A-level Italian

Natalia Ginzburg is possibly one of the first Italian feminists. Her style has often been criticized for being too simple, almost childlike. This is in fact her genius: involving  the reader into human tragedy which then becomes easily accessible to all. Her stories are told by women in the first person which obviously involves more women readers but ultimately involves all readers and becomes a plea to understand human nature. When a message is put in such a delicate and simple way, it has a higher chance of being understood, hence her genius and my passion for her.
