It is a scholarly, detailed analysis of the literary art, the philosophical ideas, and the psychologies of Albert Camus, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Simone de Beauvoir. It is also a competent effort to explain the positive implications for the theory of freedom and possibility which lie half buried under this literature of nothingness, alienation, and absurdity. . . . Miss Barnes makes thoroughly enjoyable reading of a subject-matter which might have seemed forbidding."--Herbert W. Schneider, Journal of Philosophy. "Recommended unqualifiedly as the most thorough and reliable exposition of the works of Sartre, Camus, and de Beauvoir to have appeared in this country."--Willard Colston, Chicago Sun-Times. "Those who want a real understanding of existentialism instead of the usual superficial generalizations are certain to gain it from this book."--Walter Kaufmann, The American Scholar. "The book captures much of the forlorn dark grandeur of the existentialist vision of the human condition."--Yale Review. "The philosophy of Sartre is presented accurately and with rare elegance and simplicity. . . . The section on psychoanalysis compares Sartre to Freud, then to Horney and Fromm, then to the phenomenologists. The treatment is fair-minded and careful."--Robert Champigny, L'Esprit Crateur.

In this book, author David Del Principe asks whether unspeakable truths in their works kept an entire generation of nineteenth-century Italian writers known as the "scapigliati" at the margins of Italian literary life and sparked critics to deride the movement known as Scapigliatura. It is coincidental that issues and themes submerged in their graveyard poetics - physical and psychic transference, sexual identity, vampirism, the supernatural, androgyny, and decadence - have become controversial at the turn of another century while literary and cultural interest in Scapigliatura has reemerged? Scapigliatura, the term that Cletto Arrighi chose to characterize the literary movement led by Ugo Tarchetti, Carlo Dossi, Emilio Praga, Camillo and Arrigo Boito, Giovanni Faldella, Giovanni Camerana, and others, took place in Milan and Turin in the 1860s and 1870s. As social and political visionaries, the "scapigliati" acquired reputations as consummate anticonformists, lacing their works with protests against capitalism, Catholicism, and militarism, and living in perpetual conflict with a prospering bourgeoisie. A desperate resolve to flee from cultural, sociopolitical, and literary strangulation instilled an apocalyptic vision and an affinity for self-destruction in the scapigliati. In fact, several of them lived relatively short lives, and Tarchetti's own tormented life has come to exemplify the anguish of the era of Scapigliatura. Although these artists are loosely grouped as a literary movement, the influence of Scapigliatura has been rightfully confirmed in Decadent fin de siecle literature and, arguably, in the twentieth-century historical avant-garde.
