Helen Barolini’s Reflections on Rejected Identity


One of the key topics of Helen Barolini’s essays is the problem of rejected identity in migratory context which the American author analyses from a double perspective: from the point of view of Italian immigrants facing difficulties imposed by the new reality, and from the point of view of
immigrant writers obliged to censor themselves because of the stereotypes existing in the local culture. Barolini examines the situation of the Italian community in the 20th century USA, but her reflections are valuable also in other (the present-day European/Italian) contexts.
