defence for the individual's right to a collective Imaginary, no matter which country one lives in.
