Issue #48: War and its aftermaths | A tribute to Beppe Fenoglio's centenary

The Hypercritic Weekly Newsletter
Dear Hypercritics, 
On March 1, 1922, Beppe Fenoglio, was born in Alba, Italy. A writer and translator, he was one of the greatest representatives of Italian neorealism. His novels focus mainly on the rural world of the Langhe, war, and the Italian resistance movement 🖋️
His work has inspired contemporary and following generations of authors to report on the war and its dramatic consequences on individuals and society.
On the occasion of Beppe Fenoglio’s centenary, today’s issue offers an itinerary among the works connected to his work both in terms of theme and time, taken from our archives.
