Grazia Deledda ( 1871 - 1936) was a Sardinian writer whose works won her a Nobel Prize for Literature in 1926.

She was born into a bourgeois family, attended elementary school and then she was educated by a private tutor.

She first published some novels on the magazine "L'ultima moda" when it still published works in prose and poetry.

Nell'azzurro, published by Trevisani in 1890 might be considered as her first work.

Still between prose and poetry are, among the first works, Paesaggi sardi, published by Speirani in 1896.

In 1900 the writer moved to Rome and after the publishing of Anime oneste in 1895 and of Il vecchio della montagna in 1900 critics began to get interested in her work.

In 1903 she published Elias Portolu that confirmed her as a writer and started her work as a successful writer of novels and theatrical works: Cenere (1904), L'edera (1906), Sino al confine (1911), Colombo e sparvieri (1912), Canne al vento (1913), L'incendio nell'oliveto (1918), Il Dio dei venti (1922).

Cenere was the inspiration for a movie with the famous Italian actress Eleonora Duse.

Her work has been highly regarded by Luigi Capuana and Giovanni Verga plus some younger writers such as Enrico Thovez, Pietro Pancrazi and Renato Serra.
