Reading women’s fiction. Liala’s novels between uniqueness and standardization

Publication year
Álabe: Revista de Investigación sobre Lectura y Escritura

The aim of the paper is to analyse the case of the Italian writer Liala in the light of one specific aspect: the symbolic and crucial role of her work in the changes in Italian women’s fiction from the 1950s. Liala’s work represents a shift from the traditional narrative, where the role of the author is still crucial, to a writing process directly linked to the social, technological and distribution changes resulting from standardization and serialization in literature.
