This paper reviews the history of the publication of Elsa Morante's short stories, from the very first publications scattered through several journals and magazines to the posthumous publications, and in the middle two collections by the author herself: "Il gioco segreto" ("The secret game") (1941) and "Lo scialle andaluso" ("The andalusian shawl") (1963). This reveals the author's uncompromising strategy in which she tried to disguise her juvenile attempts, a list of which is included in the references along with any re-found work. The fact sheet lists the features of the two collections by the author and highlights some inconsistencies in the posthumous collections. The paper ends with a sample of subjects from some short stories that wer never published in one volume (neither by the author nor in any porthumous collection) and which are evidence of the critical importance of such texts, in the hope a ful, systematic collection of Elsa Morante's short stories may soon be prepared.

Abstract

This paper reviews the history of the publication of Elsa Morante's short stories, from the very first publications scattered through several journals and magazines to the posthumous publications, and in the middle two collections by the author herself: "Il gioco segreto" ("The secret game") (1941) and "Lo scialle andaluso" ("The andalusian shawl") (1963). This reveals the author's uncompromising strategy in which she tried to disguise her juvenile attempts, a list of which is included in the references along with any re-found work. The fact sheet lists the features of the two collections by the author and highlights some inconsistencies in the posthumous collections. The paper ends with a sample of subjects from some short stories that wer never published in one volume (neither by the author nor in any porthumous collection) and which are evidence of the critical importance of such texts, in the hope a ful, systematic collection of Elsa Morante's short stories may soon be prepared.
