    Written in the 1880s by a writer, Neera, who proclaimed herself to be an anti feminist in her essays, but who also wrote strikingly progressive and subversive novels, Teresa is a not so known masterpiece of Italian literature It is the beautifully told story of a young woman trying to figure out her place in a society that reserves only one function to women that of caregivers of husband and children When her father prevents her from marrying her first and only love, Egidio Orlandi, Ter Written in the 1880s by a writer, Neera, who proclaimed herself to be an anti feminist in her essays, but who also wrote strikingly progressive and subversive novels, Teresa is a not so known masterpiece of Italian literature It is the beautifully told story of a young woman trying to figure out her place in a society that reserves only one function to women that of caregivers of husband and children When her father prevents her from marrying her first and only love, Egidio Orlandi, Teresa continues to love him and to dream of him, while he tries to build himself a career as a journalist As years go by and Egidio never gets a stable job that would allow him to marry her, the author follows Teresa through the slow physical and psychological unraveling that turns her into an embittered spinster Neera shows that behind the social stereotype of unmarried women lies a very complex social history She eloquently describes the extent to which women s fate is often sealed by economic considerations and by a hierarchy of choices dictated by gender All this is achieved with a wisdom of touch and a realism that keeps the reader rooting for the protagonist until the very end and the end is indeed quite surprising and very modern
