Grazia Deledda ( 1871 – 1936) was a Sardinian writer whose works won her a Nobel Prize for Literature in 1926.
Nell’azzurro, published by Trevisani in 1890 might be considered as her first 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.
