Il mastro don gesualdo di giovanni verga


Mastro-don Gesualdo is an Italian novel written by Giovanni Verga, published in 1889. The first English edition, Mastro-don Gesualdo (1928), was translated by D. H. Lawrence and was published in London by Jonathan Cape. Giovanni Cecchetti, in his introduction to the 1979 edition, describes it as a masterpiece.

The novel is divided in four parts, each of them is made by several chapters.

Mastro Don Gesualdo deals with Gesualdo Motta, a man who focus his life on his economic assets instead of personal relationships, ending up crushed by the empty life he created. Gesualdo lives in Vizzini (Sicily) during the Italian unification.
