Lampedusa

Speaker: ,

When Lampedusa’s novel, The Leopard was published in Italy, soon after the author’s death in 1957, the Italian literary establishment was astonished. How could an almost unknown Sicilian Prince have written a great novel set in the turbulent Italy of the 1860s? Italian literary scholar Joe Farrell and author Allan Massie discuss the furore and ask if The Leopard is the greatest historical novel written in the twentieth century.

Sponsored, with Sicilian wine, by Valvona & Crolla.
