about

Reading, writing, translating; the avant-garde and tradition; the fate of the novel: these are some of the themes of The Written World and the Unwritten World . A collection of essays, forewords, articles, interviews, notes, and other occasional pieces, this work displays Calvino's remarkable intelligence and razor-sharp wit as he explores the meaning of literature in a rapidly changing world. Drawn from Mondo scritto e mondo non scritto (2002), Sulla fiaba (1988), and uncollected essays, this volume of previously untranslated work-now rendered in English by Ann Goldstein-is a major statement in literary criticism.
ITALO CALVINO (1923-1985) attained worldwide renown as the author of Invisible Cities, The Baron in the Trees, and numerous collections of fiction and essays. ANN GOLDSTEIN has translated widely from Italian, including the works of Elena Ferrante, Primo Levi, Alessandro Baricco, and other authors.
