Con questo racconto Francesca Diotallevi conduce il lettore nel mondo del suo romanzo Dentro soffia il vento. In Valle d’Aosta, alla vigilia della Prima guerra mondiale, Fiamma vive appartata in un capanno tra i boschi e la comunità di Saint Rhémy, dove tutti la considerano una sorta di strega. Tutti, tranne il giovane Raphaël Rosset, che sente crescere per quella ragazza solitaria e dai capelli rossi un’irresistibile attrazione. Yann, suo fratello, tenta in tutti i modi di proteggerlo da quello che appare, ai suoi occhi, come un vero e proprio sortilegio e di salvaguardarlo dall’ira del padre. Partiti per una battuta di caccia guidata dal padre, in quei boschi che tutti ritengono abitati da streghe, i giovani fratelli scopriranno però di non essere così diversi...

Home Ground and Foreign Territory is an original collection of essays on early Canadian literature in English. Aiming to be both provocative and scholarly, it encompasses a variety of (sometimes opposing) perspectives, subjects, and methods, with the aim of reassessing the field, unearthing neglected texts, and proposing new approaches to canonical authors. Renowned experts in early Canadian literary studies, including D.M.R. Bentley, Mary Jane Edwards, and Carole Gerson, join emerging scholars in a collection distinguished by its clarity of argument and breadth of reference. Together, the essays offer bold and informative contributions to the study of this dynamic literature. Home Ground and Foreign Territory reaches out far beyond the scope of early Canadian literature. Its multi-disciplinary approach innovates literal studies and appeals to literature specialists and general readership alike.
